Did You Know?
My first taste of animation was way back in grade school, with a box of Play-Do and a super16 movie camera. I spent months shooting through a whole roll of film, mostly very crude stuff involving characters squashing things or getting squashed. I was so excited to see the result, took it to the developer, waited a few days, borrowed a projector from a neighbor, only to find that most of it was completely out of focus. I didn’t do much more animation till graduate school.
