Private Project

Glasnost of the Third Kind

I was unemployed and fell in with another person at the unemployment office who turned out to be a pathological liar and claimed to be Russian and later ex-KGB. We batted around ideas for a video game about aliens behind the iron curtain. Then when the time came to do the real work he disappeared. First into drug induced sleep on my couch and then just off somewhere else. The footage that became this animation was created by me in his absence. Therefore no writing credit for the fake spy. Also more of a preview than a real story arc. It is what it is.

Director Statement

Stop Motion Animation is the red haired step child of animation education. By and large, stop motion is just not being taught in animation programs. I do everything I can to change that.
