Learning animation
[Part 1]

The beginning

If you’ve been following the blog you’ll know I’m busy with some site tweaks. I recently started to change up the portfolio page. I thought what better way to show a website than a video of the site. So I grabbed some screen recording software. After a little playing around I’d recorded my first video which you can check out here…
