Young Guns 17 Winners

2019: In a year that could arguably be described as the most diverse class in Young Guns history, a jury of more than 60 respected creatives — half of them past Young Guns winners themselves — spent two months reviewing hundreds of submissions from a record 45 different countries. 

After several rounds of judging, which narrowed down the vast pool of talent to a finalist list of 81 creatives, the jury debated, discussed and ultimately selected 28 superstars to be part of Young Guns 17. This year's class runs across a wide variety of disciplines, and with only three YG17 winners being American-born, the global nature of this accolade is becoming even greater.

My stop motion philosophy is based on bringing emotion to every scene, which allows the audience to connect easily. I'm passionate about this business, and am constantly working to inspire younger people to embrace this amazing art. My personal projects reach a wide audience, while my client work allows me to push the boundaries of what can be done with stop motion.
