After winning the Stop Motion Magazine's Film Festival's Jury Pick award, Goodnight Molly was mentioned in the New York Times!

Words cannot express how ecstatic I am.

Check it out!

Stop. Snap. Move. Repeat for, Oh, 10 or 20 Years.

Big Rarr Rarr

Here is the finalized version of grown up Rarr Rarr. He's gone through several looks, and this is my favorite.

s41 and blinks!

A few days ago I worked on scene 41. I'm tempted to reshoot it, but I think I'll leave it how it is. Here is a process of how she blinks.

Here is how the blink turned out.

So the next step is to composite the shadow of the lion into the shot. That will come once I'm done shooting. Only 2 more shots to go!

"scaaary monster"

So I'm working on animating my last few scenes, but since I've done a lot before I started this blog, I thought I would intersperse some of my older work into some of my posts. Here are some frames from earlier on in the film. This was one of the first scenes where I could really focus on just her facial expressions, and after a few takes I was really pleased with how it came out.

s23's process! yay!

I've still been working on scene 23. Here is a little process video that I made. It was really fun to film myself filming, so I think I'll continue doing so.

Toy Lions

What started out as a wolf (a reference to my childhood toy) developed into a lion. He's gone through a few name changes but I settled on "Rarr Rarr." Because Goodnight Molly has no dialogue, I wanted to give him a name that my little girl could mumble out without using real words.

Filling in s23

Scene 23 Take 5 came together last night. This scene has been my first attempt at animating in quite some time, so it's taking a little bit of getting used to. Though I think this take is usable for my new edit.

One scene done and two more to go! Studios, look out! I'm almost ready to send this off!
