We had just started the Special Effects module and we are looking at video composting and I came across this awesome guy called Freddie Wong who does special effects in videos and seems to be quite and expert in composting and tracking. Below is one of the videos that I really liked.

To create 2 of my projects (Painting and Eye Box) I will need to move an eye (or 2) using servos. I done some research on 2 different methods to achieve this, the 2-Axis Gimble and a Universal Joint. I decided to try using the Gimble method. The reason for this is because it seemed the easier of the two for me to create as the universal joint requires more materials for me to obtain whereas the gimble I can make using the polymorph plastic.
ok after my post of facebook asking if anyone wanted a website i had 4 replys
1 someone i know wants to set up them selfs as a younge activey trailer and wants a website
another a gaming forum comuity and one guy wants me to design his portfolio
the last was a friend of a friend whos mum is is a singer and wants to promoto her self
that last one sounds promising im going to get her number and see if i can call her
For 2 of my projects I will need to use an eye that I can attach to servos and move. To start off I used a dolls eye as it was already made and looked realistic. Then I just needed to make a backing for the eye so that it can be attached to the servo and I wont need to damage or make holes in the eye itself. For this I used something called Polymorph plastic which is tiny little plastic beads that when you place them in hot water then soften to a putty like state and can be molded into any shape or form and when cooled down becomes solid again. This is extremely useful for building projects like mine.
I created a backing on the eye that is almost a rounded cone shape and has a hole going down the middle vertically so that it can be attached to the gimble using a metal rod.
Here are some development images.
