Distance runners!

So Maria and I were walking, and as usual I was pretending my hand was a spaceship flying around fences and bushes. It then occured to me if I had a matchbox car I would be doing the same thing, but I'd be rolling the car on any surface that was at a convenient height. Well, what if that matchbox car had a step counter inside it so you could see how far it's traveled? And hey! What a great thing for fathers and sons to do while walking somewhere boring?! And thus "Distance runners" was born. Click on the image for full size.

A fun first attempt.

Well, here it is, my first attempt at stop motion animation. I'ts only 16 frames. I guess if it were the standard 24 fps it would look a little smoother. I put the whole thing together in photoshop. I'm going to try it in after effects to see if it looks any better there.
