The Statement of Harley Warren

A look, tongue in cheek, at the other side of Randolph Carter’s Statement by H.P. Lovecraft. We follow Harley Warren as he goes down in the tunnel leaving Randolph Carter on the other end of the phone line. I was half way through this animation when I decided to try my hand at stop motion comic books. So I turned this project into my fisrt stopmo comic. Which is why parts of it are very limited animation. I found a whole lot of animation footage when updating my ebook “Stop Motion on a Shoestring” 10th edition. So I decided to assemble the footage into some kind of animation ala NBC’s “Telecomics”. It still works even without full animation. And, fittingly, just In time for Walpurgis night.

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.
