The above flipbook animation was originally made for a drawing class I took in 2003. I have always wanted to have it digitally animated in a video so as to preserve it in case the flipbook ever disappeared. The Rip.Mix.Feed activity gave me the opportunity to do exactly that. So, I took my digital camera in hand (no tripod available) and photographed all 96 pages of the flipbook, imported all the photos and adjusted them accordingly in Photoshop. Using iMovie, the once paper flipbook was brought to life with a musical enhancement as a 30 second video.
The video is by no means smooth and is sort of choppy, much like flipping through a flipbook. In this way, I think it maintains some of the experience of flipping.
