Not bad Gornon, it's a simple idea but in a way there's a bit of comedy to the story. It hearkens back to the 1950's when B-movies always had alien...
Hmm, I can't think of a use off-hand for mattress springs. Unless you've got a specific need, it might be a good idea to take a few out with some pliers and hold onto them in case something comes up?
Hi Delmonico, sad to say our image uploads were broken temporarily for a few days while I did an update. I'm sorry for that. I can't see any pictures sad to say but it sounds like you understand how the seams can be noticed if you put them in a visible area. One tip I can give you if you want to clean up seams is to use a soldering iron to melt and smooth them into your model. If you're using simple casting latex that's an old trick that has been used by some studios. However make sure you do it near a fan that sucks the fumes outside, it can be very smelly.
I believe the foam in that video is technically called floral foam. It's a kind of foam that you use to put together fake floral arrangements and is very light with a fine cell structure. You can get it in a green color in Michaels craft stores and maybe Hobby Lobby if you have one nearby. They sell it in hobby shops too where you can buy model trains under different names. The stuff for train building dioramas is usually a lot nicer than the floral foam since it is designed for the purposes of mini-landscaping.
When you use those foam tools just make sure to have a fan suck the fumes away from you, it can be smelly. You can also use a soldering iron to put in details or the foam knife tools in our online store. The foam tools are designed for foams while soldering irons can work but get hotter than needed.
It looks like you made some major progress. I appreciate the simple set and puppet designs, it all looks very clean. I think if you keep at it and you make sure your story is interesting it should be great.
Rest in peace worm Nice video!

About meI created AnimateClay.com for all new and experienced stop motion animators. When I grew up, there were no really good resources or tutorials. Nowadays, I and many other animators built sites and the information can be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection. I hope this site helps anyone interested in this less-than-extinct art form.
