Notes from the Box?

Some of you out there in stopmo-land may remember a very inspirational blog that vanished from the web a year or so ago. Yes I am speaking of course about "Notes from the Box" which was the passionately keyed stopmo ramblings of animator Misha Klein. Well- for anyone out there that might be wondering, the blog may be gone but Misha's project (previous known as "Bad Bullets") is in full production. What started in his little one room studio in San Francisco years back is now nearing completion in another cramped box here in Los Angeles. I've seen some of the most recent shots and all I can tell you is that fans of stop-motion are in for a treat. Misha is crossing over into some juicy acting zones- and really putting it all into the performance. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mish- check out the teaser scene for his film.

This is an old picture Misha sent me when he was working in his San Francisco studio. The reading has paid off- he is definately following "The Way of the Actor". Keep rockin' it Mish!

Hi Aaron-

Misha does all his camera by hand, incrementally moving it on a gear head which allows movement in all directions- pretty amazing stuff!

thanks for the plug, e!
I have about 3-4 shots left. I will be working for the next 2 weeks. Then I move to Portland and begin work on the sound. I think we are looking at a 2008 festival curcuit.
