Shot my first stop-motion animation in 1970 in Victor Harbor, South Australia, on a clockwork standard 8 camera bought in a flea market. I discovered creating animated films is long, slow, boring and labour intensive.

I obviously didn't learn the lesson: 37 years later, I am still making animation the long, slow, boring labour intensive way. :wink:

I made my first animation in about '73 when I was in grade school on a super 8mm camera my mom owned but hadn't used in a long time. It didn't have a frame by frame trigger, so I roughed it by pressing the shutter button as fast as I could for each bit of movement. I animated with magic marker on a piece of glass I taped to the wall. What a mess. :) Doing it on the computer is certainly much nicer.

No you are not the only woman Nimphaea on this forum, but I wonder if you are any where near my age.

And are you a preacher? like me.

The Tick

Don't forget their brilliant decision to cancel "The Tick" (the animated show) because it didn't test well in the 6-9 year old demographic, even though practically my entire dorm got up early on Saturday morning to see it. Not an easy feat!
I loved The Tick. I'll never forget the episode where he rolled himself with a rolling pin, to prevent being blown up by exploding bread dough.

Back on topic: I was a little boy watching the JFK funeral on a 'portable' B&W TV - that weighed about 50 pounds (51).
