    I used to love those great 2D animations in the Monty Python movies!

    You should ask what program she used for this, cause I totally want to try now!

  3. Emily says:

    Anagahama, I used a combination of Paint.net and GIMP, both open source programs. Technically I could have done it all in GIMP, but the tools they provide for chopping a photo up, resizing pieces etc. are more complicated than I’m used to. So I used Paint.net to make the frames, and GIMP to animate them.
