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 think you are right, we don't value what we get for free as much.  Love the 3d stopmo part of the animation at the start of that, looks fantastic!"

"The tanks are moving way too fast. I know tanks can go pretty fast, but at the scale you're shooting, they will look much more realistic if you move them slower. In addition to equal increments, as TEDCO mentioned, you should keep in mind the…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Jacob's discussion Adobe premier and Dragon compatability
"Yes, Adobe Premiere is great for stop-motion animation. Unlike Final Cut, it can work with image sequences like you mentioned (by going "Import..." then choosing the first frame of your image sequence and selecting the "image…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Sylther's discussion 12fps in Dragonframe, 24fps in post

Evan DeRushie replied to Mastermind Films's discussion Help with chroma keying
"The Keylight plugin is far superior to Colour Key. It might not work instantly (Nick mentioned some noise), but only because it has options that need tweaking. Don't give up! Not all footage is the same, so it needs more info than just which…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Garrick's discussion turning the camera off & on
"Never unplug from the wall without turning off the camera first! If you need to, just leave the camera on for the night. After you close the program or pause the live-feed, the live-view won't be active, and the camera isn't drawing much…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Frame rates, exporting and workflow
""Picture lock" is more of a step in post production than it is a function of any program. The idea is this: once you've replaced all your animatic shots with low-res quicktimes of your actual animation, you would spend some time…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Ian Timothy's discussion Shooting on twos
"I have to disagree about shooting 2 frames when shooting "twos". It used to make sense, because film could only play back at 24fps. But nowadays, the "fine grain structure" on digital stills is almost…"
