Cissie and Dragonframe

Looking for animation software. This is a free trial test of Dragonframe – hence the watermark. The free trial only allows 50 frames per clip… so I’ve looped it in order for it to last more than a blink of an eye because Vimeo is not happy with blinks of an eye as uploads.

This is a trial run for Cissie herself of course. How is she doing?

PS. I’m going with Dragonframe as my software.

Puppets: The Horse

stop motion puppets: doll and wire horse

A Western gal needs a hoss.

It is taking ages. First there is the wire frame.

Next I build up the body shape with foam.

And smooth it over with wadding.

What kind of animal is emerging? There is much head clutching at this point. Do not take this as a masterclass in puppet building. It is more a desperate stab in the dark.

A Bit Late but Merry Christmas

One of my first stopmotions. I haven’t got any better! I hope your holidays are as happy as can be in these strange times.
