Stop motion graveyard set for sale
I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm selling my degree show set, which is based upon Neil Gaimans 'The Graveyard Book'
I hand built it all myself and it now needs a home where it will be used and appreciated!
Heres the link on to the page:

Very nice model work! So, you did your graduate film with it? Will we be able to see it one day? Or does the fact that it is based on a copyright work restrict how it can be shown? (You could contact Neil Gaiman via his website and ask permission, but these days the rights to his books are being bought by major studios. I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear a feature film is on the way.)
You are in the UK - so it's really only practical for someone who is also based there. (There are a few members in the UK, but I'm in Australia, and the vast majority are in the US.) And someone who happens to want something similar fairly soon...
What is the scale? That is probably a major factor in whether it suits someone or not.
I have a story idea where it would suit, but I'm much too far away to collect it or consider shipping it. But if I were in the UK I would need to know if it suits my size of puppets or not.
I don't doubt the value, based on the work you put into it. I'd expect to pay more to have a set built to my design, when I needed it for my film. But you would have to be exceptionally lucky to find someone who needs it before time runs out, and can pay for it. I've had to trash many sets at the end of production, to make room for the next one, and it's tragic. I wish you luck.
