Produced at the BNS

This summer I teamed up with Brand New School and Open The Portal to make this 100% dirt stopmotion piece. We used CG previz to work out the flow nd inform camera movement that we could emulate on stage. It was fascinating to use a material as "mundane" as the dirt beneath your feet.  Shaping cornfields and rolling hills, tight typography transitions, bugs and root systems on a 2 day stop motion shoot was challenging. But we dug in and broke elements up to make it happen.
