PEDAL TO THE METAL

bang bang

I animate fast. My animation is nowhere near the best you’ll ever see but I can really crank out the frames. I’ve been doing this for almost 40 years so I don’t really think too much (it can only hurt the ball club) I just go. It’s not that I’ve lost my patients for this, far from it; I’ve just had a lot of practice. On HIVE I switched from shooting 24 fps to 15 fps which made things a lot easier. 9 fewer frames a second is a huge time saver and truth be told, the average viewer really can’t tell the difference. I’m not trying to compete with computer animation here for god sake; I’m just a guy making a film in my basement. I no longer look beyond that fact and I’m much happier for it. Now if you’ll excuse me, my lights are warmed up and I’m going to whip off a couple of shots.
