Stoopid Monkey's youtube channel

Last week saw the announcement and commencement of a new youtube channel created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich; Stoopid Monkey.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to animate a little on Stoopid Monkey over at Buddy System Studios. The Buddies have been exploring and perfecting a unique style of animation using paper-doll-like puppets shot on a downshooter green screen and composited with live action - see their Soulja Boy animation.
