    Default T.R.G. Productions - The Egg

    Yet another claymation by me. I think I'm trying to do them too quickly. I should probably spend longer on one and make it last longer rather than have a bad quality one that comes out shortly after the previous one. Thanks for any critique!!

    Seeing as you only joined the forum in May, you probablu misses a great series of claymation shorts posted one per dat throughout Advent, by British Eye Films.

    You may find some inspiration here.

    I like the characters but you need to get them to do something. You need to create a story for them so get out a sheet of paper and work out the following....

    the hero, define this character, what is his/her motivation, strengths and weaknesses

    problem, that needs to be solved

    antagonist, who is preventing the hero from fixing/solving this problem

    hurdles, the hero has to overcome to solve the problem, separate from the antagonist

    solution

    the payoff, the outcome after the solution has been applied to the problem

    The camera in your animation is moving about too much, you need to secure it better or use a remote control and set the exposure to manual, I can see changes in the exposure.

    You know, that point about securing the camera better is completely true. During the process of making the film, I actually knocked the camera completely over a couple of times. That is usually difficult to correct, trying to find the exact location of where the camera was before. But thanks for the sugestions.

    Those seem to be very well done. I'm trying to get my claymations to look as fluid as those. Maybe my next one will be!

    That's the spirit! And as Nikosony says get working on a story & characters. Get into your characters, find their motivation.
