Issue#11 April 2011 Available Now!!!

Ok, I know your thinking"Wait thats the December Issue!", but it's the April 2011 Issue with the image of Will Fiesterman which was mistakenly put onto the December 2010 Cover...

So what did we do with the December Cover you ask? We'll we reposted it with Will Vinton on the Cover the way it should have been in the first place. It's only right to have the King of Claymation be on his own cover. There are however some pictures of Will Fiesterman in Will Vintons article, but thats unavoidable considering how few images we were allowed to use for Vintons Interview. Anyway......

Back to the Issue at hand. This issue (I mean the April 2011 Issue) has tons of great stuff in it and a very awesome interview with William Fiesterman. The guy is such a wealth of knowledge and experience. I really think he should have a memoir written.

I also would like to take the time to thank Don Carlson for a great beginners tutorial for lighting Clay Animation. We hope to keep Don around to write some more articles for us and not just tutorials. He's a fun guy to have around and we appreciate his contribution to the magazine.

There's much much more in the issue and instead of you reading this Blog Entry, I'll let you go so you can get to reading the latest issue.

Oh Yeah! Stop Motion Magazine is taking submissions for the 2011 Stop Mo Film Festival. So tell your friends!!!

Keep Animating

Pax Paint Tutorial is Now Available

Ok, its been a long time since we update the blog. There's a bunch of reasons for this so I'll give you the short list... Computer Failure, Tragic World Events that effected us, Payed Commercial Gigs that ate up the little time I personally had....

Good News!!! We are back in action! The video you see above is one that many many many people have been requesting of late. It's the basic tutorial on how to make and use PAX Paint in a brushing method. This video is the last in the Stop Motion Foam Latex Puppet Series.

There will however be more puppet making videos in the future. So keep an eye out for those. Also, some fun short films will be added.

So for now, checkout the video and start making some awesomely cool puppets!!!
