I won't even lie to you, this is HEAVILY influenced by Tool's "Prison Sex" video. Go check it out, and you'll see what I mean. XD It's my favorite of the two fully stop-motion videos they've done (that I've seen) and the song was so relevant to Sean's character, it's scary. I was seriously crushing on this song a few weeks back, so when I got the chance to do a "gif animation with photos," I jumped on the opportunity. This is more of an homage to that video, and a test to see if I could play around in a similar way to it than anything else. : ]

Here's my crowning glory of a stop-motion piece. XD It's definitely not as great as it could be, but it was just me dicking around with a couple of ideas.
I had just bought these kewpies when I got the assignment, I had the face mask of Sean I sculpted out of kneaded eraser from a month ago, gathering dust, I saw the wig head on my shelf... and this is what came of it.

I built Sean a body out of pipe cleaners, had to reinforce it with heavier gauge wire, because the head was so heavy. The set is just a cardboard box opened up... The lights are from the overhead lamp, my blacklight, and an LED flashlight.

I knew I wanted kewpies being creepy, and climbing on him, and him climbing on this wig head like some sort of monumental statue in ruins. It turned out... sorta like that. XD Though he ended up humping and caressing the head and such, I DON'T KNOW.
I KNOW IT LOOKS LIKE I CAME UP WITH THIS WHILE ON DRUGS. SCARY THING IS, I DIDN'T. XD

It was definitely an adventure and a struggle. He can't stand, and his head kept falling off, and he wouldn't hold poses, especially on that damn head. XD But, doing this was a TON of fun, and I definitely want to go back and make a better Sean model now and see what else I can do.

It took me only about 2 hours to make Sean's body, set everything up, and shoot it all, but much longer in photoshop compiling, and also altering colors so they looked better. NEVER using the dim lights in the house again as a light source, that's for sure. XD

Anyway, hope you like it, and hope this actually works!
