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:

"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…"

"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:…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Darren Nemeth's discussion What is the best for my application? StopMotionPro7 or Dragonframe?
"I think there might be a problem with the system. I just read that your Moviola runs at 3 frames per second. The problem is that capture software isn't designed to work that quickly- Dragonframe takes at least a full second before it's…"

"You're right Nick. Depth matte creation from stereo pairs is far from perfect. It would need some cleaning up. For a computerless solution, this one is a classic (from 1975, no less) "

Evan DeRushie replied to Varg Ossian's discussion The Problem:

"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…"

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