There is no such thing as a solo project. This piece would be mediocre at best were it not for the advice and help of those more talented and experienced than I. Top-tier thanks goes to Phil Tippett, Chris Morley, and the rest of the Tippett Studio team for being the impetus for me to try my hand at this whole craft after years of just being a viewer.
Seattle artist, musician, and filmmaker Paul Lebel was unique in influencing everything from the production to the sound, and I am thankful for his advice and suggestions based on his wide-ranging experience in filmmaking, stop motion, and music.
I’m lucky enough to have made friends with some film sound professionals, and they lent their time and ears to provide honest, open feedback, which really made the soundtrack far stronger than what I could do on my own. Any sonic strength that this piece has is directly a result of their inspiration, advice, and insights. Deep aural gratitude goes out to Time Prebble, Shaun Farley, and Michael Raphael.
And my significant other, Krista, couldn’t have been more patient with this project taking over various portions of our home. Thanks for your love and understanding.
