Straight To Hell Returns stop-motion animation breakdown

Posted by Webster Colcord

In 2010 director Alex Cox ("Repo Man", "Sid & Nancy") contacted me to create two new stop-motion skeleton shots for his 80's film "Straight to Hell", which was getting some new VFX for a re-release.  After completing the shots, I pitched to him the idea of doing a third shot in stop-motion for a different part of the film.  This is a breakdown reel that explains the making of the three shots.  And thanks to my old pal Lionel Orozco for giving me a very kind write-up about this on his site:  Stopmotionworks
