In 2016, I was awarded a grant to take digital arts classes at my local community college. I had always imagined making my own animated movies. Animation 157 turned out to be many, many hours of work and so much more complex than I had imagined. We used Adobe Flash CS6. To say that there is a steep learning curve for this software is to put it mildly. To me, it was like learning Chinese. But it was also great fun, especially with the vocal and technical help of 2 classmates, Sherry Sink and Laila Fabian. I know this video sucks, but it encourages me to keep making animations and get better at them.
