Tony - Animator

The Jolly RogersComment

Today, a man called Tony came in to talk to us about his job as an animator and how he got into animation. He then showed us an animated music video he created with video game music.

He got us to make our own animation with an application (an ‘app’) using a stop motion camera. First, we had to draw and cut out our character. Next, we stuck them onto an A4 green screen and we animated it. My animation was about a person who could control time.
