Looking for Animators/Lighters/Model Makers in Portland, OR!

Howdy!

My name's Kyle Stephens and I'm an animator and musician who just moved to the Portland area. I'm slowly getting to know as many industry people as I can, but I've not had the chance to just sit down with some good ole animators out here and talk shop. I'd love to meet anyone on here who also resides in Portland.

Of course I'm also looking for help on my next animated short, another McDonough short. This guy...

So far I've met a ton of really great musicians and have begun working on the next McDonough short, but I can't do all the animation side on my own. This would be something where I would want everyone to be payed for their time. I plan to do a kickstarter campaign for this and further shorts, just need a stronger team on the animation side before I can start asking for money. If you're interested or know anyone who might be or just feel like shooting the bull on animation in Portland, drop me a line or email me at StephensKM@gmail.com. Thanks guys!

To give you an idea for what I do, here's the first McDonough short...

And here's some animation tests with the new puppet...

Looking good!

Nice stuff. Love the design of the parapet or whatever you call the thing he jumps from. And the bird flying around and landing at the beginning was really nifty.
