My set

Here is a photo of my outside scene set. I just finished shooting for a month on this set and now have to shoot the interior shots. I made a second set so I could leave this one set up while I work on the inside shots. Two stages really helps me build one while filming on the other. It helps minimize my down time. The photo was taken after I had taken it outside so before you ask I do not shoot outside. All my filming is done inside. http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/dc/user_files/4372.jpg

I think the set looks great and can't wait to see the animation. I just have one problem with it, I think the stop motion puppet on the left of the photo is a bit large for the scale of the set. Is he a KONG type of character coming to eat the little people? Don't get me wrong, he appears to be a very realistic and handsome puppet, well made! If he is goinig to terrorize the smaller folks, why is he smiling? :P

... It's an evil smile... a "cat who ate the canary" kind of smile.... note there are no puppets left on the set..... :9

Didn't you guys get your "Harryhausen" look-alike contest invitations? I thought we all were invited. Hmmm....kinda curious... You think I look out of place on that set, the first thing I did when I placed it outside was watch the cats eye it up for a nap spot. I had to hide it in the tool shed to keep kitty kong from napping on my stage. The puppets really would not have liked that.
