    Default Animation

    I've just started a 2 week animation course at my local art school. I did this course last year also and it's a lot of fun. The main things we do are short, low-res claymation movies but it's all fun. I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with animation/stop-motion.

    One of my friends and I tried to make a stop-motion movie with Legos once, but we failed miserably. We found it almost impossible to move just a single part of the Lego guys withouth bumping and jarring their hats, heads, etc.

    I just stick to real video. :P

    yeah, legos and playmobile are really hard to work with (I've tried both). Clay is a bit easier though. Continuity is always a problem though.

    It's really annoying isn't it when those lego actors change clothes between takes. Can ruin a whole afternoon of stop motion before you realise eh?

    lol, one time i was trying to make a stop motion movie with legos and after i was done i realized halfway through my making the movie my brother decided that he liked the head on my main character and swapped it out. I had a policeman's head for the first half and a pirate's for the second.

    Maybe he was making a political comment?

    Yeah,
    Tried lego with a mate when I was about 14. Took all day to do about 30 seconds (and that was with 2 frames/second - looked super shit!!!)

    I can't imagine how long it would take if I tried now, with 25 frames a second and actually trying to do it properly!!!
    The saying \"always back up your work\" applies to video aswell!!
