Another exciting thing this week was Tom Gasek's visit to campus. He's an amazing stop motion animator, and he gave us a workshop on how to animate. Our shot 5 shows his influence in it for sure. Also he gave very useful tips for grip work before animating and for demo reels. I'm so thankful he came and gave us such useful info.
I also went to a lecture of Mark Kennedy, an disney story artist, at ball state this week. He gave a very informative presentation for the creation of story. I even found out he got his start in stop motion also.
So now I leave you with the photos from this week.
