Tony - Animator

The Jolly RogersComment

Today, we met a professional animator. We made our own animation and it was really fun. We learnt that practise makes perfect because he said that when he was younger he wasn't very good at drawing but because he liked it he kept on drawing.

My animation was about a super hero that had shape-changing powers. She changed into a car and the back round was green. We had to draw our characters by ourselves. It was a really fun day because we got to make our own animation and we completed the animation on our own. My favourite part was when we were drawing and thinking about what we were going to do for our animation and how we were going to do that. It was really fun because we don't get to do this loads and today was my first time creating an animation. I hope we get to do this again one day.
