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 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…"
