  1. For the filming there was no plan to animate it. It was planned as a sideprop for additional detail. But based on the way I built it you could use stop motion to animate it. All the joints work and hold their position well. If I can find some time I might have a go at animating it for fun.

  2. How does it work in-film? Stop motion?

  3. Fantasmic!

  4. Brilliant!

  5. Very cool looking, but it doesn’t look functional. :-/

  6. interesting idea, I am really impressed by the simplicity of some of the material used here.

    Well done
