Cooking is a favorite hobby and if I wasn't in video production I would either own a restaurant or a movie theater. Actually the movie theater, though it would be a very old-fashioned set up with soda jerks and balconies. One screen would be reserved for classics at all times.

Christmas is also another favorite hobby of mine as I've created a display with over 50 characters from the Grinch to Charlie Brown to Calvin & Hobbes. All handmade, though recently it's been vandalized so many times, we keep the characters inside during the holidays now.

Animation
by Thomas Morter-Laing
Hey Walther,
I saw some of the animation on your site (really good stuff- nice work! :D) Just out of interest do you use motion for your animation? It's something I feel I should get into more to enable me to be more employable as well as everything else! But so far my experience with motion has been for totally different things (rotorscoped titles and a few special effects etc)- is it quite easy (ish) for an experienced motion user? Any good ways to start?

:D
