This is an animation I did for my Experimental Animation class at CCA. I made the squirrel puppet with construction paper and small brads. It has 18 moveable joints, but it could have used an extra joint in the torso so I could get better c curves. This is my first stop-motion piece I have ever done and I am pretty happy with how it came out. I spent quite a bit of time studying reference and planning out the actions. I timed everything out before-hand but ended up adjusting it slightly after I shot it. I used Digicel Flipbook for capture.
