Animation is time intensive (Duh!), so I don't get to practice it often. That's why I'm pretty satisfied with my television commercial parody even though I rushed it a bit. Parody of what? Check out Jameson's Irish Whiskey Commercial. Besides Tricia being my leading lady and mermaid I used her legendary Second Life creation, a sailing vessel in a storm on a rolling sea.

For post-production we use AVS Video Editor. Amazing what simple, inexpensive software can do these days.

BTW, since Second Life provides real time 3D modeling in an animated virtual world it's easy to make an animation. This allows more time for creativity. Tricia and I use Camtasia for the screen capture of video, a way of making animations known as Machinima.
