I have been doing this by hand for my entire life – now I feel like an idiot.
Forget the Air Swimmers of the last post, now I want one of these:
I have to make a choice sometime soon – do I get an iPhone4 now or do I wait for the (unannounced, possibly mythical) iPhone5?
It turns out that what I really want is one of these:
Not sure I can get work to spring for one though.
OK, it’s an ad but this short animation from Aardman is very well done.
The “making of” video is also worth a look, although it must be the first behind-the-scenes featurette that features more product placement than the main feature (a Nokia N8 you say? Tell me more…) but it shows the effort they went to.
Here is our entry for the 2011 48 Hour Film Competition:

The reviews were not kind, but everyone had fun making it. The elements this year were a character called Bobby Young, the dialog “What have you got”, a piece of bent wire, and the film had to end on a freeze frame. Our genre was “Road Movie”, to be honest I think we ended up with more of a revenge film (one of the other genres) but I think we got in enough travel to make it count.
My contribution was mainly as the camera operation, although I helped write the original script and directed the odd scene. It is my fault that Bobby is out of focus in the last scene – hi-def video is unforgiving.
