Hey there everyone, DeepRising here with the Weekly News Letter. There was a great response to last week's topic "woodland Creatures". Well done to everybody who entered. Here are the winning flipnotes.
Our first selection is this beautifully animated galloping deer by ToxicTiger. The 'clip-clop' sounds add very nicely to the effect.
This next entry by Ms.Holly♥ features a fox cub and his baby brother. Baby fox's are so adorable : ).
From acorns, great forests grow. In this flipnote by AtomicWeeb a fox makes his forest home inside a tree. It's a very well equipped tree, it even has internet connection, and look, he's got an email! : )
Forest creatures need to be quick to survive. The furry critter in this entry by Nohealani is well equipped for life in the forest. We were very impressed with the realistic movement in this animated run cycle.
In this fantastically animated musical flipnote by BookKeeper, a Lynx cat has some personal issues to deal with.
We were totally mesmerised by this foxy metamorphosis flipnote by Mustard. The transitions are full of shapes and movement, and a feast for the eyes.
In our final selection, by IronEren a fairy Sprite flys through the forest, check-listing all the animals she finds there. Great job, but watch out for the bear XD.
This week's topic is the Moving Camera. This is where the view point of the flipnote is moving. It could be through the air, along the ground, around an object or any other way you can think of. In movies, this is often seen as crane shots, trucking moves, dolly shots and P.O.Vs. The effect is great for showing things like flying, running, and falling, or to add interest and drama to a subject or a setting. If you want to use photos instead of drawings, feel free to use the DSi camera to create a moving camera flipnote.
FLIP TIP- Hold your DSi in front of you, camera facing out. Then walk around, taking photos as you go. One photo every step works well. Try walking in your garden, or around your home, or anywhere like. Import the photos into flipnote. When they are played back at speed, the effect is really cool.You could also try sliding your DSi along a table top for the same kind of effect in miniature.
We really love the way your all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the flipnotes you create for them. Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel, and the deadline for your entries is the 19th of November. Keep on flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
