It seems to me like masking has the most potential for good jumping. Watch Ninja Thief by egoless productions to see what I’m talking about.

I usually make them jump by a wall or something so I can use a little peice of that sticky blue stuff to make them stay there for the picture. It works pretty good! I also use a technique I like to call rewinding, which is basically the same as throwing the lego guy but instead you drop him so he does the exact oppisite of what you want him to do and then you split the clip a whole bunch of times and rearrange it backwards so it looks like he is jumping.

In the wrestling match, I used the clear plastic boom that came w/ the lego studios sets (in my case, spiderman). Then I used paint to cover it up w/ parts of the background.

in my series i am currently working on i have to use the toss it up technique to make it look like the ships are actually airborne and not computer generated………
and sometimes on planetsurfaces i just run an extra cable outside for my cam and record using a self constructed flight rig(1/4 inch steel pipe does wonders for movement) it allows the ships to fly without being seen on the camera via fishing line and old guitar strings…

you will need to spray the lines an opaque dusted type color to reduce glare……
then you attach them to the ship………………………
