The Protagonist

This figure was developed as an experiment in stop motion animation. When I was young, it was my ambition to become an animator, so I felt it was time to take a stab at producing a small film. The result was considerable time spent (happily) developing the linkages necessary to build armatures such as this one, but regrettably I found I did not have the temperament for the actual frame by frame capture required to see the experiment through.
