Hi, I'm new to the stop motion and Wallace and Gromit even though I have been around for a long time (I'm old). Chicken Run opened my eyes to this great artform and although I'm into CG animation, I've decided to dabble in Claymation as I love hands on modeling rather than constructing something in the ether of 3D space....

Although the DVDs have great information about the making of the movies, has any thought been given to something with more detail specifically on making clay models for animation from scratch?



PS - Whats the deal with the 'Your Creations' and Competitions? Are there rules or themes or is it just anything goes?

hi david

buy the book called cracking animation lots of tips in there. (make sure you buy the blue cover version) lots of people make animations & models on here including me.

the creation of the month copetion is a competion where you enter a drawing of wallace and gromit anything aniamtion related (aardman related too) or make your own characters and sets which you can also enter. Nick Park chooses the winner and 3 runners up each month. you geta certificate and prizes.

Hmmm... Whats the difference between Cracking Animation and Creating 3-D Animation. Amazon lists both with the same cover design (different title), same authors, same publishing date, same number of pages?
