Well, this was a bit of a step up from a paper-cut:
Whilst attempting to adjust a grip-stand (sort of like a tripod, except they hold on to things) in the studio this afternoon I was concentrating on loosening a tight lever and, in a stroke of pure genius, forgot to hold on to the top part of the stand which then crashed down rather promptly on and pinched one of my fingers. It`s swollen and blue, and a bit cold from ice/frozen chicken, and I probably won`t be animating any more of this weekend, but it could have been worse.
Stop-motion animation, needless to say, comes with a whole new terrain of safety issues.
