Definitely a worth checking it out.

Stop Motion - Occupation: Animator

Animators are a special breed of professionals. We draw our inspiration from the world around us.We don't see. We don't watch. We don't look. We OBSERVE. And we're always observing, always absorbing the different ways things move so we can apply them into our work, but with our own special touch.

Once you become an animator, life won't be the same. Images will become reference. Words will become ideas. Everything will become a potential animation.

She couldn't explain it better. Awesome work!
