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

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.
