This rotoscoped animation created in my 2012 U-Arts Animation ll class was derived from a music video for the group Mungo Jerry of their #1 hit song "In the Summertime". The live action was shot in 1970 by my father's company Record on Film. I used the 16mm film print of the video to load into an Oxberry animation stand camera for the students in the class to rotoscope from. I encouraged them to capture the essence of each frame as quickly as possible and concentrate on filling in as much as possible with their imaginations. Some of the students then brought their scanned drawings into Flash or After Effects in order to add the finishing touches, the rest were captured via istopmotion software.
