Missing opportunities

I'm pretty livid that i missed the sign up sheet for the Stop Frame Motion Workshop tomorrow morning. Either way i have to wait for a cheque to come also so will be spending my morning by the door listening for the door bell as i am, i swear, deaf.

I'm hoping maybe someone will share their knowledge with me or hopefully there will be another work shop, if not have to find it out the hard way and do it myself. Which might be the best option even though i'm slow it will be done quicker.

In the email sent by my tutor, sharon has attach a video with an example of a Stop Frame Motion video and it's really good, so here it is.

You might already seen this, but i feel ashamed to say, even working in a music shop and this video having 21,136,933 i have never ever heard of Oren Lavie. Sorry.
What i really like about this video is how when she is on the bed walking she really looks like she is walking. Also when it's meant to be underwater, i think with animation what makes it effective is the smallest movements and expressions, the little socks move just like fishes in the subtlest way.

I just came across this as well browsing on youtube which i think is very good for someone doing it in third year. I hope i will be as talented then as this guy!

This, is probably at the moment my favourite Stop Frame Motion animation.. Marcel the Shell with Shoes on. Genius idea, also very imaginative, which definitely needs to have for anything to be good. I'm not sure how the mouth is animated i reckon it is rotoscoped.
I believe audio is also a big point in animation, if you have crap audio it can ruin a animation sequence.
This is a key point i want to the sequence i make, like Marcels voice and the person asking questions voice has a delightfulness.

If you enjoyed the first one, here is the second one for your enjoyment.

Also as you can see on this still marcel is sitting on the keys, the little things in this video are amazing. On the screen you will see as the shell is on the key z the page going zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
such a nice little added gesture.

My car is a bug.
