What's good guys?

I'm Matthew, I've only really been animating for about half a year but I love it and really want to keep improving, and a place like this seems like it would offer some helpful guidance. I hope I can get to know people more, it's always really cool to find a group of like-minded people with similar interests.

Hello, pals! I am happy to be a part of this forum. I joined a little while ago when I was researching for a project, but now I actually have the time to be an active member! (Wild, right?)

I'm a recent art school graduate looking to get a job working in stop motion. Like so many others have already described, I was inspired by the amazing work before me. I'm showing my young age here, but I used to watch The Corpse Bride and Coraline on repeat when I was a kid. I re-discovered the art form in college when a scheduling conflict forced me into a stop motion class, and I haven't looked back since. It's hard to put my thumb on exactly why I love the medium, but I think it's that stop motion is one of the only art forms I know that actively brings things to life.

I have been spending my time applying to darn near every stop-motion-adjacent position I can find, but I'm also working on a couple of commissions, and now I'm planning my entry for STOPMO JAM 3! I can't wait to make new friends and see the cool stuff everyone's making. :)
