A Hilary Project

Hilary shared with us her first animation project, so I thought I'd share it with you.  It's a "cut-out" project - which is self-explanatory when you watch the 10 second clip.  Every movement involved moving the position of the pieces, taking a picture, moving the pieces, taking a picture, etc. and then putting it all together.  She said it was a lot of work and took a long time, but she had fun.  I think she did a great job!

Hilary also said it's starting to get cold and she's having to wear lots of layers - a new experience for an Arizona girl (considering it was 102 degrees here last weekend).  Hilary says she's looking forward to snow.  I'm pretty sure come February or March, she'll be sick of that snow she thinks she is looking forward to. She's anxious to come home for Thanksgiving though - she's tired of cafeteria food!

The kids are back in school after being on Fall break for two weeks.  I'm sure it won't be long before we are "hit" with H1N1.  We managed to get through last year with no flu for any of us. I'm not optimistic that we'll  have the same luck this year.  Part of me just wants to get the dang thing and get it over with!

As of now .... all is well. Thanks for checking in my friends.

I am impressed with Hilary's project. How fun for her to be entering that field and learning all the tricks of the trades. I wonder if she'll get to do pop up books, too. I love pop up books! Too cool.

Neat-O! Does using One true media work well with Blogger? I've never tried it. Here's hoping you all stay well.

Very well done Hilary! It sounds like she's having a great college experience. It's bad cafeteria food part of the experience? I know what you mean about H1N1. It does seem like it would be easier to just get it and be done. I guess most people would think we're crazy for thinking that way. But at least then the fear of catching it would be over.

Very impressive Hilary, she has beautiful drawing skills.

I agree, just wish i could get the flu and then forget about it!
