Looking for Pics of Stopmo Sets

Hey! I'm looking for pics of stopmo sets (and props) to introduce a group of students the art of setbuiling. They want to make a stopmo film and I'm sure some of you guys made cool sets and props or know somebody... What do you think was the best stopmo set ever? What is the coolest prop on earth? I'm curious, Greetings, Fraeulein A. P.S. Here you can see what other students did to avoid setbuiling. There are nice solutions I think. Have a look at their "Showreel" @ www.anna-gawrilow.de/trickfilmkurs.html

You don't have to look very far... There's a great street set in Erich Zann, and I really like the staircase! Also... Look at the 2 posts next to this one, from Darcy_P and Jriggity, with photos of their sets and setbuilding! I have some shots of finished sets, and sets being constucted, in my albums at www.picturetrail.com/hilligossnic. Some of those photos also appear at stopmoshorts. I always liked the theatre set in Steve Box's film Stagefright. And the street sets in Curse of the Were-Rabbit. But I also like the abstract approach in Balance.

The stage fright set is amazing. One of my favourites too.
