This is a collection of the stop-motion animations I did while learning from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. It starts with some simple exercises with a magnet and progresses to more complex puppet animation from there. The human puppets and dialogue are property of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.

Character Puppet Fabrication at Stoopid Buddy
I spent my summer studying both stop motion animation and character fabrication with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios in Burbank, CA!
Selected and screened at The Roseville Animation Festival (2012) and the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival (2012)! This is a short animation made by myself and two other students at DePaul University. We were going for a "paper cutout" look for the style, but it was actually made in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects and edited in Premiere. Our team was so small, we all had a hand in pretty much everything at one point or another, but we gave ourselves a little credit for the main tasks. Hope you enjoy it!
