Hello all, my name is Peter Ellis and i’m a Stop Motion animator. I learnt to animate at Chapman Entertainment (Where Bob the Builder was made) my first film was a successful kickstarter campaign. One of the first 1500 in the UK. The film, Dan of the Dead won a few awards and is running on my channel if you wish to watch it. 

This is YouTube channel has been set up to help upcoming animators learn the art of stop motion in a fun way. I will be doing tutorials and hopefully meeting old friends at Mackinnon and Saunders to ask questions that you would like answering. If you haven’t seen already, i’m Currently running a series on “Making a Stop Motion Puppet” making a mini me of myself for the channel. Than i’ll Talk about how to animate it etc.

This channel is for all levels of experience, from beginner to advance. I’ll be looking into techniques, 3D printing, reviews of films and making camera slider equipment using stepper motors

i hope to see you over on the channel very soon, if there is anything you want covering on the channel? Please feel free to get in touch, via the channel or here

many thanks 

Pete Ellis
