My First Stop Motion - Clay Animation


New member
Hey there,

I’m new to these Forums and Stop Motion in general.
Here to get some of your opinions, on a small test.

Basically i recently developed an interest in Stop Motion Animation, so i thought i’d try my hand at a Clay Animation.
It’s very short, being my first attempt i was mainly trying to get a bit of basic experience and feedback, before undertaking a larger project.
It took about 2 weeks from start to finish.

I used a Traveler HD 10XI 5.0 Megapixel Camcorder w/ 10x Optical Zoom.
-Adobe AfterFX for Green Screen footage / Burnout effect
-Adobe Premiere for Overall construction / Simple Transitioning.
(This was also my first time using both of these programs.)

You can view it here;

Hit me up on YouTube if you like it, or have something to say in general.
Much appreciated.

I thought it would be better to do a short test style project, then get feedback to then spend more time on a larger project keeping the feedback in mind.

I probably still should have made it longer though, i can see how it's hard to give an opinion on something around the 10 second mark.

It's really short, but from the looks of it (lighting, lack of jitter, feel) it looks like it has potential. Unlike yours a bunch of Claymations on youtube are really jumpy and hard to follow.
Good luck if you decide to do a longer project.

That's a great start, man and really good for a first go 'round. Reminds me of Tool's first music video, really.
Keep rockin', man. Have fun.
