I'm going to tell you about my life as animator.
Ever since I heard of it, stop motion has been a process I've always wanted to try. My first projects, in which baked sculpey animals run around on a paper set, are sadly lost, due to my first computer crashing, but I have been able to recover some early experiments in plasticine, a kind of clay that doesn't dry out. I used it to make some crude animation, like this blob creature, inspired by the "Bolero" sequence of the animated feature "Allegro non Troppo" I saw on youtube. Trust me, it was less jerky on my computer.
