    I didn't know exactly how to title this thread, so if it's misleading, I apologize.

    I'm filming a project for school and I want to have a character talking to a car key. I want the key to have a face and moving mouth when he talks (believe me, my vision for this is as weird as it sounds). How would I go about this?

    My thought would be that I would just have to create a still photo of the key and then photoshop a different shape of the mouth and edit it the film every other frame. That sounds insanely tedious and easy for me to lose track as I'm doing it. Is there another way to go about this?

    I didn't know if this should belong in the movie and video forum or the images and design forum, since it pertains to both.

    All help is appreciated. Thanks!

    -Tom

    Not really my area of expertise, but..

    I am aware of a good program called ToonBoom studio

    http://www.toonboom.com/products/toonBoomStudio/

    That would help you create the animated character

    As for combining the animated cartoon with live footage, that is beyond me

    You can trial the software to find out if it is want you are after

    It would probably help if people knew what video editing software you are using. If Final Cut, I would ask at...

    Of course, my fault, forgot to mention I will be using Final Cut Pro. Thanks for the input.
