Interview with editor Adam Krik

Well yesterday was a huge day in any measure of a film. While I’ve been in York teaching animation to school pupils and staff from the National Railway Museum, Jess and Simon have been doing the final picture edit with our editor Adam Kirk. To mark the event, I asked Adam to share the process of editing animation with us - you can read the interview on the Astronomers Sun Blog here.

All in a days work

Well in case anybody wondered what I'm paid to do, here you go! A mini film we made today as made as part of an animation training workshop for museum staff. Animated in Pixilation (starring Rachel Preston from the National Media Museum) – we covered animation acting and timing, (anticipation action and reaction – beginning middle and end, I Can Animate, I Movie and Garage Band. The staff edited the film and recorded the soundtrack themselves. As you can see, we even covered how to download to a movie format suitable for web upload!
