I have just finished putting up some information about the launch of the Montreal Stop Motion animation film festival. This is its first year. It will run from October 24th to the 25th. Erik Goulet is behind this ambitious project. Erik worked with SoftImage ( the CGI software from AutoDesk) as a software demonstrator for a number of years before taking up a position with University Concordia in Monteal, Canada. It’s great to hear about the efforts of those passionate about stop motion from around the world.
