This is from an old project I did in 2003 on the B3ta website. It began as an idea for a long animated gif in phase 1, but grew quickly into a full video production.
Having seen Phase 1 it gave people freedom to push things further and this ended up 16 minutes long, but still manages to keep the flow going.
Tweening is when you fill in the gaps
between two keyframes in an animation, but in this case it refers to the unrestricted creative animations people use to get from their start image to their end image.
I wondered what would happen if you got a lot of random images to use as keyframes, assigned them a random order and then got different people to tween from one to the next as animated gifs with no idea what everyone else was doing.
The end result would be a non-stop stream of consciousness from the collective mind of those that took part. I decided to see what this would look like and invited friends from b3ta to contribute.
I also have Phase 3 & 4 Combined up on here, Phase 1 is on Youtube. Over the years not many people have had the chance to see this phase as it was too long for Youtube and it was only made at 200 x 200 pixels.
