THE SMA FORUM ARCHIVE

When I was a kid, I was intrigued with the puppet animation featured in the Rankin/Bass holiday specials such as RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER. At the same time, I was amazed by Ray Harryhausen's creature films such as THE 7th VOYAGE OF SINBAD. However it was the 1933 RKO film, KING KONG that ultimately hooked me. Scavenging the libraries, I searched for books on the subject of stop-motion animation but there was not much to be found. By the time I was eleven years old, I had managed to animate my first stop-motion film. Today I work in the film industry and am always learning more about this unique and unusual art form.

StopMotionAnimation.com was launched in April 1999. Since then, it has become a popular meeting place for aspiring animators.
