empire strikes back uncut scene

I made this 16 second animation for the Empire Strikes Back Uncut project.

I took my clip and split it into 384 frames (I changed from 30 fps to 24 fps), then used imageMagick to simplify each frame (edge-finding, etc.) then printed them all out three to a page. I then used tracing paper and drew a new version of each frame. Then, I scanned all the pages and cut them back into 384 frames. Very tiring process.
