Went to the Laika website this morning to see if there are any new job postings for thins I'd love to do.  Nothing new just yet, but the jobs I applied for including Stop Motion Animation Assistant, RP Face Librarian, Mold Maker, Character Fabricator, and so on are still there, meaning they haven't chosen someone yet.  So I'm keeping my hopes up!


Along with my career search I find that coming to this site is very comforting in finding the small and humble community of Stop Motion enthusiast.  At times I wonder about pitching one of my idea to this community and hopefully getting enough help to complete one of my larger projects.  The next film I'd like to make is something of a family drama.  I pictured it in the clean style of a Henry Selick film, like the Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline.  I may use a site like Kickstarter to help, but I feel like I can find a lot of support here for it.  Hopefully I'll be able to start that project someday...soon.
