Video Editor Rick Ponte is a huge fan of stop motion action movies, especially a particularly action-packed short film by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, called 'Micro Mayhem.' Stoopid Buddy Stoodios describes itself as an "artist-friendly collective," and 'Micro Mayhem' reflects this collectivist mentality. Its bizarre camera angles and Oscar-worthy animation demonstrates an incredible effort put forth by several talented animators. "That's what I did when I was younger, so that's why I find it interesting," Rick explains, referring to his hobby of creating stop motion LEGO films as a kid, which has since blossomed into a successful young career.

As a Trend Hunter Video Editor, Rick works every day to bring sleek and exciting videos to the THTV audience, while "learning about cool and interesting things and meeting awesome new people," according to Rick. Stats for Functional Miniaturization Trending: Older & Mild
