Benefits of Entering a Contest / Win or Lose


 The winner of the Toon Boom Animated Valentine Contest was a teenage girl with Autism with an intense interest in Animation, lots of facebook friends who voted for her and great family support. This is a good thing.

Entering the Valentine Animation Contest had benefits for all contestants. For me the best parts are
  • Free Software, Flip Doodle Boom, an inexpensive software for teachers and kids enabling them to create short Animations with ease.
  • In this moment of great enthusiasm, I downloaded a free demo of another program called Animationish  which I LOVE because it is drawing based. So I purchased a copy for myself. It is worth every penny!
  • I know teachers would find it a great way to teach basic classical animation to young art students of all ages and it sells at a very reasonable price compared to expensive Toon Boom software products for professionals.
All is well. Here is what I made for you dear blog friends today. A one minute video using Animationish with images edited in Corel Painter and Corel Video Studio.
I call it  Happy Chickens. Do you think they might make a neat e-birthday card?
Oh! And don't miss Albert's smile at the end which is an experiment to see if you can import jpegs and png files into Animationish. And you can!
