Adventures in Animation

September 17th, 2009 by Dayna

A few weeks ago, I got a call to do some animation on the Nintendo DSI.   It has an animation program called Flipnote Studio, which is pretty darn cool.  It allows you to animate frame by frame directly into the unit, using the pen and drawing on the screen.  It’s nothing complicated, and anybody can have a little fun with it.   This had to be one of the most interesting and fun client requests ever, especially given the quick turnaround.   You’ll find the finished piece in the spot above.  It was created for a new show called Nintendo Week, found on the Nintendo Channel.   I did the second animation with the horse on the DSI shown by Alison.  About one minute in.
