Very nice! I always (most of the time) love your videos. I was even thinking of trying to make a stop motion myself. Where do you get the character models?
Now THAT'S a real nightmare scenario!
(bet "Wire Removal" could fix the hair...)
The figures are Mega Construx which, in the UK, you can only get from ebay, US Amazon and, if you're lucky, UK Amazon. They're 2" high (about 5-6 cm) and, for their size, really well articulated. I could use Lego but, for me, they suit my videos better.
The usual way is to use rig removal if you have a suitable clean plate frame. It's so time consuming though if it's over multiple frames. I guess you could track the hair and use wire removal though. I nearly used a camera nudge as the thing that goes wrong but, when I thought about it, an unnoticed hair is a much bigger problem.
