Discovery: I like making sketched animations

So I spent Monday figuring out how to create three simple narrated one-minute sketch animations. My clients loved the videos, so this evening I finished three more in the course of about two and a half hours. I’d already written the script and thought about the storyboard. Today was just about recording the narration, cleaning it up, drafting the sketch, tracing over it with Artrage Studio Pro, processing the Artrage script file with Emacs, and synchronizing the images with audio using Windows Movie Maker. 45-60 minutes per finished video minute is pretty workable. :)

No public samples yet, but I’m delighted to have a good workflow, and I’m looking forward to putting together some personal animations after this. It’ll be fun!

Level up. :)
