Claymation

As a child of the '80's, I must say that I miss claymation.
It seems as if nowadays everything is computerized and it just bugs me.
Anyone watch Gumby or the California Raisons? 'Even Sesame Street had a bit of claymation in it. I miss it, and I wish it would be brought back. Just a thought.

Way back in the day (mid 80s) when I was in 8th grade, we had a project to produce a movie. My group used quite a bit of stop-motion animation with both clay and toys to make a really charming movie. Never had so much fun in my life.....

They still make Claymation, Like the recently released Wallace & Gromit and the Curse of the Hare Rabbit, Or how about KnoxKorner, They make Claymation.

Claymation is the way to go -- I was introduced to stop motion animation through my high school art club, and actually going through the motions of making a minute long claymation makes one truly appriciate the amount of time that it takes to make something decent.

Movies like a Nightmare Before Christmas and Wallace and Grommit are some of my favorites, and even thoguh 3D Animation is an interesting new venue in the movie industry it's a bit disheartening to see traditional animation and claymation left behind in the wake of this new wave of animation.

However, I still do enjoy stop motion and clymation, especially now that websites like youtube and google video upload tons of good stuff. I actually watched some awesome 80s claymation by the Borthers Quay rather recently thanks to these video hosts.

I know, Hein? 3D Animation doesnt come close to Traditional. In Traditional animation, The Artist would take the time to make nice detailed backgrounds on a Matte. In 3D you don't really get the same effect. It looks more realistic, But still doesnt look that great.

In 6th Grade, my class did a similar thing, but I didn't get to because the substitute teacher hated me. I have never done claymation myself. I like the Wallace and Gromit series.

I'd love to make a claymation video.
So easy to do and the actors are real cheap. Smile
Only problem, it must take hours to get one minute of video. You would need a lot of patience.
