Thesis (M.F.A.)--Rochester Institute of Technology, 2010
My thesis film, "Mashed", was created with multiple purposes in mind. I wanted to use and build on everything I learned at RIT, entertain both young and old audiences, and support my belief that shooting mediums should be a choice tailored to fit the needs and purposes of a character in a film. Popular trends in animation and visual effects sometimes overshadow the fact that technological advancements benefit more than just computer-generated graphics. Convincing stop-motion characters (and characters of other mediums) can benefit from these same advancements, and even coexist with multiple other styles within the same frame
My film is framed in a situation familiar to nearly everyone. It uses three major characters to tell its story, each of which is photographed separately using different filmmaking techniques. I have a real boy shot on HD video, a mashed potato monster brought to life with stop-motion animation, and a television super-hero created using computer-generated images. This production required three very distinct pipelines, each of which presented its own batch of challenges and adventures. The results were blended together into a film that I hope will not stand out as an attempt to mix media, but rather as a well-told story that was made using wise choices to create the strongest, most believable characters possible out of what was written on the page
