My brother, Matt recently graduated from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. His final project was a stop-motion animated film, where he basically created every aspect of the piece. His film turned out incredible! I got my copy in the mail and I've watched it over and over. At some point you should be able to watch the whole thing online. For now though, you can see a bunch of great process shots he took while making the film as well as a trailer showing peeks at the some of the work he did in school: www.ellsworthanimation.com
Someday we're planning on collaborating in some way. For now though, I'm just excited to see his next idea take shape. Next week I'll be in his neighborhood and we'll get to hang out for a couple of days before I head to a comics festival in Sacramento.
