The camera is packed up. The last set has been dismantled and the animation table is empty. It took just over 13 months to complete the animation on FROM HELL HE RIDES. There’s a sense of disorientation that comes with doing something for that long and then going cold turkey. Stop motion is not something that can be done in little bits, especially when you’re trying to shoot a 15 minute film. Blocks of consecutive hours need to be allocated and now that it’s over, the days feel very different.
