Weiner Olympics

"Weiner" Olympics is a test footage production. The thing with test footage productions is that they are looser with more of a UPA / limited animation feeling which is quite liberating to my standard stop motion animation technique. When I am working on a longer piece I create a theme for all my test footage so that I end up with more that just the main animation project. The theme here is weird sports events. Since the first one was Mr. Bones as the luge the rest of the sports took on a winter edge.

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.
