Hi! My name is Stan, and I like to draw spaceships.



I'm a freelance animator and storyboard artist living in Los Angeles that also happens to be completely obsessed with and fascinated by space exploration. Making these animated videos is a way for me to share the things I've learned over the years, while learning things about space travel in the process. Right now, I'm making these videos entirely by myself (I record the audio with a blanket draped over my head at my home office).

I'd like to make a lot more videos, explaining things like Hohmman transfers and laser propulsion and the construction techniques of O'Neill cylinders. I want to make long form videos (2-3 minutes) that explain a general idea, and short form videos (30 seconds) that cover a single word, like "ballistics" or "reaction control".

Just to be super clear, I'm going to keep making these no matter what.

With your help, I can spend more time doing this, and with enough help, I could hire an in-betweener (or two!) to produce even more of these videos. With a LOT of help, I would produce short films exploring under-represented but nevertheless important themes and ideas in science fiction (think the big ideas, the Clarkian stuff!)

Your pledge gets charged when I make ONE NEW new full length (2-3 Minute) video, or when I make FOUR 30 second videos.

I'd like to forge partnerships with educators and organizations like the National Space Society or the Smithsonian (working on it, will give updates) - so that teachers can use these videos in their lesson plans!

Anyway, I love space, I love education, and I love animation.

Much love,

Hire an In-Betweener!
I make the key frames, an in-betweener makes the... in-between frames. Reduces production time significantly, OR increases production quality as I can shoot for more ambitious visuals! This would also potentially leave a bit of money to bring on other artists for key work, like 3D modeling.
