My earliest animation attempts were hand drawndirect on to old clear 18mm film since I couldn't afford a movie camera or cost of film development. But it was a case of stop that or go blind. Then when the Internet arrived animated gifs were great fun to make. And along came Flash and Fireworks adding all kinds of possibilities. Nowadays cheap and free specialist animation apps are here - easy to use, stylus drawing directly on screen. Fantastic. I just wish I had time to indulge.

These links below are to my interactive Flash SWF files now defunct - Not worth the bother as no one has a Flash media player installed anymore - my sentimental side won't let me remove them. These files were never really supported on mobile devices, much to Adobe's annoyance.
