tODAY AT WORK, AT MCDONALD’S, THE TOILET IN THE GIRLS’ ROOM LIKE BLEW UP AND WAS BLASTING WATER LIKE A FIREHOSE NONSTOP AND IT FILLED LIKE A FOOT OF WATER THROUGH THE WHOLE JOINT AND WE HAD TO CLOSE AND THE NEW MANAGER, PACO, WHO BARELY SPEAKS ENGLISH WAS ON DUTY AND HE WAS INCOHERENTLY FREAKING OUT IN SPANISH AND EVERYONE WAS COOKING FOOD AND EATING AND MAKING JOKES AND SAYING “START BUILDING THE ARC” AND FROM THE BASEMENT STAIRS AS THE WATER RUSHED DOWN WE WERE LIKE “NEVER LET GO JACK” AND SINGING “MY HEART WILL GO ON”. AND, TYRONE POSTED A SIGN SAYIGN “SORRY, WE TURNED INTO A WATERPARK INSTEAD OF A RESTAURANT TODAY” AND THEN THIS LADY CAME IN AND SAID SHE “WANTED HER BURGER EVEN IF THEY HAD TO SHIP IT OVER ON A BOAT” AND OMG IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF WORK IN MY LIFE I’M DYING
I CAN’T UNDERSTAND FUCKING STOP-MOTION THOSE FINGERS SHOULD FALL RIGHT OFF BUT NO THEY SUPPORT THEMSELVES BEAUTIFULLY
WHAT THE ACTUALLY FUCK STOP MOTION
The fingers are being supported by armature wire. Virtually all stop motion puppets have some variety of this going on underneath it:
Given the proportions of Burton’s creations, the armatures underneath his puppets are probably custom-made.
What you’re also looking at is a ton of replacement animation on that teddy bear. Instead of actually tearing open the bear model, someone, or a few people, carefully crafted a handful of that specific bear at various stages of being cut open. If you look closely, the slab it’s on moves slightly, which gives itself away.
Also, Jack’s speaking is done through replacement animation.
Stop motion utterly fascinates me.
GOD BLESS YOU
THIS IS THE THING I DONT GET ABOUT STOP MOTION
YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY MOVE THE DOLLS WITH UR HANDS AND REPLACE THEIR FACES //HOW DO YOU KEEP THEM IN THE SAME SPOT??????//
stop motion people are crazy
