Sooo I was asked to do some inbetweening for a lovely fourth year by the name of Theresia McCearney for her final fourth year film 'The Jam Thief':
I was given three scenes altogether (about 13 seconds worth of animation - they start about 1m30s when the frog reaches the gate), one of the Mother Plant and the baby plant Buddy, which was on multiple layers, and two of the Frog; one as he reaches the gate and hands Buddy to Mother, and the one following where he waves like Columbo before turning and walking off:
Inbetweening was such a challenge. I'd never done it before and it took me a good six weeks or so to do the 13 or so seconds I'd been given. In fact, I was handed it after another member of my class decided she couldn't inbetween it to a standard she was happy with so Theresia passed it to me. The experience was nothing but wonderful though, and I am very glad I did it. It literally threw me into the deep-end of being an inbetweener, and it was invaluable experience for the 40 second animation we did in second semester and for what I want to go on to do in third and fourth year. I would highly recommend other people to jump in on a fourth year film where they can. The experience is so beneficial it's unreal.
