Podcast with Animator of the first claymation feature film: I Pogo Go

He also animated on Vincent, the stop motion sequence for Elf, the Simpsons stop motion couch gag, and a ton of other stuff!
 
His story is interesting, because instead of focusing entirely on stop motion, he expanded his skill set to include special effects, producing, writing, puppeteering, etc., which ended up making his studio more successful and giving him greater opportunities to work on really cool stop motion projects.
Plus, he shares:
  • How to mentally position yourself so you’ll always be in-demand by studios
  • Important notes to make when negotiating a contract
  • How to gain connections at the top studios
  • What is was like working with Tim Burton

Really enjoyed your interview of Stephen Chiodo. You tossed him some great questions which he superbly answered. By the way, glad to hear you are getting back into Animation Terry, always liked your little films back in the day.

Sweet! Thanks for posting. I subscribed to the podcast too.
