XKCD #1190 – Time: The Animated Film

from the page
XKCD #1190, aka “Time” was a project undertaken by Randall Munroe. It started on March 25th 2013, and ended on July 26th 2013, 4 months later. During that time Randall posted at least one new frame an hour, for a total of 3099 frames of animation. It was a fascinating experiment, and an interesting story about an event that has never been witnessed in recorded history. To read more about the project check out Randall’s blog post here.

I decided to attempt to animate the entirety into a ‘short’ video on YouTube. Many hours of work later, this was the result. It’s definitely not perfect, but I don’t have much practice or skill as a video editor yet, and in my limited time this was the best I could do.
