Knocking on Animation's Door
Updated: Oct 11
Ever since I stuck my baby toe in stop motion animation earlier this year, I've been itching to try digital animation. It can't be that hard, can it? I mean, #1, everything is automated now and #2, look at Beavis and Butthead back in the day. Come on! I can do that!
As usual, my optimism sends me on a path that I'm not fully conditioned for - into a pool that's significantly over my head.
From script idea to Zoom recording, from Illustrator to Apple Motion, Knocking on Animation's Door chronicles my rocky ride as I try to make a character named Esmerelda move.
Could I at least get her to blink? Please?
Thank you to my friends, actresses Keri, Louise, Mia, and Julia who came out to play on a sunny Saturday morning. I really [will] er [plan to] er [hope to] er, cross my fingers that I can finish this project. Some day.
I have a renewed respect for this hilarious show.
