DIY Stop Motion Wire Armature

One of the most requested posts for us to do is a 'how to' wire armature.  I decided that video-form was the best way to explain the process.

[Note] ii'm going to state that a wire armature is not the most efficient way to build an armature, a ball-and-socket armature is by far the best best way to execute motion with a Stop Motion puppet, but to build one takes so much more time and is very expensive.  But hopefully in the near future I can do a ball-and-socket armature tutorial.
