Waddle*



Ooh, I don't know which I'm more excited about -- this awesome book Ro borrowed from the library, or the fact that I just learnt to make a tiny mini-movie! With sound!

Anyone who knows me knows what a technophobe I am, so humble and unsophisticated as this little filmlet may be, it's a gigantically huge achievement for me haha.. I'd actually just filmed the book, but then I couldn't help feeling it would be much, much nicer with music. And it was, which just confirms how very important a movie's score is!

As for the book, it's Waddle, by Rufus Butler Seder. It uses Scanimation, a six-phase animation process, which was created by Seder. Going through the book, you feel a curious "antiquated" sensation, as if you were viewing the images through a Victorian kinetoscope. Seder has several titles in this series; check one out at your local library today!

Have a dreamy, creative weekend everyone :)

* Wonderfully, despite the fact that hordes of other people use and upload the same piece of music on Youtube with no problem, my video had to be the one that gets blocked in certain countries. I'd originally used a recording of me playing Comptine D'un Autre Ete, but have now replaced it with Carly Comando, a distinctly better musician haha.. Thanks to everyone who let me know they couldn't play the original video :)

I love this! It really does have the feeling of a bygone era. I take my hat off to you, I definitely couldn't have made a video LOL

Hurray, it plays now ! :) It is lovely and you did a fantastic job on your very first mini-movie. I just wish I could have heard the version in which the music was preformed by you. :)

So cute! And so awesome that you've learned to do this. I still haven't attempted to create a movie.

Well done on the movie, something I have no idea how to do - yet! Mr M

I love Seder's books! I have all of them---and I am delighted as a child when I look through them. I like your movie...and the music, though I wish I could have heard your version. :-)
