Stop Motion Animation of Falling

To create this animation, I used a pin, a cork board, my Macbook's built-in webcam, and the Photobooth app to capture the images. I used masking tape to create borders for the edge of the frame, and dental floss keep my arcs smooth since I was initially having a lot of trouble getting the object to fall/bounce in a straight line. I planned everything out by first doing rough tests in Flash, but the actual stop-motion animation was done straight ahead using The Odd Rule and FDHT to guide my spacing. I then imported all the images in Flash, textured the timing, and animated the intro as well as the orange blob at the bottom.
