This Claymation is a very good example of just how easy a Claymation can be to create. It uses simple but effective uses of the clay. The maker of this Claymation has used simple shapes like a tap, some clay balls, a plane and some harder shapes like a teapot. Although there is no storyline to the Claymation it keeps you interested and makes you want to keep watching it to the very last frame. The transition between frames and pictures is pretty good but some flaws of this is you can see some of the shadows from his/her hand and some of the lighting becomes brighter and darker from time to time. Although there are some flaws in the lighting and shadows the general movement of the shapes a very good.

The use of space in the Claymation has been used well, some shots have been shot from close and some have been shot from further away. I thought this Claymation was a very useful and good example of an easy but effective way to use clay and create a Claymation
