    I just tried again. Still says that I need to click the activation code. Can someone else sign up for me, then give me the password? I’ll turn off the message alerts – I can check them manually.

    Well, I haven’t been here in a while (I’m back in school).

    A cool way to film this would be to film parts of the footage as if it was recorded on a webcam the animator is using during Thac. (I got this idea after seeing Cloverfield). This method has been used in Lewis Chen’s Mediocre Hour series brickfilms, right here.

    Maybe an animator forgets to turn his camera off after he finishes Thac, or he takes the camera with him and records the end of the world. This is just an idea to throw out there.

    Ok, was it you that has the account called Badger? I could delete your old account and start a new one, if that’s OK with you, Hazzat. No one else on the forum has had problems with registering. I wonder why you’re the only one having problems? :monkey:

    I’m Badger. I tried signing up with Badgerboy earlier, and it didn’t work, so I went with Badger.

    The problem with that is that webcams can only filmed when plugged in. You’d need one hell of a long wire.

    Who says you actually need to use a webcam? You can just use a digital camera and then pretend it’s a webcam. It’s not like it’s going to capture itself on tape.

    Not to mention a complete idiot who wouldn’t notice it. Maybe a camcorder would work better.

    Yeah I was think more along the lines of a digital camera. That’s what I use. Has anyone seen Cloverfield? (It’s somewhat recent). Here is a trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufYF0f-zMgY. I got the idea of a person recording the events of the end of the world from that.

    Actually filming stop-motion in first person would probably be very hard. I have tried it before with my digital camera but the picture gets blurry. Can webcams get very close to what you’re animating without going out of focus?

    I animate with a camcorder, but it’s not great. Webcams can set really close to what you’re animating while staying in focus.
