Miniature builder/Animator/Assistant Director
Stoltz Marketing Group (SMG) & United Way of Treasure Valley
Stop Motion Animation
I was fortunate enough to be hired for an internship position at Stoltz Marketing Group of Boise, Idaho. The project was a stop-motion animation project for the United Way of Treasure Valley’s campaign for 2012, about how everyone who contributes can help create an impact in the local area. We worked with Dragonframe to photograph the animation. I was responsible for the miniature sets at first and then I became 60% responsible for photographing the short as well. It was fun to construct the miniatures, the sets and the crane and other little things that added to the magic of the film. I added little things to the laboratory sets, like images of the Starship Enterprise, Werner Von Braun and other little easter eggs in the sets. I had a ton of fun working on this and this was one of the most enjoyable experiences to be apart of.
