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.”
“StopMotionAnimation.com was launched in April 1999. Since then, it has become a popular meeting place for aspiring animators. If you are new to stop-motion, be sure to read THE STOP-MOTION HANDBOOK. There are several chapters which address many of the basic questions you might have.
You will find even more information scattered around on the MESSAGE BOARD which is the true heart of StopMotionAnimation.com. Most who are new to Stop-Motion usually visit NEWBIE CORNER. If you need something more specific, click on one of the many other forums such as ANIMATION DEPARTMENT, PUPPETMAKING, MINIATURES AND SET BUILDING, SPECIAL FX, STOP-MOTION IN FILM or BULLETIN BOARD. To help you understand how to use the Message Board, there is a QUICK START GUIDE for new members and a FAQ.”
