I’m an animation student, which means that I had to animate my documentary project. For my project, I decided to interview my grandma about her life and experience immigrating to the United States. I sat down one evening and asked her some questions, while recording her answers. After I got back to school, I listened the audio and began the grueling process of animating.

It has allowed me to be a lot more flexible with the timing of my frames. In all, the process of animating this took me around a month.
