"Pick up your camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister stars in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee." ~ James Cameron

Clay. Cardboard Box. Camera.

Ok ok you might be thinking it is a bit dodgy...yes it most definitely is...but I wanted to try it... so I did!

My First Claymation Attempt

So I started making little films here and there from the time that I became a teenager. I found some images from my first few films and I thought I’d base this post on my one and only attempt (so far) on CLAYMATION!

Nothing fancy…just me wanting to give it a go…

1. I was using bad quality cameras…but this didn’t stop me from making a film! Any camera can tell a story!

2. I was still experimenting with camera angles…although I was filming randomly shaped clay figurines in a painted cardboard box.

3. I’m obviously not an artist when it comes to claymation…but it was a really fun experience that taught me a lot!…especially about patience!

These images can be an inspiration to other aspiring filmmakers….

….because just like me…you don’t need the highest tech to start somewhere. All that matters is that you start!

If you are a wanting to make films...give claymation a shot. After you try to make a film like this you will have so much more appreciation for people who do it really well. Film makers who do claymation professionally are incredible!
