Loriesque Studio Q&A

What Kind of Stop-motion do you make?

I love sculpting in clay, creating miniatures, and puppets and filming in stop-motion. I have a handful of puppets that star in my videos. I sculpt claymation style which means I film frame by frame while sculpting with modeling clay to create facial movement or walking cycles. I create miniature sets and props. I have all sorts of film ideas yet to be created.

Here's some recent characters and my art style and projects from Instagram.

Why stopmotion?

I call this my passion project. Because I'm passionate about it, and I spent years thinking about how cool it would be if I had the time to devote to such a patient art form. Then that longing stirred me one day to just go for it. I love sculpting, I love miniatures, I love making tiny things! And now I can make them come alive! Spending time in my studio tinkering and creating is so fulfilling, I feel like I can really submerge myself in my art.

What are you currently working on?

My most recent project features cute, little, rainbow colored monsters I've been practicing claymation emotions in small repeating videos on posted social media. One night I came up with a strange little tale to tell with these silly things and I hope to progress more this coming month.

Featured colorful monsters in upcoming short film.
