we had to create a ‘monster’ based on our biggest fears. there is something very real about ventriloquist dummies and that has always unsettled me. and the thought of them moving and talking themselves in an evil way is the worst thing imaginable.
we watched our peers wave and we drew the start frame of the wave and where the motion would finish. i timed the wave to be 1 second long. so from A to B it takes half that. at 34 frames p/s. we need 12 in-between drawings.
