My first animation with sound.

This animation project has been a great adventure for me. It was just a straight forward doing and learning. I liken it to walking through a maze blindfolded. Of course, because I have a little experience with animation, perhaps I peeked here or there.

I explored three frontiers in the making of this video; Adobe Animate, placing sound in my animation, and a Huion digital drawing tablet. Animate is an animation program and I am like a kid in a candy store in there! Oh, the wonders…the wonders I have seen! At first, I was a bit bedazzled and confused, but soon, I was humming right along. My next challenge was to place sound in my animation. I had never done that before, but because of my enthusiasm for the task at hand, and the ease of working in Animate, I made short work of it. And to wrap things up, my brand new digital drawing tablet was instrumental in the creation of the video. With this technology, I can draw in the computer! That eliminates three steps: sketching on paper, inking, scanning. An incredible time saver.

I suspect you don’t believe that I did this just for the fun of it. You would be correct in your suspicion, for I have created this video as part of a new Fiverr Gig! You give me the name of the Birthday Person and I will hand-write the name and place it in the video. If you know anybody who is having a birthday this year, this will make a great gift!

“Make it so.”

If you were truly paying attention, you would know that this is the image for The Play Game #1. To be fair, this was recently added. It is a caricature of Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Those of you who are fans of Star Trek, The Next Generation will find the following video unbelievably hilarious! All others will deem it stupid.

By the way, this is a wedding gift for my niece and her new husband. This is a caricature of Carmen and Eddy “floating” over a background scene of The Gilmore Car Museum, which was the location of their wedding.
