The Lockdown here in Spain is thankfully coming to an end. While I’ve been confined to quarters I’ve taken the opportunity to learn some new skills and try to produce examples of “virtual theatre”, based on plays I’ve written, such as Some Enchanted Evening and Fool’s Errand.
I’ve just posted another short animation video on my YouTube channel. Based on a poem I wrote back in the mid-70s, this was created using two new (free) programs I’ve recently discovered.
Mediabang Pro is a painting program that I found easy to use and which produced good results. You can download it here.
Opentoonz is an open source animation program. Originally called Toonz, it’s the software used to create Studio Ghibli films like Spirited Away and the popular TV show Futurama. It’s open source and free for any budding animator to download and use. Here’s the link to the download page.
I may well create a video showing how I made my new video Shore Lines which can be viewed below or via this link.
