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.

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.
