The Making of My Video Animation


Have you ever noticed the super cute animation I have for the intro + finale of my Friday Video Time episodes? Are you curious to know how it was made? Thinking about having something wicked like that made for your very own videos?


Oh boy, if you’re nodding your head up + down + saying to yourself “helz yeah”, then you’re in for a treat, cuz today my dear friend Arturo de la Guardia, artistic genius + master animator, is stopping for a visit to share the behind the scenes action that went into making this Pixar quality animation.


We truly hope you enjoy the back stage pass + supercalifragilisticexpialidocious collaboration.


Ohh + if you totally dig Arturo’s animation wizardry skills here’s how to connect with him:

    Oh yes, I had very much wondered about that segment! He has done amazing work.

    I’ve been thinking more and more lately that I want to give vlogging a try. I’ve done stop motion videos before (though not on my blog), and if I end up doing vlogging more seriously, I’ve thought about making a stop motion intro.

    This is awesome to know about this great artist, thanks so much for sharing the info!! Oh and the music – that is another thing I have wondered about. Very cool that you have your own custom written music!
