A few resources

Hello Gavin,

Here are a few websites you may want to peruse. These are in no particular order.

www.animateclay.com
www.stopmotionanimation.com
www.stopmoshorts.com
www.stopmotionworks.com

A few other websites not specifically geared to stop motion, but they are a great place to learn about other techniques and animation in general.

www.3dtotal.com
www.fpsmagazine.com (nominal fee)
www.cgchannel.com

A couple of books you may want to consider:

"The Animator's Survival Kit: A Manual of Methods, Principles, and Formulas for Classical, Computer, Games, Stop Motion, and Internet Animators" by Richard Williams

"Encyclopedia of Animation Techniques" by Richard Taylor

This list is by no means comprehensive, but it is a good start.

Hope this helps!
