“Sassypoop$$” is an animated film by Mitsensens,  a 9-year-old.

Hi Mitsensens, I watched your film, “Sassypoop$$.” How did you make the film?  It looks like it was made on a phone.

The film was made on my Dad’s iPhone 3. The app is Animation Creator, I think.

How long did it take?  Was it hard?

It took 15-20 minutes to make. When you know what you’re doing, it’s not hard.

What is happening at the beginning with the dot that blows up really big? 

It’s his protective shield. It was supposed to protect him from exploding when he was born, but he exploded anyway.

It looks like the guy’s head explodes and stuff comes out.  Is that what’s happening?


Is Sassypoop$$ the name of the guy in the movie? Are the things that come out of his head Sassypoop$$?  What is Sassypoop$$?   

Sassypoop$$ are the dots that try to make you explode when you’re born.

Do you love making animated movies?  What do you love or hate about it?

I love animated movies because they can end up really cool but sometimes they’re hard, like when you’re trying to make something perfect and it doesn’t always work out.

Are you working on any more movies? 

I will!
