"Adam, it is SO awesome! I've been watching it like at least once a week since it was released! SO funny - especially the part where the Heaver starts to eat the kid's fake beard and then spits it out and stomps on it!!! LOL! Makes me laugh…"

Blue Jays - Stop Motion Silhouettes

I've worked in clay animation for almost 30 years, but for fun and a change of pace I thought I'd try a different medium.  So I spent a couple thousand hours, spread out over a couple years, and wrote, composed, animated and voiced my first attempt at a stop motion silhouette film.  It's called "Blue Jays". I got a piece of glass and a put a piece of diffusion on the front side, then used removable double-stick scotch tape to adhere black construction paper characters and sets to the glass from…See More

Randy Boyum replied to Zach Sawan's discussion Advice for photographing miniature set
"Interesting looking set.  I like the style.  Cool trees.  But wow that is small.  Your characters must be tiny.  A lot of animation puppets are 6 to 10 inches tall, and those would tower out of frame.  My main advice is…"

It's been ages since I posted here, but I finally have something new to share.  Last week I finished the first of a series of spots for Aussie House Swap.com.  This was a challenging and complicated animation, but it was very fun to work through.  I'd love to hear any comments you'd care to share.  Take a look if you'd like:Doreen - Aussie House Swaphttps://youtu.be/m7gBsG0O_0cRandy See More
