Today’s Animation A Day video was made using cut out construction paper.
Three 12-year old girls created this during one of our workshops. My favorite part is the strangeness of a cat having laser eyes. With the sound effects, it makes me smile every time.
You will notice while the camera stays stationary, the background sheet of construction paper moves a lot. That’s why it is important to limit the amount of objects moved by accident while animating. Small movements show up exaggerated in the final video.
Also, I would have liked the video be a little longer. With the limitation of time during the workshop, I understand only being able to take 20 – 30 photos.
Other than the background movement and shortness, the video is fantastic!
