Ahoy hoy!

Here you will find the work of stop motion animator/video editor Alex Kropinak. That’s me!

I graduated from Meadville, PA’s Allegheny College in 2007 with a B.A. in Art & Technology, with a focus on Stop-Motion Animation and Communication Arts.

In 2007, I was brought into the comic-book magazine company Wizard Entertainment in Congers, NY as an intern and later hired as a Video Editor and brought a few strips of ToyFare Magazine’s Twisted ToyFare Theater to life. In 2008, I moved to Marvel Entertainment and continued editing videos and co-created the Marvel.com stop motion web-series Marvel Super Heroes: What The–?!

In 2010, I left NY and moved back home to Pittsburgh, PA where I continue to animate and edit videos on a freelance basis for many clients including Marvel, Diamond Select Toys, Comic Book Resources, and more.

I have an embarrassingly large collection of action figures but at least I use some of them in my work in a somewhat productive way, right?
