http://www.dimensionprinting.com/extr... Roy is character I have created for a stop-motion, live action film. Traditional Stop-motion films have had characters made from clay or other moldable materials. The drawback from this is that quality is very hard to achieve. My idea was to take the animated design and turn it into something that can be moved or positioned, yet not change its outward appearance when moved. Ideally, no more thumbprints on the side of a clay character, just a plastic animatable character.
Roy is the story of a robot that comes to life after he is drawn on a piece of paper. In the pre-film draft, Roy could only appear in the film through green-screen techniques. With the new printed action figure Roy, and soon-to-come Nero, a physical character in the film is possible.
Roy is capable of moving every direction a human can. This means that I am capable of animating him in real life for the movie. My vision for Roy over the next year is not just to create a movie, but to create an experience that makes viewers want to explore new methods of innovation.
