Animation Supplies has been working with the double Oscar winning studio Se-ma-for to exclusively bring you a new range of pre-built armatures. The armatures are of exceptional quality and built to the highest standards, using the very best materials. Se-ma-for have an illustrious history for producing award winning stop motion and Animation Supplies are thrilled to have teamed up with them. Our partnership with Se-ma-for means that we now offer a wide range of puppet and set building services.
The new Animation Supplies range of ready-made studio armatures have been developed over a number of years and have been designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding animator. The specification and quality of the armatures represent extraordinary value for money. Each joint is precision made from stainless steel and a special secret alloy. This results in a strong, yet responsive joint which is capable of the most subtle of movements and is a real joy to animate with.
The great thing about buying a ready-made armature is that it is ready to animate straight out of the box. This gives you more time to concentrate on animating your masterpiece. Our studio armatures are available in three sizes small (15cm), medium (22cm) and large (30cm). If however these sizes or proportions are not suited to your character we also offer a bespoke armature service where we will design and build an armature to perfectly suit your character’s requirements. Our specialist team will work this you to produce a perfectly tailored armature, offering support and guidance throughout the process. Please view our bespoke armature servicepage for further information.
