Maker of cinematic toy animations for over twenty years
Damon grew up outside Boston, MA. and studied film at Emerson college in Boston's Back Bay in the early 1990s.
His experimental toy animation videos caught the attention of MIT professor Henry Jenkins, who wrote about them in his book, Convergence Culture, as an example of fans parodying Hollywood with its own merchandise.

Damon's first professional job making video content was for Hasbro, making Star Wars videos for their website, mimicking the cinematography and effects shot-for-shot with a micro budget using puppetry techniques. https://youtu.be/a7F2g8DHdHI
Damon's Hollywood dreams brought him to California, where he continued to make dozens of experimental toy animation videos at home, while learning from Academy Award winning effects masters at his day job working an an assistant at a practical effects house on films such as Hellboy, The Punisher, and Resident Evil 2.
His 2003 sci-fi parody, ALIEN 5², won best film at RadCon Film Festival in 2008.
In 2014, Damon continued his education, taking a character animation stop-motion class at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios in Burbank, CA. Damon took to this animation style and has made several more toy animation videos using stop-motion, developing his style and honing his skills.
He is currently working on a stop-motion animated music video.
