How To Make A Puppet Film in Your Garage

Squirrel Island creator Astrid Goldsmith's presentation on "Alternative Methods of Animation Film Production" speaks to the soul of the traditional stop-motion animator. Goldmsith is engaging and candid as she examines her working process from storyboarding to animating and editing outside of a traditional modern studio set-up; the importance of collaboration; and finding alternative sources of funding and distribution. 

If you haven't yet seen Squirrel Island, be sure to check out Goldmsith's Kickstarter success story seven years in the making.  It's a stop-motion sci-fi action thriller about squirrel apartheid. "When a lone renegade grey squirrel and a hunted acorn find themselves trapped on a hostile and mysterious red squirrel island, they uncover a horrifying plot that threatens their future." It was shot on 16mm with a 1969 Bolex in Astrid's garage in Folkestone. Since completion in 2016, it has won several awards, was BAFTA long-listed and has been shortlisted for best animated film at many international film festivals.

What's Inside my Dollhead?

Uploaded by YouTuber dinaa amin

Designer/Animator dina Amin from Cairo, Egypt recently shared the latest in her imaginative and provocative Tinker Friday series with Stop Motion Planet.  

"Tinker Friday is a series of stop motion animations I started on Instagram in 2016," says Amin. "As a product designer I loved creating products but I hated how most of the things we produce end up being thrown away, so I accidentally started this series where I take a random 'thrown away' product apart, on Fridays, animate it and show people what's inside it in an unusual way. I made over 30 videos since then and this is how I taught myself stop motion animation.

"Hope you enjoy watching the things I see inside my head...and inside my dolls head!"
