So I recently came across this “making of” video of a commercial made using both stop motion animation and hand-drawn animation. To those of you who aren’t animators, stop motion is by far one of the most complicated and tedious forms of animation. Most beginning animators are even afraid to begin one of these projects because we’re afraid we will not have the time to finish it. Hand-drawn animation is my personal favorite. 2D animation just breathes life into a character, in my opinion. Take a look, this method of animation is quite fascinating.
