This blog is dedicated to documenting the progress of my, as of yet, unfinished stop-motion short film “The Hollow Boy” which I’ve been working on now for about 5 years.

When I started out making the film 5 years ago I had no Idea where to begin. I had the story I’d written, the animatic I put together and the idea that the stop-motion medium would be the best way to express the subject matter. I had relatively no experience in stop-motion whatsoever so any knowledge I gained resulted from experimentation and basic trial and error.

That being said I’m hoping that this blog will offer some helpful tips and insight on some of the techniques I’ve used during the making of the film.

Thanks for being interested,
