Merlin Crossingham is an animation director who has worked at Aardman animations for the last 12 years on films such as Chicken Run and Curse of the Were Rabbit. Stop motion animation can be a time consuming and fiddly process but one that can yield stunning results. Merlin takes you through some dos and don'ts with the help of some of Aardman's plasticine creations. Once you've watched it, it's your turn to give it a go.
