Animation Creator HD on iPad used to create Johnny Scribble

In case you were wondering if the iPad can be used to create original hand-drawn-style animations, I have your answer.  An animator by the name of Tyrel Bramwell has been using Red Software‘s iPad app Animation Creator HD to create a series called Johnny Scribble.  I’ve embedded an episode below for your dining and dancing pleasure.

Animation Creator HD is a powerful, low cost ($1.99) iPad app for mobile animators. It features drawing tools, layers, and frame management.  And, as of version 1.7, users can upload their creations to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. I have no drawing skills what-so-ever, and I was still able to make a couple cool characters walk around, and fall on their faces. I’m BRILLIANT (or maybe it’s just the app).

If you’d rather animate on a smaller screen, there’s a separate version of Animation Creator just for iPhone ($.99).

You can view all the Johnny Scribble episodes on YouTube, or on the official website.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
