Mexico or Bust! (by Austin and India(Yaya)

The other day we were bored, so we thought it would be fun to make a movie about the trip to Mexico…


We put it on my youtube account at HillHouseDude. India thought of the idea and drew the car. Austin made the people, took the pictures, and did the voices. We both drew the props. (Snowman, Sun, Snowflakes, Cactus.)

I have been experimenting with different animation software, and for this video I used one called Monkey Jam. It is my favorite one so far.

(Notice: It did not actually take 8 seconds to get to Mexico. It took lots of long hours of crying, ear-aches, and car sickness.)

(Also Note: We actually did that dance when we first got here. 😀 )

So there we were, all proud of ourselves, and then we saw this movie…


Well, practice makes perfect.

Oh man, we so want to build one of these cool machines.

    WOW how long do you think it took those guys to get everything just so. That was cool and your video was awesome.

    I think your video was really cool! I also think you guys are totally talented enough to build your own machine like that! Have fun!

    Wish I could hop in my paper car and cruise on down. Do a little dance and stay a while. Good job, but next time you need to add the colorful flags flipping and umbrellas all opening at the same time. Cool stuff.

    That is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time! Great job!

    Good job on the video Austin and India….and thanks for posting the OK GO video. It’s one of our absolute favorite bands and videos of all time. The treadmill one is great as well as This to Shall Pass with the marching band!
