HunterGatherer’s Signature Series for Fuel
Q&A with Todd St. John, HunterGatherer:
1. The Fuel Signature Series is pretty wide-open, allowing artists a blank canvas to express themselves and sign their own name. What was your process for coming up with the idea for this piece?
2. Stylistically, this piece is similar to your work for the Swerve Festival and the New York Times, is this technique of stop-motion with wooden blocks a process that you particularly enjoy? Can you explain that working method a little bit?
3. Often stop-motion has a very static camera, since it’s complicated enough to move the objects in front of the camera. How did you manage the camera moves?
4. Did you draw or plan out the shots in this first? Was there an animated test? Or is it all done in front of the camera and edited together later?
Thanks, Todd. You can also catch a glimpse at some more behind-the-scenes here in a video that caught some of the making of this piece.
