These two weeks we learnt to make an animation, we learnt how to use iMovie and istopmotion. Before we start our own story we got a practise is to draw a circle and it have to show the movement.
I did not have any experience of drawing by hand before, I have just did on Flash and Alice they both are drawing in computer so this is my first time to draw movement. And my feeling is very difficult and I respect the people who did animation.
After that we have to start thinking our story, I have to think a new story due to the story of the story book is too difficult to me therefore, I want to design a story which is very simple and with simple shape. I decided to draw by hand so it is a bit rush and finally, my is life cycle.
After decided this theme I start to draw my story, in the process I change again and again I can say it is not fun for a person who does not good at drawing. Finally, all my drawing are done but I still have not finish due to it is animation so I have to put them into the computer. I use Adobe Capture(This software is very useful ) to take every single picture then I put them in iMovie into the right order after just put some sound effect and music that’s it.

After the presentation I have told that there is something have to change and improve. Like there are not enough information in my animation because I did not put any word on it except title, also some of the frame are too long it seem a bit time-consuming. I agree of those suggestion but honestly I quite please of my work because that is my first animation, that’s not too bad even it still got a lot of things have to change.
In conclusion, I have learnt a lot of very new thing, before it start I did not interested in making animation but after this two weeks I am a bit interested in hope I can have more fun on it in the future.
I improve more after got the feedback, I remove some of the films made it be a bit shorter and also I put some text on it in order to show more information about the story. On the other hand, I did change some of the audio effect and I have make sure when I export the music are in. The animation before the improve didn’t have music on and it was because of the some mistake when I saved it went something wrong so the music was gone.
Here is my animation:
