S03 Episode 6: Gavin Folgert, Animator



I went to a local animation meet up in February and afterward Gavin had posted a stop-motion short he made on the meet up's Facebook event page. I've only made 2D animation and have always wanted to try stop-motion. So, I reached out to Gavin to learn more about what he does. He met with me at the Colectivo Coffee Shop on Monroe St. After the interview we got together and made this little claymation short film. https://youtu.be/lIOPX95zI2Y

Also, another one of my pop-up interviews, I meet fabric artist Stacy Stone.

I sit down at the end of each day and think about what happened that day. That’s why I call the series " Then this happened… " It first started out as a cathartic thing when my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. The first book is of the year going through th

Still trying to find the right balance for it though.

Song artwork.

It's a shadow on an object. Physically it should be there but it looks better without it and that seems wrong.
