I used a erase white board to draw the pictures. After I drew a picture, I would take a shot of it with a camera. (I made sure to not move my camera or the board so everything would line up from shot to shot.) After I took the picture, I had to erase and move something in the scene and take another shot. The road was the hardest. I had to erase all the cars and then draw different ones to make it look like it was moving. Sometimes I would have to redo a picture I drew because it didn't look right, so I had to be really patient. It was fun and it taught me a lesson; learning to be patient!
When it came to editing my Daddy and my brother helped me. I learned how to slow down the image on the computer for close-up views, and to speed it up on actions (like walking, running, the bus pulling up). We used a handy website that had sound effects, so I could add noises to my video. It was great fun!
It took about four days to make my movie. Calling my family into the living room, we watched gleefully, as the characters came to life and interacted with each other. I was happy to see my movie was a success! You can watch it below.
I think the two most important things to remember when making this film are (1) being patient, and (2) keeping a positive attitude. I feel I definitely reached that. Maybe there will be a sequel to come. Bye!
