GEORGE by Stopmotion Engineering is the first professional stop-motion animation puppet armature which is made from most advanced composite material technology and assures high-end animation projects.
Italy-based innovative product design company, Stopmotion Engineering, just launched the world’s only professional Carbon Fiber & Titanium Armature on Kickstarter. Titled “GEORGE,” the next-gen armature promises state-of-the-art animation projects that will leave the audience in awe.
GEORGE 2020 is developed to address the pain points experienced by animators in developing stop-motion puppets for their animation projects. In this 2020 edition, many components have been introduced in GEORGE armatures, including Titanium, a precious material, which makes the armor even more resistant and light.
“A popular way of cinematic storytelling in recent years, stop-motion animation demands a flexible and durable puppet. And the armature of the skeleton is the most crucial aspect of a stop-motion cinematic project. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with mediocre armatures that make it hard for animators to come up with a stunning animation movie. They are usually made of steel, which makes them tough to move, which eventually leads to unnatural, artificial movements for the stop-motion puppet. But not anymore- our state-of-the-art GEORGE will eliminate all these woes and allow you to create a strong, durable yet flexible puppet for winning stop-motion animation projects”, stated the founders of Stopmotion Engineering.
Developed primarily for professional stop-motion animation, GEORGE is made of unadulterated carbon fiber, titanium as well as stainless steel. It’s sturdy yet lightweight and uses the high-end technology of fixing materials that are deployed in the aeronautical industry to guarantee perfect credibility. Backed by the most advanced composite material technology, the armature assures excellent durability, incredible fluidity of movement and also ensures easy mobility over time and during filming.
“We have strategically used carbon fiber here because it’s a composite material which is 4x stronger than steel yet much lightweight. This way, with GEORGE, animators will get more flexibility without worrying about loss of movements after a few movements that we usually find with regular armatures.”
GEORGE’s upper torso is entirely made of carbon and comes in three versions- a base, an enhanced reinforced part for shoulder joints, and another one with a unique dynamic neck. The company has used an advanced rapid attachment system for the neck and limbs of the armature. It will enable animators to create various heads, feet, and hands while maintaining the same body. GEORGE assures easy removal and replacement of limbs.
“GEORGE is something that all animators have been looking for long to create cutting-edge animation projects. We are looking for mass production now, and we aim to distribute our advanced armature to as many animators as possible around the world. But, such a high-end development demands robust financial backup and hence this Kickstarter campaign. Your generous support will enable us to bring GEORGE to life and transcend the current stop-motion animation industry to newer heights.”
Backers will be rewarded with handy discounts on GEORGE packs.
