FROG

Noisy and grainy stock video footage (home movies) shot with Nikon camera except for the video of me burying a dead possum in the neighbors yard, that was shot on a child's video camera (at least it records in AVI instead of this crappy elitist MOV format that none of my editing software recognizes).

This animation was made by 5 kids during a Stop-motion workshop for kids I lead at FrOSCon 2010, the German Free and Open Source Software conference. froscon.org This video entered the FrOSCon Creative Contest that accept any kind of production about FROGS. fcc.froscon.org It's produced using Free Open Source Software: Frame Capture: Luciole festival.inattendu.org/Luciole Editing: CinelerraCV cinelerra.org Music: Hydrogen hydrogen-music.org Operating System: Ubuntu ubuntu.com

The following concise, informative description was taken from http://en.wikipedia.org: Flip the Frog was Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's first sound cartoon. It is about a happy-go-lucky, needy frog, named Flip the Frog. This cartoon was created by Ub Iwerks in 1930. He had drawn a frog and his girlfriend in "Night'", one of the last Silly Symphonies short films he drew while working for Walt Disney. After leaving Disney, Ub Iwerks began the Flip cartoon series with the help of Pat Powers.
