I must confess I have a secret obsession with stop-motion animation, ever since my dad & I created one back when I was about 10 or 12 years old. It took all day and amounted to only 5 minutes of video. I admit I was disappointed with the results. I also wanted more creative control. I wanted the animation to tell a story-- my story. But I also remember the thrill of seeing the movie and feeling pride at knowing I had a hand in making it. A lot more goes into making a stop-motion than anyone could imagine.
