Did you say “GIMME MORE STOP MOTION ANIMATION, POR FAVOR!”?

Can do.

Tropfest, the largest short film festival in le worlde is holding a 6-second #tropvine competition prior to opening for entries for the real deal… and there’s $5k on the line.

Yes please.

After the wild success* of the Winning Formula title sequence which saw Klaus and I become professional** stop motion animators, I thought I should give the method another crack. We found an appropriate dad joke, I printed and cut out a bunch of animals, took a ton of photos, recorded Klaus and myself doing the dialogue then edited it down and… Voila!

* We really liked it.

** Yeah, you heard. Professional.

UPDATE: My Vine has been honoured as a part of the [official selection] for the #tropvine festival (aka the worlds shortest short film festival!) Woohoo! See all you legends at the festival this coming Wednesday 12 August in Potts point!

UPDATE UPDATE: YOU GUYS, I WON!?

Paper cut. And score. And fold.

Made this one… well these three… by drawing up some geometries, laying some water colour paper over them, sitting a large piece of glass in my lap and shining a light up through my legs then – wait. At this point, my dad would say – “Oh, why didn’t you just use the light shining out of your ass?”. Good one, dad. Anyway, then I cut or scored the lines with a knife and a metal ruler so i didn’t end up with any pencil marks ugging up my paper.

As they are a gift, I framed them. In frames from Ikea. Because apparently I can’t seem to bring myself to buy frames from any other frame vendor. Frame is not included in this image so probs not worth the mention.
