DIY Animation Stand June 9, 2015

DIY Animation Stand

DIY Animation Stand

DIY Animation Stand:
72 ” x36″x18″ steel freestanding shelving unit; custom cut glass; clamp lights.
You can get the shelving unit at pretty much any hardware store. The Center pane isn’t adjustable, but you can customize the height of the others. Acquiring the glass is a bit more challenging.  Attempting to cut it yourself from a storm window will inevitably end in an uncomfortable amount of blood and several tears.  Find a glass shop that can supply the glass and cut the pieces for you.  I’m using 3/16″ thick clear, tempered panes.
Another tip: Use a circular polarizing filter to shoot.  It will save you a headache from dealing with reflections.  I’m using the Hoya Pro1 Circular PL.
