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 Varg Ossian's discussion The Problem:
"To address the OP not wanting to be a jack of all trades: You need to find people to work with. Don't try and write a story just so you have something to animate. There are writers for that- who spend more time practising their writing than you…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Tim Tracey's discussion Motion Control for Dragonframe
"The stepper motor version is the best for stop-motion. Servos can run faster, which is more useful for live-action purposes, but they are less accurate. The steppers are very accurate, and have much better repeatability (eg. running to the end of…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Tim Tracey's discussion Motion Control for Dragonframe
"DitoGear makes a 3 axis + focus unit that connects with Dragonframe. I've used this complete system, and it works well, despite using servo motors instead of steppers. As far as I know, DitoGear is the only complete system similar to what…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Steve Boot's discussion O Apostolo online
"I hope this is another sign that DVDs are dead. It cost me $2 to rent. If I wanted to watch it again in my lifetime, I could rent it again many times before spending more than it would cost to own. I have a small collection of stop-motion films on…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Hendrikus De Vaan's discussion Help me spend some money! (new camera time, with a few tech questions)
"The exposure simulation problem with Nikons would be a deal breaker for me. It's an option that you can turn on or off in Canons, and I can't animate anything with it turned to "auto". Every time you stick your hands and arms…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Jantsch Niko's discussion Stop motion Slider - Motion Control system recommendation

Evan DeRushie replied to Christopher Olsen's discussion Rig removal with a camera move
"For multi-axis moves, I'd recommend using Dragonframe's hand-cranked camera-move calculator (http://www.dragonframe.com/downloads/Dragonframe%20User%20Guide%20-%20Mac.pdf page 265) No harm in painting your rigs green, but you'll…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Christopher Olsen's discussion Rig removal with a camera move
"The best way is to shoot a "clean plate" of the move, which is simply animating the camera move again without your character. You'll need to have your move worked out with marks on a dial, or some other system that can be repeated…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Darren Nemeth's discussion Help me build a new animation PC!! :)

Evan DeRushie replied to Ben Tobin's discussion Issue using Nikon manual lens on a Canon camera in Dragonframe.
"You have the right idea with turning room lights on inbetween frames. This is called a "bash light". You can use any light or lamp, but make sure the switch is right next to you- not across the room. You'll need to set a delay (1-2…"
