Easter Banner 2018

March of 2018 I discovered that Facebook allows you to upload an animated cover/banner and so I decided to create one for Easter, which meant I only had a week to get it done. First I bought half a dozen eggs, emptied them by putting holes in both ends and blowing out the contents. The egg yolk didn’t go to waste as I make myself a lovely omelet :D Once clean and dry I painted the eggs and add a layer of shiny varnish.
Cutting them in half was no easy task as eggshells are very fragile, but I managed with patients and a sharp boxcutter. To strengthen the shells even more, I added a layer of glue on the inside; this was a good thing as I managed to drop the shells quite a few times. The chicks are made of wool with ‘googly’ eyes and foam beaks. The whole setup was placed on a large piece of cardboard which in hindsight wasn’t a good idea. I should have used wood as the cardboard allowed for a lot of movement which you can see in the video. The movement of three eggs/chicks was filmed separately and later blended together in Adobe Premiere. The finished project is far from perfect but it was both fun and educational.
