Hey guys-Well it's been a very very long time coming but, it's finally here Sinbad The Fifth Voyage will finally be in theaters This coming February 7th. There's a list of cities it will be showing…Continue
So glad you finally got a demo reel out! I am on a kludged-together system using a tablet with a phone connection wi-fied to my portable (don't ask!), and so I cannot download because it is horribly expensive and uses up the small bandwidth I have on the tablet, but at least I can communicate.
The animation school has had major problems, the politicos apparently were jerking me around, insincere, probably using the project specs to impress the President in a list of what they were supposedly working on. They would demand instant updates, presentations, etc. and say they would back me when I applied to the state for financing, but whenever I asked them to set up an appointment to go in together, or a letter of support they would either have some lame excuse or set an appointment and neither show up nor even have the courtesy to cancel. Real assholes. I finally told them to call me when they were serious and they blew up, accusing me of wanting to game the system for my own profit! I cut that short by telling them they could red-line any budget item they felt was out of line, but by then the trust had been broken.
So I am trying to do it on my own, looking for some land on which to build a house and a structure for a studio/school for about 10 students. I am getting old, and don't have much time left to do long-term projects, so all I can do is keep slogging along and live vicariously through those of you who are actually doing things. I am filling my time with studying screen writing, directing, photography, etc. to be prepared when I finally can afford things like latex, a camera, software, etc. . . . you know, the STUFF!
Thank you for your enthusiasm for the project, and, who knows, maybe it will eventually be real and I will have you down here teaching a workshop!
Hopefully my internet connection will be upgraded, I am living in a rather remote area, and having the devil of a time getting an ADSL connection put in, so I will probably be on irregularly at best, don't think I have abandoned THE QUEST!
As ever, your work inspires me, awes me, and I am very thankful for your friendship. My email address is email@example.com if you want to write.

Puppet Putty is formulated by clay animator Don Carlson. Properties include colors that do not bleed on your hands, a matte finish, cleans up with water, is very light weight, firm, non-greasy and has a silky texture.
Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me or point me in the direction of a tutorial for animating a matte for rig removal in Adobe Premiere or After Effects? Here's a quickie little test I did of my puppet just to dip my feet into how his rig…Continue
Anybody have any idea why my live view screen looks like this? It is like the camera only wants to show a single color channel in live view. The actual capture looks fine...but if I have to animate using this crappy looking single-channel pass that…Continue
Hello fellow stop motion-ers!I have managed to teach myself enough to make a few stop motions, but I still don't quite understand what type of lighting/bulbs to use to prevent the subtle flickering throughout an animation? I want to be able to…Continue
I have three heads which I are going to have moulds made of them, and then are going to be slush cast. I want to put little wooden blocks inside the head with holes for the eyes to sit in, wire and epoxy for the nose and epoxy putty teeth with a…Continue
