Hello, i am Mike :). My wife and I are directing a stop motion horror tragedy film here in florida. We are totally new, to stop animation.

hi kathi- just wanted to introduce myself. my name is ri, i'm in oakland california working on my 3rd but much more ambitious stop mo film. incidentally, i think we have some mutual friends in north carolina (i grew up in sc)- joie and grant austin- i met who i think was your brother at their wedding a few years ago. he gave me some armature advice, which helped immensely building the puppets for the film. anyhow, i'm a fan, and hi!
