Okay, there were no salty pirates. It was all just me.

Titles and music. This is the first part of the making of an illustration appearing in Brownie & Pearl Take a Dip, written by Cynthia Rylant, published by Beach Lane Books. The sketch is scanned and enlarged and laser-printed, then used as a basis for inking on a light table.
The soundtrack is from a collection of old polka 78s I found at the Salvation Army. "Unitas Polka" by Whoopee John Wilfahrt and his polka band.
I've got another version of this in the works. Stay tuned.
Happy Holiday everyone.
Shot with Canon 7d. Music by DanceRobotDance.com
The stills were shot on my Canon 7d, one each second. They were sequenced in Quicktime Pro and it was all edited in Premiere. Music by Dance Robot, Dance. (dancerobotdance.com)
You're seeing about two hours of work here, shot at one frame every three seconds using a Canon 7d and a timer.
Here's the finished illustration.
The page is from the fourth book in the Brownie & Pearl series, written by Cynthia Rylant and published by Beach Lane/Simon & Schuster.
This was made with a Canon 7d and an interval timer remote set to take a frame every five seconds. The camera was set on auto exposure which unfortunately gives some flicker when, for instance, someone is in front of one of the lamps in my living room. The 662 individual frames were easily sequenced with Quicktime Pro and it was all edited in Adobe Premiere CS3. Music is The Vanguards version of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' (1963?). Enjoy.
This is an update to the one I posted two weeks ago. Added a little mood-music made in the music sequencing app Numerology.
So, you know, since it's Friday and I have lots of other work I should be doing, I decided to spend some time making this little movie to commemorate the completion of the series.
I shot it with my iPhone clamped to a tripod. This works quite well and I'm afraid I'm seeing the end of my affinity for using tape-based video cameras. Anyone want a barely-used HiDef Sony HV20?
The music was made in Ableton Live with the Synplant synthesizer, which I can't get enough of.
Shot with my brother-in-law's Sony HC21 and iStopMotion set to record a frame every eight seconds. Yes that's a Shogun Warrior c.1970's on the cart near the end.
Music made in Ableton Live.
The drawings are all from the book, and the music was created with Reason.
Frames captured with my Canon HV20 into a demo version of iStopMotion on my MacBook Pro.
Music made by me in Ableton Live.
The accompanying music was made in 2006 in Ableton Live.
