Animator/Model Maker Charlotte Blacker got in touch last night with a link to a new video that she's just completed for CASPAR BABY PANTS - the kindie alter-ego of Chris Ballew, leader of THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ''We had 2 months to knit and build the puppets as well as animate and edit the piece together,'' said Blacker of the new video. ''We had a lot of fun working on this.'' Check out ''Stompy the Bear'' from the album HOT DOG! below.

Charlotte also created an award-winning short last year entitled THE LITTLE RED PLANE, which will be screened at an upcoming installment of the Seattle Children's Film Festival, where Blacker will host a Children's Stop-Motion Workshop. Check that one out right here:
