Wow, this is exciting! I've been wanting to see it since reading about it on Justin's bog!

Thanks Don!  I was very fortunate to have the amazing Justin Rasch as my mentor early on…He showed me the stop motion ropes and he was kind enough to promote my work on his blog.  What a guy!!!

You don't have to tell me Jriggity is amazing... I remember his first stop motion clips. Far as I'm concerned he's the Milt Kahl of stop motion.

Mega-kudos Awesome puppets. Have you posted anything on the construction?

Comment by Justin Connolly on August 7, 2014 at 10:15pm

Hey Ed!  Thank you so much for the kind words!  I do have some construction pics on my blog from way back when.  You'll have to go through my older posts, but they are there...http://justinconnolly.blogspot.com/ Thanks for watching!
