Hey all, it was just about 20 years ago that I purchased this domain name and set up this website in April of 1999. Over the years, it's been interesting for me to see and hear from people who were impacted from this site in a positive way. I've even been able to meet or work with a few of you out there. It has always been my desire to use this site as a way of informing, educating and connecting talented people. So, let's hear from you, if you have any stories from the past 20 years relating to this website, I'd love to hear them. - Anthony
I would also like to add that when someone asked "How did they do the heads for Corpse bride? that got me and others to do some digging , And seeing as I didn't have the skills to make small gears I came up with My own way.Then I shared them here and started to develop it into something that I was happy to get to should people up at the Montreal Festival. That lead to making two heads for a film up there and a few friendships along the way.Also got to show Anthony and Henry Selick one year!!
This also lead to having John Ikuma interview me about them in Stop Motion Magazine!!
And also last but not least learning from some on this site and getting to know peoples work like Nick Hilligoss and Ron Cole ,who I also got to met and see his studio and his own puppet making .
Well thats just some of the things that came about being here .I know other social medias popped up and has brought me in other directions I still share here and will continue to do so :)
Thanks for having us Anthony !!!
Also I like to say again that the work that I was exposed here is great at any level . Those who are trying their hand for the first time or people with awesome skills like Justin Rausch !!
Another two I got to meet Justin and Shel !! I love what they do !!!!
Hey Anthony! I came across the 20 year post accidentally via Eric Scott (a member here for long time) recently emailed me about other matters which brought my attention to SMA.COM. I just posted this at my facebook Stop Motion Works page ....
