Sprucing Up the Stopmotion Movie Site

I realized that my website resource for making Stopmotion Movies had a bunch of dead links and dead videos, so I spent some time this week making sure links worked and that old resources were replaced with new ones, etc. Check out the Making Stopmotion Movies site.
