WAKARUSA 2009 – Stay CURRENT w/ RFWtv

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

At Wakarusa Music Festival in Ozark, AR this 2009, RFWtv had a chance to meet a young artist by the name of Johnny.  In an ongoing process to bring Stop Motion Animation to the hands of any accessible person, The Edge of Imagination Station was a LARGE success by the attendees of the festival.  With plans to expand his station, introducing the craft to communities around the nation, Johnny is definitely a friend who we all should know.

As soon as they are uploaded, TheRFW.com will provide host to the collective stop motion animation videos handmade by the hipsters who danced and smiled at the Edge of Imagination Station in both the Revival and Outpost tents at Wakarusa 2009.

Stop Motion Animation on Wikipedia -

Stop motion (or frame-by-frame) is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small amounts between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames are played as a continuous sequence. Clay figures are often used in stop motion animations, known as claymation, for their ease of repositioning.”

Whether it is finding condiment distributors who use biodegradable packaging or a more efficient way to recycle, we want to hear what you have to say about making your experiences that much greener.
