My goal with “Mysterious Orbs” was to animate a 100% true childhood story that was short enough to post on Instagram (which, at that time, had a 15-second limit). I also wanted something to show as an example of rapid, paper- and iPhone-based animating at our first DIY Animation Club meeting in Houston. This was an experiment in brevity and personal story-telling, drawn over two cups of coffee with a ballpoint pen in a cheap sketchbook, without registration, on the picturesque patio of a Corner Bakery Cafe. Shot at same patio table, using an iPhone 5 and natural light. Edited in iMovie for iOS.
