animation trials

So, my proposal for this project was that I’d collect a few stories about their imaginary friends and create an animation based on their descriptions. Then I’d ask them where they’d like to see their imaginary friend and project the animation in that location.

I came into various external and internal difficulties:

– It was hard getting the kids to commit to a meeting time especially when they hadn’t finished their homework or projects.

– Children get sick.

– Laptops never have enough memory and eventually crash unexpectedly.

– Flash is awesome, but sucks when it must close unexpectedly.

Anyhow, the following is documentation of an animation I was able to restore.

This one almost didn’t show up at all.

This one is better projected, but it looks more distorted in the quicktime.

These following videos are of the animations alone, not projected.

I’m still trying to recover the squirrel animation, but the first time I projected it, it didn’t come through. I’m going to switch projectors next time. I don’t think this one was ideal for this project.
