The Space Walk is my new book, published by Dial Books for Young Readers, a division of Penguin Kids, and will be out on October 29. I made this animated trailer to promote the book, and I hope you like it.
Animation was done in After Effects, editing in Premiere. Narration was kindly provided by Milo Biggs. Noises and music is by my alter-ego, Dance Robot Dance.
Last weekend we carved a couple of pumpkins for Halloween and, as per the usual, I documented it thoroughly. Each of the kids made up a face and drew it onto a pumpkin, and then I carved them. The movie was made by shooting 662 still images with a timer set to take a picture every five seconds. When this was done it was edited together using Quicktime and Adobe Premiere. The music is The Vanguards’ 1963 version of “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Grieg.
Happy Halloween all y’all.
I’ve been meaning to start posting my animations and videos to YouTube and Vimeo, and finally took the plunge with the video I made for One Ring Zero back in 2005. It’s a song called Stop Metric Madness. They used it on their DVD, Addendum. Take a look.
