The San Francisco Stop-Motion Animation Conservatory & Kollective engages people in the creative experience. More specifically, the very unique creative experience of creating real physical animations from scratch. We are the region’s preeminent proponent of this art-form and Stop-Motion Animation education, expression, and appreciation. Our membership is comprised of all ages, abilities, and economic and cultural backgrounds. Centrally located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, SF S.M.A.C.K. aims to provide a headquarters for all things related to the traditional Stop-Frame Animation format.

Calling all Artists, Animators, Technicians, Artisians, Craftspeople, Voice and Physical Performers and any serious fans of the more "Traditional" as well as the more "Bleeding Edge" forms of animation. Held in an actual working Stop-Motion and Post-Production facility. We will be covering small-scale cinematography, lighting, puppet, set, and animation techniques; holding screenings of animation; holding workshops & ultimately co-creating events that push the boundaries of these artforms. This Meetup group will be headquartered at Dream Conduit Studios. Innovators and those who think outside the box, especially those who tend to prefer the company of puppets over people, finally have a home. Anyone interested in being a part of shaping the evolution of this group is welcome to contact the organizers.
