Set to the music of Dave Gottlieb, this ten-second animation by Wayne Unten takes real footage of a grasshopper and professionally blends it with animation. I seriously hope he will consider doing more of these.
"In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."
While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.
This is one of many short animated clips I've made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series... who knows :)
It was my first project using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where's the fun in that?!) My work-in-progress can be found on my blog: animatingforfun.com.
