Animation project, Part I

For a few weeks now I’m working on a music video that’s animated. I use Creative Commons “Attribution” images as backgrounds, and then I animate the action by hand, frame by frame. I bought a Wacom tablet, and I do all the sketching on it and Photoshop. I used to sketch a lot when I was a kid, and I’m considerably good with it, but I have never done any animation work before. There’s a steep learning curve, but I learn as I go along. So far I have finished animating 16 seconds out of the 2:55 song. I estimate that the video will be ready sometime in May. I work on it a few hours a day.
