Tom and I (Mike) were 13 years old in 1992 when we stayed up most of the night experimenting with stop motion animation.
We were using my parents Video 8 camcorder and hitting the record button twice fast to try and get as many individual frames per second as we could.
Hours after starting, we watched the playback and were amazed to see our toys come alive.
I later experimented more on my own using clay characters in different settings.
This was the very beginning of my filmmaking adventures.
