Hello to all! I am a printer by trade and have a long time interest in film and video media. I'm new to the stop motion world and just recently armed myself with a Cannon EOS t6i and Dragonframe software.I'm interested in learning all I can about stop motion animation and all the possibilities of bringing inanimate objects to life.
Hello all. There was a time back in the Dark Ages 1960's when I did a fair amount of animation using my tristy GAF Super-8 camera. I suppose that I was fair at it as I was invited to travel to local High Schools to show and discuss my films. Anyhow, my deep attraction to the opposite sex caused a need to become married at the ripe old age of Seventeen and raise a family. Forty-seven years later and I am still married to the same beautiful girl. Only now I have two adult children and two young Grandsons. I also have my GAF and no film to run through it. I would like to pass on my love of animation to my Grandsons, but I would like to use more modern equipment. I have read that DSLR is okay but very hard on the camera. That's a whole lot of frames to take. My Grandsons are Eleven and Eight years of age. Any guidance for this old newby would really be appreciated. Being on a medical retirement money is somewhat tight. Although I do have more than I did in 1966. Thank you all for any and all advice. Jim "POPPY"
Hi Jim. Have a look through the discussion topics as there are many threads on camera choice. If you can't find an answer, post a topic in the relevant section.
Hey there. I am Lauren Carter and I am a visual artist with a formal background in ceramic pottery and sculpture. At the moment I am job hunting in the Austin, TX area and gaining experience in stop-motion animation while in between jobs. Really excited about this site and hope to connect with other artists to network and possibly collaborate or find work! Thanks for the add.
My name is Peter Olschner. I just recently released my first stop motion short film and am excited to engage with communities like this one in order to learn and grow!

I'd love as much feedback as I can get! Thanks in advance :)
