Sam's garage needs cleaning...

Published on Jun 9, 2013

This is a short stop motion film set in a 1/10 scale diorama I have built. The main character is a Sam Fisher action figure from the Splinter Cell games. It's a simple little story of him moving into his new house and setting up his garage.
My main interest is building scale radio control off road vehicles. This project started as a bit of a side interest to be used to display my 4x4 builds, but has quickly taken prime position of my projects and has taken on a whirlwind life of its own! 
Except for a handful of items, I have built everything myself from scratch using modeling plastic, wood and some everyday household items. Stop motion is a great way to express ideas that may not otherwise be possible on a low budget in film. This is my first real stop motion and I have to say....I'm hooked!!
The stills were taken with a Nikon D3100 and it was produced using iMovie. It took around 15 hours to produce the two and a half minute film.

You can see the build of the diorama on several RC forum sites:
