Spotlight: FeedFeed + Figgy Pops Stop Motion

When it comes to making videos, stop-motion animation has long been my favorite of project to work on. I grew up in a Monty Python family, and I started making my own short films inspired by Terry Gilliam's work as soon as I had access to a video camera. With so much focus on stop motion animation in the online video world these days, it's been greatly satisfying to be able to make this hobby of mine a part of my career as a food stylist. Here's one of my favorite projects so far, a lush, detailed advertorial video for FeedFeed + Figgy Pops.

Resist Wings

Before you tune into what I'm told is a football game later today, take a minute to write or call your representatives and let them know what irks you. And then whip up these wings.

Blue Cheese Dip
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons mayonaise
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
chives, for serving

Combine in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Garnish with chopped chives.

4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup hot sauce, such as Franks
4 pounds chicken wings
Blue cheese, for serving

In a small bowl, whisk together butter and hot sauce. Pour half over chicken wings and toss to cover. Place wings on sheet pan and broil 15-20 minutes until golden, rotating and flipping wings to cook evenly. Transfer to serving platter and drizzle with reserved sauce. Top with with blue cheese and serve with blue cheese dip.
