“I bought a camera and took a series of filmmaking bootcamp classes with Chicago Filmmakers. Then I gathered some 11 inch dolls. My husband made me a little stage in our basement. I began teaching myself stop motion filmmaking. The dolls were a perfect cast – patient with me as I learned the camera.
When the pandemic ended my freelance day job, I used the extra time to keep working – filming in my basement, then recording audio in my homemade sound box, then editing the results. When my stories needed other voices, local actors sent me sound files.”
