Movie Magic Stop Motion
I have always loved the art of stop motion animation. At the age of 13 I was at the Mountain View Drive in in Winooski Vermont one summer and I saw a movie called Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. I watched in awe as three ghouls rose from a fire and proceeded to battle Sinbad. It was at that point that i said to myself “that’s what I want to do when I grow up”. Well, I haven’t done any stop motion YET, because a little picture by the name of Jurassic Park changed everything for visual effects. I stress the yet because I’m currently working on a stop motion puppet to animate. I’ll post more about that as the project progresses. Well, after 3 feature films, working in e-learning, animating curriculum, video games, and now currently modeling and animating equipment for mines, I finally have time to delve into the stop motion arena. Because of this I have posted a nice little documentary about the art that has influenced visual artists everywhere…. Stop Motion Animation! Enjoy!
