I absolutely love stop motion. I love the time it takes to place an object, take a shot, move the object, take a shot, and repeat the process over and over. It's pretty therapeutic (WHOA-just spelled that word without auto-correct). I actually enjoy doing lots of tedious things that most people would find absolutely awful. I love filling up pieces of paper with tiny swirls, I love finding all the extras in video games, like hidden bananas or loot boxes; I love playing newspaper games like sudoku and crosswords, I love geometry and algebra problems--and you know what? I really dig puzzles, and stop motion is absolutely a puzzle.
Check out one of my very first stop motion videos using a chalkboard and some change in my bedroom when I was a kid.
