Marc Spess is an expert in the field of stop motion and clay animation


Background Information

My main motivation behind Secrets of Clay Animation Revealed and my business "Animate Clay" is to bring the art form to every day people. With the power of the internet anyone can learn what used to be so hard to find information about. I started out watching a lot of TV commercials that came out of Will Vinton Studios in the late 80's. A lot of people will tell you they were inspired by King Kong or Ray Harryhausen. For me it was those quirky and crazy clay characters such as the Dominoes Noid, California Raisins and the KFC chicken spots. After high school I quickly got work for John Lemmon Films, and then Webster Colcord Studios in Portland. I learned the craft from them as well as my contacts at Will Vinton Studios. Mike McKinney and John Ashlee aren't names you hear on TV, but those two guys taught me so much and I'm really greatful. If I hadn't met them I never would have such an in depth understanding of puppet making and animation like I do now.

Accomplishments

Have worked on TV commercials for the Cartoon Network, Warner Brothers, the Henry Cycle project and more. I also have created several short films and have made many instructional videos which have sold throughout the world.

Additional Information

If you really want to keep up with what's going on I write news about stop motion and clay animation each week for my web site.
