Introduce Yourself Here #897
Hey everyone. My name is Dave and I'm from NY. I just started dabbling with stop motion and I am now hooked. I've made 1 video, (pretty crappy) but I'm learning. I love the fact there are so many different mediums to use, i.e. clay, legos, paper, just about anything. I have a bunch of ideas, but first there is quite a bit I need to learn. Looking forward to gaining knowledge and sharing with the people here.

Hello, im greta. Im in Louisville, ky. I too have just started to dabble in claymation with the hopes to succeed in it some how. I grew up watching the classics of Gumby, christmas specials, chicken run, nightmare before Christmas, etc. Ive always wanted to create stop motion videos.

Hello Everybody,

My name is Chris Neuhahn. I'm new to stop motion but not to animation. I've been working in CG TV animation (Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation TV) for 8+ years. In my personal work I've been chasing a more stop motion style and thought Why not just do stop motion. That plus being tired of staring at a computer for 18 hours a day made me decide to re-imagine shorts I did in 1999 and 2004 as stop motion with a very hand-made feel.



You can see some of my progress on Instagram or Tumblr: @mcsteed

I'm looking forward to digging around the forum and seeing what everyone is up to. :)

Hi all! Nice little forum you've got going on here. I may have to have a go at one of these monthly challenges...

I'm new to stop motion, but I've been experimenting with film for a number of years.

I'm currently formulating a plan for a series of horror / comedy short claymations. Can't wait to share the results with you all!

Cheers!

Hi,

My name is John. I took a 25 year or so break from clay animating (Tried it when I was a kid). I've decided to try my hands at it again with a couple of short vignettes that I hope to finish in the next month. Big thanks to Marc and everyone else for all of the great info and pictures/video you're posting.

Welcome to the site Clint! A good average puppet size for humanoids is around 8-9 inches tall. I wouldn't try to make one under 6 inches or over 10. Too small and the joints are hard to manipulate, too tall and your puppet armature has to be very strong (and the puppet light) or it's hard to balance it for walks. So 8-9 is a size I'd shoot for if you're starting out.
