VALE – Award-winning animator Teresa Drilling shared her stop-motion animation talents with students and aspiring film makers earlier this month at the Vale city library.

The program was sponsored by the Drexel Foundation and the Libraries of Eastern Oregon.

Numerous young Drexel Foundation award-winning filmmakers attended, along with students from Vale High School teacher Kacie Shaffer’s art class, and local adult filmmakers.

Drilling’s program covered a range of topics, discussing the differences between live-action and stop-action animation, the roots of special effects, fundamentals of pixilation and other production matters.
