Last week Friday the extension group were introduced to Ali, Maka and Nils. They are the animators for Bro Town, a comedy cartoon film. They came to our school to teach us about animating in the 1900 and so on. One of the activities that we learnt about was a Zoetrobe.
But before we even got our hands on anything we had to practise how to tween ( draw in the middle of two lines). At first it was easy but as we went the lines seemed to be getting more out control. It took me a while to get used to it.
After a couple more exercises we all got handed two strips of paper and a template of a moving jellyfish. On the template of the moving jellyfish there were two lines a red and blue we had to find the middle and draw a line in between.
At the end of the lesson we had been given a Zoetrobe for ourselves and had to to draw our own animation like the jelly fish.
