Day to night...short animation...

I spent the afternoon working on some short animations I have had in my head for a while. When I figure out how I am going to put some music with these. I have a lot of video ideas... :) ... I think I might try to make one with a story. I have been working on some animations with music ideas in my head for quite a while these are my first attempts. Just took me about 2 hours to figure out how to get this video from my phone to my blog! Let me tell you modern technology and I do not always get a long...Unfortunately, the first one which I also think is the best one has my thumb in it!!!
I really used to like music videos. The first ones I saw were not great and, I didn't really have cable very often when I was young so, I didn't see that many. I also like classical music. And, have a theory that some classical music could really go with some great videos. I would like to combine the 2 the music I write is sort of a blues classical fusion. People who like blues say to me..."you are so good at classical music or, that is classical blues"  People who like classical say I am better at the blues. I have to say I think that my playing leans more to the classical. Also, I am a lot better at improvising or writing my own music then playing other peoples.
There are a lot of great animations and such on you tube. Also I recently discovered a guy called William Kentridge. You can see him on pbs a show called Art21. Anything is possible.
 I started thinking I wanted to make animations with music when I was in high school. I had a video camera with stop motion feature. My brother was playing with it while I was playing piano. The result was a strange and kind of funny video involving rocks with Mozart all mixed up in pieces in the back ground as a sound track. I was like we should make a whole bunch of those. I could write some music like that or some kind of music. Any way, I don't know what happened, got side tracked I guess...right now, I have a lot of time on my hands...so, this idea has sort of renewed itself. I guess a lot of people make these now...


  1. A-ha, you have other ones! Also very cool, particularly showing your painting process. With an iPhone huh? I don't have an iPhone but my boyfriend might be getting one soon. :)

  2. Okay, my i-phone is really useful. Sometimes, I doubt it's existence. I get torn when I talk about it because I don't want to be an add but, I do like my i-phone. There are so many things it can do! Back to the drawing board, actually I think I might take a break and watch a movie.

  3. Wow! That is so fun to watch! great "progress " pics!

  4. I didn't notice your thumb......

  5. They are both fantastic. Great work. Very inspiring.
    Have a lovely weekend.
