  2. My first vimeo upload a test movie made with open source program "Pencil" . I don't know how to draw animations very well, so i just decided to make an animation by experimenting with the Application, drawing things and seeing what worked. I discovered that with my style of drawing it was best to use a technique whereby i constantly had clear white space, into which to add more characters etc, then i could go back and forth making changes and even changing the story without having to redo anything. I will attempt to make a video of how i achieved this to upload to vimeo.
