Broken moulds and new sets

So, the original Skimpy's leg broke and I decided to recast. I did, but then the mould broke!

Also, my uncle made the interior set for the 3rd shot in the music video. I put all the finishing touches on it and it's just about ready to shoot.
Close up of door detail.
The first few shots are coming along nicely, and it seems like I might actually get this thing done pretty well. Slight hold up though; my computer was in desperate need of memory. So I had to order some. It seems to be running fine now. Plus, I entered Messin' with Skimpy in the Zeitgeist stop-motion contest. So I'll be finding out what's going on with that soon. And I heard through the Grapevine that good ol' Laika studios is gearing up for another feature. (Boy I'd like to get in on that.)
