Yeah, I'm, uh, new. I wasn't sure where on the internet could I ask this question, so if there's a more appropriate place to post this, could any of you provide me a link?
I'm taking a claymation class in high school, and I'm actually quite nervous about it. It's even more significantly different than traditional animation than I imagined. I don't even know how to do character designs and storyboards properly, because now I have to think also in terms of what I can do with my team's time (semester ends near the end of January), our budget (which, in typical high school fashion, is pretty much zero ), and with clay, which is pretty thick and therefore clashes with my typical skinny-armed characters. I'm excited for the class, but at the same time I'm not really sure what potential I have with the medium.
Basically, do any of you have any good blogs, books, DVDs with special features... Anything that will help me with my class? Anything would be appreciated.
