Why I Animate

I did some animation footage a few years back of a skeleton with a sword, which is the height of arrogance, but I had the skeleton for a project and what else is someone who grew up watching and loving fantasy movies of the 50s, 60s and 70s going to do with a skeleton with a sword? I have been doing a lot of 15 second animations of late and the footage fits the format.

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.
