the cameras probly are something like £30,000+

jordan Posted: Jun 30th 2008

It will probably be something similar to what was used on Tim Burtons Corpse Bride Film I don't think they were that expensive http://www.stopmotionworks.com/articles/cbrdstrpdbare.htm

Hi All:D


cinders1 Posted: Jul 13th 2008

cavor Posted: Jul 15th 2008

Sorry been busy with life, maybe I will have to do a picture of W & G at the seaside .....if I get time.

I hope conty enjoys his little Music excursion:D


cinders1 Posted: Jul 16th 2008

he did text me yesterday, sounds like hes having a good time, but i cant wait for him to get home |-) a drawing on the beach sounds good;)
by the way i picked contys brains and the cameras are no where near as expensive as jordan suggests;)


jordan Posted: Jul 16th 2008

£1.00-£6000

£495+


cinders1 Posted: Jul 16th 2008

im sure aardmans will announce what camera they are using when they are ready;)


jordan Posted: Jul 16th 2008

DSLR Stills camera? with the SFH-30 milo rig


jordan Posted: Jul 16th 2008

they say they prefer the big films on 35mm mitchell cameras


;)


jordan Posted: Jul 16th 2008

Canon DLSR

I've managed to find out from the super-duper people in our Production Technology Department:

Canon EOS 1D MkIII cameras with Zeiss and Nikon prime lenses.
The cameras are roughly £2.5k without lens.

Hope that helps!



jordan Posted: Jul 17th 2008

yippie i was right somehow


cavor Posted: Jul 17th 2008

The same cameras as Tim Burtons production crew used in the Corpse Bride then:D

There is some interesting tech info about it on the SMP website: http://www.stopmotionpro.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=165&Itemid=9


cinders1 Posted: Sep 24th 2008

nice link jills, and a lovely pic of ross, hes such a lovely bloke;) the video should be put on this site. it would be great for the beginners|-)


jills Posted: Sep 24th 2008

I think I should put that on general chat, perhaps, you're right, cinders1, it would likely be useful for quite a few people.


plasjas Posted: Sep 25th 2008

i thought they still used 35mm mitchell cameras


jills Posted: Sep 25th 2008

There seems to be some conflicting information... but it sounds like it's all digital..?


cinders1 Posted: Sep 26th 2008

it is jills, ive seen the camera|-)


jills Posted: Sep 26th 2008

So they are not producing a "film" at all?


cinders1 Posted: Sep 26th 2008

hehe.. i suppose not;)


jills Posted: Sep 26th 2008

So much for AMOLAD collector film cells then :O
