Stop Motion Animation as an Art Form

 Since the beginning of filmmaking stop motion animation has been the go to for the artistic expression of classic films. Its charm and wonder is in everything from commercials, television shows, and feature films, to the classic visual effects that are beloved by so many. In todays society of high tech computer graphic engineering it's important to keep perspective of both modern and classic techniques along with recognizing that those classical artistic techniques are not out of date and are yet still very much relevant.

What is Stop Motion Magazine 

Stop Motion Magazine is one of the very rare publications in the world that focuses on an art form that can use every artistic method known to man. This little publication which has been published since 2009 takes its readers deep behind the scenes where they can get an up close and personal look at films and production both big and small. Stop Motion Magazine is a valuable resource to artists all over the world as a source of reference for their own productions, as an educational supplement, and as a source of news for what is going on in the industry. The magazine is produced as a quarterly publication that is available in both print and digital versions. We also produce stopmotionmagazine.net which is the magazines website with up to date information, news, and entertainment. 

Fundraising for 2017

 We are running our Stop Motion Magazine 2017 KickStarter campaign to keep the lights on and the wheels turning while we continue production of the magazine. With your support we will be able to publish the magazine in 2017 and provide you with one of the most comprehensive animation publications in the world. The artists that have been featured in Stop Motion Magazine are a very diverse group of people from all over the world. Some of them are world famous and some of them are just artists wanting to share their favorite medium with the world. Unlike larger publications this little magazine doesn't have the luxury of accepting print subscribers year round. To be able to determine our publishing needs and budget for the year we need to run these type of campaign drives to insure that the magazine stays alive. Kind of like how Public Television runs a campaign to keep their lights on. Your contribution no matter how big or small will insure that we are able to stay in print for the 2017 calendar year. So please contribute if you can.

Risks and challenges

Throughout the history of the magazine which started in 2009, we've faced many challenges. We are currently wrapping our 2016 perk delivery by the end of January. So we are starting this Stop Motion Magazine KickStarter 2017 now since we need to keep the ball rolling. One thing has always been certain and that is you have to overcome every obstacle and be as open as possible with your readers.
