Thanks for your nice comment. To do my animation I have developed a process using three programs. I use Crazy Talk for animation, Photoshop for cleaning up the pictures, and I edit using Vegas Video. The kids record their voice on a digital recorder although recording it on a camera is fine. I have them draw their self portrait and then animate it using Crazy Talk. Crazy Talk allows me to add the vocal line to the drawing. I use photoshop to cut out backgrounds. Once I have the file I use Vegas Video to put it all together, add music, backgrounds, and added animation. I'm sure there are simpler methods. Crazy Talk alone can do some pretty amazing things! Good luck with it, let me know if I can help.
