I'm a stop-motion director, animator, and co-owner of an animation studio in Toronto called Stop Motion Department. My professional animation experience includes animating and set-supervising on The Little Prince (2015), TV series work at Cuppa Coffee Studiosshort films, and commercial work.

My two short films are both online, "The Fox and the Chickadee" (2012) and "Birdlime" (2017).

Birdlime - short film

After finishing this film back in 2017, and playing in many film festivals, it's finally time to premiere online. So here it is! This was my second full short film that I wrote/directed/lit, and the first that I animated fully. It's also much longer than my previous film, which was a challenge to keep the pace up and hold attention for over 10 minutes. I stuck to a very limited set of camera angles, which I think worked for the story, and also allowed me to focus more of my time on animation,…See More

"Very Aesop! Excellent cinematography, understated, flowing animation, wonderful composition and great voice work --  a little gem!"

"Yeah look up "virtual holds" or "holds" in the Dragonframe manual. You shoot one frame, and hold it for multiple frames on the x-sheet. You can change the timing of the hold, like an editing program, so you can time out your…"

"For my own process, I shoot a blocking pass first, then the real shot mostly on 2s, with some action on ones if needed. The process of block, rehearsal, 1s animation is in use (I believe) by Laika and other big studios- but this is for feature level…"

"That's really interesting. I have just done a snow scene, using washing powder (non-bio!), which was nice and granular, but of course it wouldn't stay still if touched by mistake. I like the petroleum jelly idea for some control.  BTW…"

"I worked with a great art director Winston Hacking who built all of the sets, and he came up with a solution for the snow made of salt and petroleum jelly that looked nice and animated well too. I think we used this mostly for close up snow, and…"

"Really nice, and a great fable. Liked the wings and the fur, both of which must have been quite challenging. And the great sense of depth in the wood. How did you do the snow? It looks very realistic, nicely rutted, but also great on the branches…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Graham Ludders's discussion Rigging, tie downs, and practice
"I would recommend practising animation with tie-downs, not rigging. There's lot of reasons to use rigging for animation- such as heavy characters or small feet. But it's an extra level of complication that you should avoid if you're…"
