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:

"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) "

"What a great film, all around. I turned it on yesterday, and couldn't look away. Technically very advanced, as well. Beautiful and subtle use of computer effects and matte paintings, and spot on character animation. I'm curious to know…"

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…"
