I first became interested in filmmaking in the mid-90s, but the interest didn’t come from screenwriting or the great movies that were being made at the time. It came from Czech stop motion animators like Jan Svankmajer. The whole Czech surrealistic aesthetic drew me in, and it wasn’t long before I was doing my own animations. I present here two short films; one is my first from 20+ years ago, and the other is the most recent. Though animation eventually developed into a love for live-action filmmaking, I still love stop-mo and will never stop working with the art form.
