Can You Make an Animated Film with Just the iPad?

When someone takes on the iPad as the sole production tool for a creative project it is always going to pique our interest. Rick Wolff, a graphic designer 'by trade', is one such person who aims to answer the above question. He has let us know about his new personal project and the supporting blog/production diary named iPadimator.

Rick is planning to produce the "first animated short using nothing but an iPad".


At iPadimator Rick plans to discuss the apps he will use to carry out this project and the process of using the iPad as the sole content production tool. He also hopes to generate some discussion around these areas and the project with both iPad users, animators and other creatives, as well as the developers of iPad apps themselves.

Animation (2D) is a personal passion of Rick's and something he has wanted to do since he was very young, so we are really looking forward to seeing how he gets on with this project using the iPad.

We recommend reading Rick's Welcome blog post which explains his project in more detail. For more frequent updates and Rick's thoughts on the apps he is trying out you can follow him on Twitter. Let him know we sent you!

And already I've posted about an animation pipeline, and what kinds of twisting and squashing I'll have to do to get it to meet my needs. I'm really jumping on this project with both feet. I've also provided a bio, which will give a clue as to why: why this, why me, why now, and why blog it for all to see.
Thanks for the good wishes!
