ClayDream is out and you can now watch it online. Marq Evans who had been documenting the life of Will Vinton had put the film in the festival circuit for a while. It has great reviews and honestly I agree with all of them, I also think it should be mandatory viewing if you love stop motion. Will was one of the major pioneers who created his own techniques that made his studio a household name in the 80's and 90's. The film shows the beginnings of Wills life, along with interviews and stories about all the people who helped build his studio along the way.
Marq also made the transfer of power from his own studio to the Knight family (owners of Nike shoes) central to the story. If you wondered how that transpired, film from legal proceedings is inserted at key moments in the film. Some of it is hard to watch. It makes you look at the Portland stop motion scene in a different way. If you'd like to see the film then you can find it at this link right here: https://claydream.vhx.tv/
