Episode 1 Preview




We now have more of Episode 1 of our stop-motion animated web series to show you. This takes us up to shot 34 out of a total of 50 for this first installment, so we're slowly getting there. As you might assume from watching the film, I had to use a variety of support systems to "fly" the characters around, but for practical reasons decided against hanging them from wires connected to an overhead gantry, so the scout ship, FE and the bugs were attached to floor-based rigs for all their scenes.
Everyone who has worked on this is keen to hear some feedback, so please let us know what you think of it so far.
