Scottie D. created a new topic ' Animation Wild Card' in the forum. 6 months ago

Hi everyone!

I'd like to share a project that my wife Alexis (a stop-motion production designer) and a couple other small studios have helped organize and maintain. It's called Animation Wild Card, and it's a group of professional stop-motion animation friends creating and/or sharing small shorts while under quarantine and releasing those shorts in batches as episodes. It's kind of a mixtape of animation, like that show KaBlam! from the 90s.

Two episodes have been released and my wife and I have created a short clay-animated series for the project using our leftover materials called Magical Cat. We plan to release a new episode every 2 weeks. Here are the first two episodes, please enjoy!


My wife and I made a 2nd episode of Magical Cat- a short series about a very non-magical cat.

Magical Cat: Episode 2

He found a pencil!

Tamarame is friends with Scottie D.

We made this short as part of a larger project called Animation Wild Card.

What will he do next?!

Mystery Meat (SYFY)

We created this bumper for the SYFY network. Our goal was to give it a 90s feel by choosing a very 90s idea and using fun colors with bold lighting.

I've been using a polymer clay for a while and I think it works great for animation. I like that I can bake pieces that I don't want to deform while animating. For example, eyeballs, teeth, shirt collars, etc.
Although it can't be melted for mixing batches of colors, I've found that mixing by hand is adequate for smaller personal projects.
