There’s An Easier Way

Stop motion is tough. Most people don’t do it because you’re forced to tediously take picture after picture. Not anymore.

With Locomotion, you just record a video of your scene, moving your characters and their environment (just take your hands and self out of the camera frame after each pose). Then add your video to the Locomotion App, and it’ll do the work of making a beautiful stop motion video.

About Me


I started apprenticing for my dad, Peter Sweeney, Jr. when I was twelve, but even before that I was watching him work all the time. My grandpa established our company in 1918, back when we specialized in carpentry and woodwork. Dad picked up new trades and expanded our business. I’ve been servicing the greater Wichita area for over 15 years and am about to bring my oldest son in as an assistant.

Stop motion animation is cool partly because it’s insanely hard to make.

It’s the worst way to make a movie. It makes no sense. You’re cutting your hands and contorting your body. But it’s an incredible art form that is so rare and so beautiful.

Stop motion is nightmarish. It takes so much more effort and time, as each movement has to be adjusted for in sometimes ridiculously small intervals. Now granted, you can end up with fewer frames per second in stop motion, but it’s still insane.
