Stay tuned for Bloopers at the end :D

Finally, I'm able to Upload our prized animation competition piece, Hoppity Meets Floppity, a collaboration between Stephanie Koch ( =Kizamaji ) and I- May 2007, we took it to competition and won 1st place an the Pennsylvania Regional Computer Fair.

Unfortunately, we did not make states- due to a rigged competeition by Sauderton High School. But htis is still a masterpiece to be proud of (even if the credits are longer than the actual film) :roll:

Production Statistics

:pointr: a total of 345 different drawings were used in this Limited Movement animation style.
:pointr: All drawings were drawn by hand, scanned in, and vectored. Including the background.
:pointr: Programs Used: Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro 1.5
:pointr: sound effects by Sound FX.

:pointr: Music in this film is copyrighted but has been granted permission for use under non commercial terms by songwriter, Phil Slone:
Intro-- "Sooner or Later, Piano Theme" written by P.Slone & Steve Barri, Performed by Marilyn Cole."Sooner or Later" written by P.Slone & Steve Barri and perfomed by The Grass Roots.

Cast
Mr. Shafer --- as himself
Hoppity ---- Marilyn Cole
Floppity ---- Steph Koch

Story
The story may be a little hard to follow right away-- this being a learning experience for us both. So here is a Synopsis:

Mr. Shafer is a science teacher, and he has a class pet, a little green frog named, Hoppity. Mrs. Miller, another science teacher has asked Mr. Shafer to babysit her class pet, a big monstrous toad, Floppity. Mr. Shafer puts Floppity together with Hoppity, and hopes they will get along........but Floppity is just too darn scary!
.......Even the old science teacher can't believe his ears when he hears what that toad has to say!


Extras
Bloopers- hahahahahahaha lulz. and Mr. Hollingsworth will make a cameo appearance. Comes after the end. :D


Hope you all will enjoy!

Katmomma Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009  Professional Artist
@01:58It took about a school year to make. :giggle: and as said in the description, the drawings were done by hand (on tracing paper) and scanned in to be vectored and colored. The animation itself was set up frame by frame in Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5. From a technical standpoint, the technique was traditional, but we used digital means to aid the process. :D Thank you! :heart:
