2D Animation Project

I made this animation as part of my assessment for the first year 2D Animation of my HND in Interactive Media. The subject is a short film of my late cat, Dexter, chattering at birds he has sighted through my bedroom window./p>

It includes motion tweens, shape tweens, motion path guided tweens, animated gifs, frame by frame animation, sub-object animation, sound and bitmap to vector conversions. I used the drawing tools in Flash Pro to create the artwork, and used ActionScript 3.0 to complete some code for the animation.

I did struggle with this project, as capturing the fast movement of his mouth when he makes the chatter noise was difficult. I am not completely happy with how it is represented in the animation. However, I really enjoyed making the animation of Dexter.
