The animation process

so I am supposed to explain my process of making my film. Well, let's see, first off I did not use key frame animation, I used the puppet technique to animate everything. I had a LOT of symbols, let me tell you... it got a little confusing after a while trying to keep everything organized. To make sure that everything was consistent, I made one symbol where it had every body part together so I knew what it would look like once I dragged it on the screen. I did my backgrounds in photoshop, and I wanted to do my characters that way too, but they looked so choppy and messy that I decided to forgot all that hassle and just do the rest in flash. I re-used some animation, especially the rabbit's jumping cycle, as well as the girl. I had two running cycles made for Sophie and I didn't really like the second one so I mainly used the first one. I didn't want my backgrounds to be super complex because I thought that would take away from the two characters, so I kept things simple. This is the longest animated anything I've done, and I'm really happy with it. I think we all did a great job. There's some real talented people here, let me tell ya :)
