not only awesome but you take the work of helping others.
didn't like JUST the lights on and off in the first time. But doesnt even deserve -0,5

This is great,

The black monster reminds me a bit of the grasshopper monster from "The Naked Lunch" film directed by David C., your film also shares the same kind of surrealistic black humour.

I like the unique character design, the medium used, and the smooth (albeit minimal) animation.
The writing is great, and the voice actors all did a fantastic job, my only complaint is I just wish it was longer, on the other hand it ended perfectly, and I'm not sure what else you could have added.

Regardless, this one is going into my favourites!

what a wonderfull claymation!
i havent seen one for years, and a good one, more likely!
this one is GREAT! how long did it took for u to create this piece?

also, what type of camera did you used, and what program? im really curious, because i experiment with clay, so sorry if i ask so many questions.

that was great, and i liked the whole details from the thunder black and white of the image (like blinking), to the beady eyes of the alien, i really wonder how did you made the black on and off, for the thunder effect, it was cool...(it's ok if you dont want to tell)

tho, the animation was fun, and cool, the characters VERY well-done, and quite complicated, and the story overall was good.

even the lipsyncing was great, i bet that this was r. hard. it is.

so, do more, you rock!
great stuff, right here!

This piece was about a years worth of work on and off. I used a canon 60D to shoot and work in a program called Dragon Frame. The flickering you're referring to was done by putting pieces of cardboard in front of one of my lights (I had 3 total) and taking a frame and just mixing up where the cardboard was. The puppets aren't actually clay but casted in silicone with ball and socket armatures inside (a pain in the ass). Lipsyncing isn't that hard if you have any experience with exposure sheets. You sculpt tiny mouths for each shape you make when speaking, and I put magnets in the back of the mouth, and a tiny magnet on the face where the mouth goes. Im glad you can appreciate this though! Thank you for the review, let me know if you have any more questions, I know a lot of great youtube videos regarding Stop Motion.

You have to keep making more.
I want to see the adventures of our homeless hero in purgatory!
