Zentangle® for Kidz! The Movie
Well..."The Trailer" is more like it. My brother, Dave Steen, animated my sketches. My son, Alex - yes, the kid in the book - wrote, played and recorded the music. And my daughter, Lilah, (the other kid in the book) created the original Lilah Beans. We refer to them as the Minions. The Lilah Beans, not my children. I think Alex's music goes perfectly with the jumping little bouncy movements of the Lilah Beans. I admit that Alex and I would both like to learn more about animation - particularly stop-motion paper animation - so that we could animate more of this book. In color. And larger. If you view this film on YouTube, it is larger and slightly better quality.
