Back in 2003, I had an unique opportunity to work on a short film, I decided to try to do it in stop-motion / claymation. I never did any stop-motion before and somehow through trial and error I was able to finish the film. One thing lead to another and I became involved in directing many stop-motion jobs. Unlike painting or illustration, the process of stop-motion is very different from anything else, there’s a lot of planning, pre-production, etc. Every step has to be precise and clear before moving on to the next phase, it requires a total team effort to get it done which can be very exhausting, but also gratifying. If painting is like making a stir-fry, then stop motion is like baking a cake.
