The stop-motion animation took 192 frames to complete. Each character started as a 2D drawing which was turned into a 7 inch puppet. A set was designed and the animation was created. For those of you familiar with Gumby, or The Nightmare Before Christmas, the boot screen animation came to life in roughly the same manner. After a puppet was photographed, it was moved ever so slightly, and photographed again. When all of the pictures were spliced together, it produced the stop-motion animation.
The animation will be available until April 14th. Motorola says that it will offer more boot screen animation in the future.
