Hey. I'm working on a project. I would love some advice on some things!
"A preview of my newest claymation project.
Two mischievous turtles get carried away playing pranks.
Background music is a clip from one of my original song recordings.
I used this song only for the preview, the final version will have full dialogue, and include new music as well.
These turtles have more pranks to pull..."
I guess my biggest question would be how to fix (or avoid getting) dirty or distorted clay.
I'm not sure how noticeable it is, but the turtles in the first scene are a lot cleaner and smoother looking than in the later.
Some time had passed by before I shot the last scene and the clay had accumulated dirt. They also get pretty messed up if I have to move them around a lot.
The clay smears and I spend a lot of time trying to fix and clean them. They never really quite go back to normal.
I have many more plans for these turtles! I'm willing to rebuild them if I have to, but I certainly don't want to have to keep doing that.
If you want to talk about it on your broadcast I'll try my best to be there when you stream it!
Nice to meet you Lukas! Clay animation is a really good way to bring all those different forms of art into one final piece. Ray Harryhausen was also a jack of all trades like you. He could draw, paint and was heavily into mythology. It seems to be a trait of most stop motion animators, you should fit right in
