Why do you love stop motion? I have a visual arts degree in digital media and I fell into animation because I love the control it gives me over my own work it allows me to write, design, act and edit just about every element of my work if I choose to. I also am a very hands on person and stop motion gives me the ability to animate in 3D without being stuck at a computer for months.
What is your best stop motion skill? I love to bring to life inanimate objects and to model puppet components.
What was your biggest accomplishment in animation? The first stop motion animation I ever did is featured on the National museum of Australia website. (http://www.nma.gov.au/online_features/australian_digital_journeys_2011/eleanor_evans)
What are your future plans in animation? I hope in the future to continue to animate and produce some longer animated works (my current big project is going to be only 2-3 minutes long). I am interested in using stop motion animation as a part of a general film making practice. I also love to see animation in an art gallery context, so I frequently submit animation work to art competitions.
