Day 29 Hello operator, again...

Hey Bud, Well I actually accomplished something today. Unfortunately Vimeo takes forever to upload a :02 sec video. Hopefully, it will be ready before I go to work in an hour.

I chose Vimeo because the quality is better and I didn't want to load my animation tests on YouTube. Too visible, too soon. I thought about Vine, but timing those loops really pisses me off. I have yet to figure that out. Grrrrrr!!!

The hard part of being creative with digital media is the learning curve. After nearly 2 weeks of being away from Flash animation, I lost what little skills I had. It's slowly coming back now.

Anyways, I know I'm going about this "Hello Operator" piece all wrong. I'm supposed to create an animatic first, but whatevs. I want to learn what strikes me interesting. So, on with the fun stuff of drawing characters and making them say something. It's really fun working with Flash because I can cheat like crazy! No one will ever know. Hehehe.

I think I'm gonna continue my end of our blog experiment a little longer. It really helps me move things along. It would be cool to have some kind of body of work by the end of the summer. We'll see.

So here's the video, don't blink or you'll miss it. Quick tip: After you click play, move the mouse away from the viewfinder so you can see everything in frame.

Love you Bud!!
