"Amazing things can come from the junkyard."

Watch the MAKING OF video here!-->[link]

I did all the sets, puppets, animation, music (composition and performance, on POTS AND PANS!), voices (that's me barking and growling), sound effects, and editing, with a little technical assistance from my piano teacher (the incredible Mike Springer-->[link]) and my wonderful father. Plus my mother let me commandeer the dining room table. No class or anything; this was my own personal project.

It took an enormous amount of work and time (about 5 months), but I loved it! I plan to major in animation when I go to college, mostly with stop motion and other experimental media.

More about the puppets here:

This was so cute! The puppets and sets look very nice, and the score complemented the film perfectly. Well done! I liked the touch that the junkyard dog doesn't see in color.

Thanks very much! I've learned since then that dogs actually see a range of blues and yellows and not just grayscale...oh well haha, still glad that you picked up on it. :)

Any pointers for stop motion? My puppets are beanie babies so I don't have a lot of flexibility with their actions and I'm only just getting into it.

it helps to have a wire armature inside the puppet; that way they'll hold their positions better
