SOUNDS: Audacity manipulated recordings, my recorded voice
Animation: My own, made through iStopmotion via Clay, paper, tinfoil, etc.

This is a stop motion film done for class last year. Its claymation, and everything in it is hand made. The concept was to make an animation loosely connected to an article we had in class.

My Article was about Spam on the Internet. You just can't get rid of it. So... dragons are kinda like medieval spam don't ya think? They just come in and cause yer whole system to crash/slow down and they just annoy the heck out of you. And they're really hard to get rid of. Unless you have the all new Dragon-Blocker 2.0... lucky little guy....

Oh and yes, the little dudes aren't supposed to speak speak...they mumble...it's cuter.

PS: In case it was hard to hear: The dragon after being shot at says "Pathetic human" lol

@03:00Ha ha, I love this; I've always liked clay-mation and I've always liked little fellows who mumble, especially if they're knights.

@03:00Haha yeah, if you give them voices it takes away from the whole experience. I had to do a few audio trys to see what worked best. Clay-mation is the best!

Clay-mation is indeed pretty great. My only problem with it is that good puppets, especially distinctive ones, are hard to model without detracting from mobility- at least, that's me speaking as an amateur. Thus, I wickedly cheat and use Lego men. :lol:

hahaha. Lego men are great! What I did was put a styrofoam ball on a tooth pick for the head and molded clay over it, so turning the heads were easy. The arms were just clay so over time they got harder to mold, but hey it worked. That's why the dragon was made of tin foil :)

Hey, that's pretty smart. What kind of clay did you use? I made the mistake of using basic modeling clay, which is plenty soft but doesn't allow for much consistent movement or decent modeling.

On that note, I watched the video over and noticed just how much detail went into the armor, not to mention the dragon. Very realistic!

hmm...I think I used a simple kind of modeling clay... one where it never hardens and makes your hands feel all ew after haha. The figures were about as big as the palm of my hand and the head was a styrofoam ball coated with clay to keep the shape and allow for easy movement. You could also do that with the body as well, and I very weak wire may help with limbs. The dragon was tinfoil and glue gun. Thanks, and thanks for the comment!

Hm, sounds similar to what I used. I think I used Rose Art, which certainly doesn't dry out and definitely leaves a light residue on the fingers. I never thought it could be modeled so well, but I guess it can be with work.

You're welcome, and thanks a lot for the great tips!
