Here's a series of 3 stop-motion spots I made recently for a law firm. Movie parodies done with office equipment.It was a quick job- simple setup and execution. I only wish they went for the Tron…Continue

I'm a stop-motion animator and director from Toronto. I've worked on a few TV shows at Cuppa Coffee Studios, as well as music videos and independent short films. You can see some of my work here: evanderushie.com

My first short film as a director is an original fable called 'The Fox & the Chickadee.' Until it's released, here's the trailer:

Evan DeRushie replied to Jason Whetzell's discussion I want to use Dragonframe's motion control (Is this what I need?)
"To my point on micro-stepping: your stepper motor has 200 full-steps per revolution, 1.8 degrees per rotation. When you're driving the ball-screw shaft, a single step is an incredibly small increment already, so I don't believe you'd…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Jason Whetzell's discussion I want to use Dragonframe's motion control (Is this what I need?)
"I'll throw in my bit of knowledge as well. No need for micro-steps. You can set the motor driver to "full steps", because you'll never need the resolution of a micro-step once the motor movement is translated by the ballscrew.…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Twin Tales's discussion Good tripod for stop motion?
"The Manfrotto 410 Jr works very well. If you can, depending on your studio floor, I find the best solution is hot-gluing the tripod feet to the floor. Sandbags weigh it down ok, but hot glue keeps it locked. When you want to move it, pour rubbing…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Hannah Garcia's discussion Is asking 300$ for a ball and socket armature puppet (from scratch) enough?
"Hi Hannah, I know the puppet maker you inquired with- she made the puppets for my recent film. Don't be offended if she doesn't get back to you- she might be swamped with other projects at the moment, and I know that she gets a lot of…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion First test for DIY moco rig
"The key to a smooth move, as far as I've figured out, is minimal keyframes. Each axis should really only have 2 keyframes, one at the start and end of the move. There would only be another keyframe needed if the axis changes direction at some…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion First test for DIY moco rig
"I'm curious to know more about your keyframe problem. I have an understanding of mo-co gear, and programming with the dragonframe interface. It's simple enough to program an arc into the speed of a move - to ease in and out smoothly with…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Snowhorse's discussion motion control systems compatible with dragonframe
"I use this linear slider: http://openbuildspartstore.com/c-beam-linear-actuator-bundle/ It's relatively inexpensive, but it comes with a stepper motor, it comes in different lengths, and you can put it all together yourself. You'll…"

Evan DeRushie replied to David Hunter's discussion Best Practices for Backup/Archive of StopMotion files
"I didn't. But honestly, my system was a quick space-clearing solution. Ideally, you're either keeping an intact Dragonframe file structure, or just grabbing the _X1 folder for post. The only reason I didn't was I had other exposures…"

Evan DeRushie replied to David Hunter's discussion Best Practices for Backup/Archive of StopMotion files

Evan DeRushie replied to oxanova's discussion I can't drag and drop .psd or .png on my timeline on Premiere Pro cS5
"It would be easiest to work in a 24fps timeline. This is standard practice, even if your footage is at 12. There's no drawbacks, really. Transitions like fades or dissolves will look better at 24fps. Eventually you'll be exporting a 24fps…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Bobby's discussion Rig removal

Evan DeRushie replied to Cor Snel's discussion why twos
"I'd say if anyone's having trouble deciding between 1's and 2's, shoot 2's. In most cases, if your 2's animation looks choppy, it's not going to be better on 1's. Well timed 2's animation can be perfectly…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Cor Snel's discussion why twos
"The term "twos" is a hold-over from the days when everything was shot on film. They had to shoot two frames, because there wasn't an option to play the film through the projector at half speed. In today's digital age:…"

Posted on February 5, 2013 at 5:00pm 5 Comments

I recently visited Scott Portingale in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) for two weeks to help him out on his epic short film titled 'Ethos'. He brought me out there from Toronto as a sort of animation mentor. Scott has made a couple…
