Hedwig’s six-frame film reel

I had the idea to convert the filmstrip print from my great-grandmother’s motion picture days into a brief animation. It’s good to know that Photoshop is good for something other than adding snarky comments to cat photos.

The film would have had a much faster frames-per-second rate, but with only 6 frames I decided to draw them out a bit. I also cheated by adding a dark “blip” frame to help transition from frame 6 back to frame 1. My absolute favorite frame is the last one when 18-year-old Hedwig is looking straight at the camera. So you shouldn’t be surprised that I chose that one to use in my blog’s header graphic!
