Animated Film Production: Compositing and Editing.

Your digits can count to 10, carve a bear out of wood and give out free handjobs. One thing they cannot do is to turn a picture into a digit and back to a picture again. Only the Digital Technology that we all came to depend on is capable of doing that.

The last leg of “Rocks In My Pockets” production process is where all the Magic takes place – stop motion backgrounds get combined with drawn animation by means of Digital Technology and all together they are put in line with the narration. Welcome, handmade stuff, you are digital now!

Wendy explains in great detail (she could be a tutor on YouTube tutorials, don’t you think?) how she works with Photoshop files in After Effects. She also gives a pretty clear idea how she uses Final Cut Pro. See it yourself:


Since August 7th is my birthday, I want to wish you a pleasant day (full of sex, beach, beer). Somebody has to have fun while I work. Also, stay tuned – we are coming back next Tuesday with a new video!

    thanks for this fabulous blog, Signe! Can’t wait to see the film — very rich concept and visuals. BTW – I like your voice as narrator. The way you speak has such energy. All best in the home stretch!
