This story sparked a lot of discussion in our house, and the simple last scene has become an instant favorite. If you want to see how the animation was made, there is also a Premier Automne: Making Of video that shows some beautiful detail.
This phenomenal little clip is from Kalahari, the first episode of BBC’s Africa series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough. A golden wheel spider evades the attack of a pompilid wasp… I will leave you to watch how in the clip, but I will say this: up to 44 turns per second.
All six episodes are available in HD on Amazon Instant Video.
It was difficult to even think of what to animate most days. I spent a few hours on average for each day, sometimes it felt like all day. I originally intended to do them quicker but they usually didn’t get going till the late evening. This also meant all the days where only ‘first passes’ or ‘straight aheads’. After the first 5 days I realised I should try to maintain a reasonable quality. It wasn’t easy, a lot of time was spent hitting a wall but I had fun trying something different everyday.
