Stop-motion animation is one of my favorites topics to teach. Students have a lot of fun making the sets, and that ‘aha’ moment when every picture is put together in editing is priceless. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing all the hard work of taking hundreds of still pictures pay off in a beautiful animation.
Growing the filmmaking and animation program and curriculum over the last fifteen years has given me tremendous personal and professional satisfaction. There’s always more to learn, and having a relentless hunger that pushes me to grow as a practitioner in my field has been an invaluable asset in growing as an educator.
