Animation Stand Upgrade

April 17, 2004
The old Neilson Hordell has never looked better! I got ahold of a fantastic Bessler M3 copy stand and merged it with the Neilson, now it’s more stable and has an awsome 7 foot camera track with smooth movement! The bessler also came with a full set of lights including a backlight which perfectly fits inside the Neilson base.All that’s left now is putting new handles on a few of the cranks, but stand is operational as-is.
