Talking Tigers

Today, the Computer Art class kicked off a lesson about animating dialog. What makes this project interesting is the email I received from Jordan Lane, a kindergarten teacher at Douglas Elementary Arts and Science Magnet in Raleigh. She asked if our class wanted to collaborate with her class. She had some tigers that needed animating.


Check back in about two weeks to see what these tigers will be talking about!

    1. we Used Photoshop to make the jpgs but i'm sure Gimp would work just as well. We did the animation in Flash. Here is video tutorial that explains how we did it for free --> http://vimeo.com/41308296
