This is the first short I animated using over a hundred frames. It was created in grade seven for a year end project. At the time most of my drawing was done 8 1/2 by 11 printer paper, so I used it for the animation. I invented a crude registration system to center my drawings. Four dots in each corner of the area I wanted to animate in. Notice the dot in the bottom left corner slowly creep over to the left. This was one of the registers. Even using a small light table my drawings jitter and wave. This waving effect inspired me to name this piece Woogles in Wavey Land. I received an A plus on the project and my teacher Mrs Kat said she couldn't wait to see my name in the credits of an animated movie. I hope to someday make a longer more exciting adventure of Woogles in Wavey Land.
