Popol Vuh: The Hero Twins Play Ball With Deaths (15 second)

One of the few things I got from my time learning to read the hieroglyphs of the Maya is a lasting love of their surviving creation myth, the Popol Vuh. My next project is the brothers, One and Seven Blowgunner, and their ball court on the top of death's domain. This is a 15 second look at this project.

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.
