Sam sez, "I was the lead designer for the show Archer on FX and left it in pursuit of doing some of my own projects and one of those is helping with the teaching of animation.
So where I am at there seems to be a lot of confusion on how animation works, I have decided to make an interactive zoetrope with little 3d sculptures that should help the people around here learn a little about the mechanics, or nuts and bolts of animation.
Cory's posts on Boing Boing have inspired me down the road of 3D printing exploration which has really been great for this project.
I call it tactile animation, being able to take 2D ideas and bring them into 3D actuality it will help students of animation learn the concepts and principles of animation in a way that is not so abstract.
When I am totally finished with the project I will have plans on the site so people can make their own."

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]

All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
