My past professional experiences are in working for John Lemmon Films in North Carolina, and Webster Colcord when he was set up in his basement in Portland Oregon. I have animated, built sets, sculpted puppets, and done everything that went with making commercials with them. We've made spots for the Cartoon Network, Warner Brothers, the Metro company and others.
More importantly I learned the tricks from those experiences that were once known to a small group. With the internet it's a heck of a lot easier to learn stop motion, but at the time it was nearly impossible unless you had the right connections.
You can look at some of my older works at animateclay.com "my other site" by clicking here. There are also the commercials I've helped make towards the bottom.
Over the past four years I have owned my own small business, selling self made how-to videos on the art of stop motion. The business is what keeps me afloat and allows me to pursue my dream of expanding the art of stop motion. If you haven't already seen my business site click here. It is probably the most known web page on the internet that deals with clay animation.
