Stop Motion Animation Book Trailers

Earlier we blogged about creating some stop motion animations. We have created two more since that time. Both feature a character from Dime Store Novel named Whiskey Joe. The first was a screen test that shows him playing harmonica and dancing a bit of a riff. It's very short, but it will give you an idea of what how he can move.

The second tells a little love story that may or may not appear in one of the future Dime Store Novels. This animation is a little longer and uses a mix of Claymation and paper animation. It was really a challenge to work with the scale of the characters.

We had so much fun creating these animations that we have decided to create some book trailers using Whiskey Joe as the spokesperson for the series. Look for the first one sometime this summer.
