I stopped in to see a good friend of mine here in Halifax yesterday. Paton Francis. We were talking art, tech, iPhones, iPads, apps and the like. Then he showed me his YouTube channel where he’s posted some of his stop motion animation reel. He’s getting quite a few hits, but I think he should get more! It’s really great stuff. Check it out!

(Note: Some of the clips are pre-editing and still have rigs visible in the shot.)

While you’re at it, take a spin through Paton’s blog too. Cardboardtreehouse.com Paton was the lead animator and co-director of an animated short called
Little Thunder that’s making some rounds in the Canadian film fest circuit including the Canadian Film Showcase at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.

You can find out all about it, and ways to see it on Cardboardtreehouse.
