Anyone who has ever served time on a hospital administration committee knows what I'm talking about. This is where the vast difference between the world of hospital administration versus the world of doctors and nurses becomes clear.
As a side note for those interested in the process of creating these animations:
I experimented with a different method of creating the talking head portion. The result was not what I wanted, but it was interesting...
Here is the comparison video:
I made my
last animation with tracing paper and a pen back in 1992.
At the time,
I was mainly drawing with a Summagraphics Sketch Pad attached to a desktop
Amiga Computer with a ton of peripherals. Even though they all filled a room,
it still only output low resolution video.
After a day
of traveling 23 years ago, I sat down with a black marker and my tracing pad
and drew this animation. When I got
home, I scanned the drawings, colored them and compiled them with triggered
sound events in Disney Animation Studio.
animation of this type has an interesting jitter referred to as
“Line-Boil.” Like the early animators, I
believed line-boil was a terrible imperfection.
Sometimes, however, it makes the animation interesting.
mid 1990’s and later, television grew to like line-boil and added the deliberate
exaggerated effect to many titles and animations.
found the original 1992 drawing files for "The Sneeze" and, with some
effort, was able to reassemble them into this cartoon for posting.
I now use
Toon Boom Harmony and a Cintiq, which is light years away from Deluxe Paint and
Disney Animation Studio on the Amiga platform and even further away from
painting acetate sheets and filming them with a Super 8mm camera frame by
Huge picture. You have to click on it to view it full on your computer screen.
It's my version of our hospital's computer system.
It consists of a gazillion various modules, some decades old, all hobbled together to create the current system. Multiple vendors are involved. Many of the sections are obsolete. I'm pretty certain vacuum tubes and mechanical switches are needed for some of the sections.
