I’ve been a fan of animator Kris Hofmann’s stop motion work since seeing her true lives of the animals we eat piece Breakfast a couple years ago. Her new piece Screwed Up is a charming film about not knowing a good thing until it’s gone, which stars a nut and a bolt. Kris joins me to discuss scaring children (and angering parents) with the truth and how animation is a the perfect cure for a broken heart.
I like to work with objects. I like to give life to objects.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
