The Festival Stop Motion Montréal is coming soon, and today his founder is hosting a live conference in his studio, about stop motion ball-and-socket armatures:
“Have you ever wondered what lies beneath and enables stop motion puppets to articulate with smooth, lifelike movements?
Join us LIVE on Monday with master armature-maker and Festival founder Erik Goulet, as he constructs what is essentially the skeleton of a stop motion puppet, a ball-and-socket armature!
Erik will explain the steps along the way as he builds a beautiful, moveable armature that will shine on as one of the Festival’s iconic trophy awards this year, live from his home studio.
**Set your alarm and enable notifications to catch Erik’s take over on the Festival’s Facebook account Monday, August 3rd at 1:00pm (local Montreal time, EDT) and learn from the skilled armature maker behind puppets you may have seen featured in NFB films such as I, Barnabé by Jean-Francois Levesque, Nadine by Patrick Peris Filmmaker, Freaks of Nurture from Alexandra Lemay, Mark Osborne’s renowned The Little Prince Movie and more!”
