Golden Age of Insect Aviation: The Great Grasshoppers
from Wayne Unten
"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.
