Looks like some casual meetings took place on April 1, 2007 on both sides of the country.
Here on the east coast, I was invited over to Takuro Masuda’s studio where he is filming his stop motion project for the Center for Puppetry Arts Experimental Puppetry Theater. His project involves Native American mythology and looks to be superb. Takuro is an Atlanta animator and one of his films titled “Room 101” is viewable on YouTube.
Brett Thompson, was also there. Brett was interviewed and had his Flash animations shown on a cable show last night. I missed that but hope to see a copy sometime. We all talked about stopmo walk cycles, video assist, set design and other stuff.
Out on the west coast Michael Granberry met up with Justin Rasch and Shel Wagner-Rasch from Stop Motion Mission where they chatted about stopmo and ate Indian food. You can’t go wrong with that combo.
