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.

Hey everyone!

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!

If you want to watch my first project, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2-bFoNGdp0

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

Hi!
I'm an amateur animator/puppetmaker/filmmaker.
By day I work as a teatcher, by night I make my own animation projects.
I like to make everything by myself, puppets, sets, armatures, you name it.
I've been making animations only a year, so I'm a newbie, but willing to learn more.
I live in southern Finland.

Howdy howdy! I'm Northern California-based, trained as an artist and illustrator, trained people in digital imaging, did years in VFX (compositing) and motion graphic design, and decades in interactive, and a love for Eastern European animation has drawn me to try my hand at it (a recent visit to Tippett Studios and seeing the progress on Mad God Part 3 was a huge driver to try it out). I'm starting with animating found objects and moving into more character-based work. Even my background in wargaming miniature painting has helped propel me towards this particular craft. Not sure where it's leading, nor do I much care, because it's a fascinating discipline and a whole set of related-but-new challenges I've not had to contend with. 

Always learning,
Nathan

Hi, my name is Kat! I'm a stop motion student in San Francisco, CA. I have a background in theatre, mainly carpentry and scenic painting, but I'm learning everything I can in regards to puppet making and animation, but my main interest is set building and painting for stop-mo sets. I'm so happy to have found a whole online community with tons of tips and advice! 

Hello everyone!

I'm a recent college grad who majored in Communications but ended up wanting to do animation right after college (poor planning). I've been reading up a lot and want to start making more animations. In high school, I made a couple hand-drawn animations, and in college I made a couple stop-motions. But anyway, I find this site an incredible, inspiring resource!

Hope you're all doing well!
