It's funny you should show this Sak, because I'm in the second class of animation now. Please tell me the truth it gets harder? And are you doing an animation like the old snow white version, where you draw frames and animate them on a painted scene?

It gets very hard. I've done traditional animation using a lightbox but I now animate digitally using a new program called TVPaint 10 Pro, which we have access to at college. You can get a better idea of the sort of thing I'm doing if you go to my Youtube account and check my Animations playlist, linked in my ID Information.

Ah, I see. I'm just about to use a lightbox desk myself, I've never heard of TVPaint 10 pro. On the opinion of a fresh animator, Would you prefer lightbox, or Digital?

It takes twice as long for me to draw anything digitally compared to traditionally, but it's much easier to check timing and to alter scale or composition digitally, because you can skip the entire scanning-and-compiling stage.

I understand, scanning is just a pain even if you just want to upload one picture. Thank you for answering my questions, I can't wait for the full animated film to come out, I watched all your animations and I thoroughly enjoyed them all.

Now I'm not so sure I want to animate anymore...

JK.

I'd love to animate, but unfortunately I suck at drawing. I'll still give it a shot at some point.

SOOOOOOOO true! When I was studying animation the animators were all on one floor of the school and we were known for looking like like zombies...and smelling like them.

It was in Florida and there would be freak storms which would cause power outages and every time the building went dark there was wailing, gnashing of teeth, slamming of heads on tables, and weeping all followed by a dead eyed shuffle of the hopeless souls who hadn't been saving regularly.

Oh good lord. ;___; I feel their pain. My PC all-out froze a few days ago, but since living in India for a year (blackouts every 10-20 minutes on the worst of days) I've grown accustomed to saving like a maniac. I only lost one frame.

It's a deent flick. My advice, watch the movie and then read the book. The film is a great starting point anthe book relly opens up the mythology (I know a mythology for zombies, go figure)
