The Making of Movies

As the deadline for my animation project is coming faster than a speeding bullet (I'm kidding, but really....) I've been spending quite a bit of time  in this exact place in my room.
I started out animating it all on the computer (After Effects cc 2015) but, alas, it was just looking wrong on the computer. The story line has a lot to do with the characters being "doodles" and when I would draw them on the computer, they just didn't look like doodles at all.
I switched to making it a chalk board animation, which is so so so much fun!!Now I get to work with my chalk board wall, rather than staring at the computer. So it all kinda works out:)
(P.S. the toilet paper roll is for erasing things...if you were wondering...which you probably weren't;P)

    1. Yes, animation is amazing, but it's as amazing as it is time consuming!
