Grasshopper Aviation - Golden Age of Insect (Video)

A funny short live-action footage animation by Wayne Unten.

"In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."

All started while Wayne was taking kids to the playground,  shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using his iPhone.
Grasshopper Aviation - Golden Age of Insect

This is one of many short animated clips that he made for fun. let's hope he might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series... it is Just Excellent :)

It's the first project of Wayne Unten using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where's the fun in that?!) he wrote on the decsription on Vimeo.

Golden Age of Insect Aviation: The Great Grasshoppers from Wayne Unten on Vimeo.

Besides the bounce in her step—the derring-of-her-do—there are several smaller things to delight in this:

- The recoil in the 'hopper's undercarriage when she puts up her first boot
- How she uses a spot on the 'hopper's flank as a recessed step (when close examination of S. gregaria will reveal markings that plainly read NO STEP)
- The glint of late-afternoon sunlight from her goggles as she turns to sit
- How she snaps her goggles tight before gripping the beast's carapace
And she's off—! Wish I could go, too.
