My grandson was very interested in how animations are made and so we spent some time putting together an animation using his toys at the time. It was a great experience for both him and me as we decided together what we were going to have the characters in the 'lady-dino' segment actually do. The pig segment was just to show him the results of making an inanimate object appear to move through stop motion. The last segment (dino appearing to talk) was done next to show him how to make things look like they are doing more than just moving. The mid segment was the final segment done showing Lady being chased around a wooden track. I would suggest that everyone do something like this with their kids and grandkids. It is so much fun. Sometime in the future we may decide to put audio to the video. That will be another learning experience for all of us. Hope you enjoy the visuals.
