After having seen celebrates Wallace and Gromit from Aardman studio I have tried small animations in modeling clay.
I use a digital camera for shooting, a computer to make the assembly, a card with a video output to record on cassette VHS. Today I'm putting films on CDR with SCVD or mini DVD format, for seeing it on my home dvd player.
You will find in the site some short examples in strongly compressed in AVI or MPG (if you want to see) and also some explanations on the realization.
If you need more information on clay animation visit my link page, you can also send an email.
