We sent my son's favorite train "Stanley" to space in a weather balloon with a HD camera and an old cell phone for GPS. He was recovered 27 miles away in a corn field and we got some great footage of the trip. This video documents the journey from liftoff to landing.
My 4 year old and Stanley are inseparable like Calvin and Hobbes. He's been attached to him since he was two, and they play, sleep and do everything together. I animated Stanley's face with After Effects and Photoshop to bring him to life how I imagine my son sees him.
Tell us about the animation that appears on Stanley's face.ReplyDelete
Absolutely loved this...what a clever Dad! Am sending to my grandson who too is a big Stanley train fan...thanks, so enjoyed.ReplyDelete
Great video! If I were the kid, I would have been really ticked if my train hadn't been found ;-)ReplyDelete
That's funny. Last week my almost-two-year-old sent Stanley to plumb the depths of the Cincinnati sewer system by flushing him down the toilet. Of course it didn't make it that far, it got stuck. Anyway, it seems like your Stanley adventure was much more fun.ReplyDelete
