At Stoopid Buddy’s School for Stop-Motion and Awesomeness (it’s a working title…) we want to train you to become the best stop-motion animator to soon rock the industry!
That’s right, the Stop-Motion Character Animation classes are BACK at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, and we’re now taking applicants! So if you’re looking to animate like the best of ’em, now’s your chance! This is the perfect opportunity for those looking to start their journey on the path to becoming a stop-motion master.
Taught by Alex Kamer, the Animation Director on shows like Robot Chicken, SuperMansion, and Buddy Thunderstruck, you’ll learn the fundamentals of stop-motion animation that will help you in becoming a full-fledged animator. After our classes, you’ll have all the skills that Stoopid Buddy Stoodios animators use at your disposal! Over the course of 8 classes, you’ll learn:
Principles of character animation
How to use Dragonframe
Animating action-figures and eventually puppets created by our fabricators

Without someone in IT making sure all of our computers are running at their computey-est, we’d just be a bunch of animators, producers, directors, and whatnot playing with puppets. And while that all sounds awesome, it’s not very lucrative.
That’s where Chester Lee comes in! Whenever we’re about to throw in the towel and spend $6,000 on a shiny new computer, Chester kicks down the door, makes things happen, and we get to save six G’s. He makes our hearts flutter. Because of his tireless efforts, Chester gets to walk away as the Stoopid Buddy Spirit of the Stoodio for July.
And now… the customary poem:
No orator, no speaker could ever debate,
The fact that this Buddy is truly first-rate!
Mr. Foodie, Mr. Fixit, The wind beneath our SolarWinds,
So many monikers we would never rescind.
To be sure it takes a lot of cunning,
To keep all our technology running.
So, let’s give a big thank you, a hurrah filled with glee!
To our Spirit of the Stoodio: Well done, Chester Lee!

And of course, a major shout out to the crew who worked so hard on making these projects a reality. They’re what keep the wheels spinnin’ and allow us to keep cranking out such amazing work.
Straight up, we’re excited as all get out for the upcoming flick Ready Player One. We’re not gonna sugar coat it. Seriously, why do that when you can charbroil it instead?
