Animation and live action meet halfway in Golden Age of Insect Aviation: The Great Grasshoppers, a whimsically bold 10-second adventure by Wayne Unten.

Writes Unten:

"In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."

While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.

This is one of many short animated clips I've made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series... who knows :)

Yes, please. More of this, please.
