The latest animation challenge on BIM is growing a plant. It is loosely based off of an old story about a man named Jack. I just made my entry today and here are two stills for it. Here it is link.
This is the contraption I used to hold the vine that grows from the ground. It was made with three castle tower pieces, one hinged piece, and two of those rod things.
This is how I had the vine come out of the ground. I built the platform, with a middle row of studs, off the ground. It is held up by four pillars. I also had to raise my camera and the backdrop.
