Golden Age of Insect Aviation: The Great Grasshoppers

“In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America.”

While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.
This is one of many short animated clips I’ve made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series… who knows 🙂
It was my first project using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where’s the fun in that?!) My work-in-progress can be found on my blog: www.animatingforfun.com.
