It has been long enough now that the stop mo bug has hit once again. I spent some time looking for animation and video contests. I found one that is witter theme that needs to be between 20 second and 3 minutes 16 seconds. I can totally do that so I decided to do that. At work I have been doing well emnough that I have gotten several monetary awards. They com0e in the form of gift cards. I thought I spent it all on holiday presents, but I checked yesterday and I had a fiarly large balance still. So I got a gift card for Amazon and got myself a camera. Basically for free. It will be pretty much on parr with the other camera I had...it wasn't THAT much. But it will work better than the cracked iPad. It will get here Thursday, so I guess we will see then.
After some thought I have tentatively settled on the theme of a groundhog who can't sleep. His buddies are all hybernating, so he will have to amuse himself. II was goingto start making head mock ups for him today, but I ran out of aluminum foil, which is hat I use for the base. Tomorrow I will go get some and start trying ddifferent styles till I find one that will work. I have decided to use replacemjent animation for the ehads. I have b\never done that before, so this should be interesting. II am excited to get this started.
