I have been trying to improve at my animating skills, but they are still terrible. That 24 frames per second rule is really a killer. As I have been animating it made me think about time and reality in a different way. More about that in a different blog http://randomthoughtthursdays.blogspot.com/. Recently I purchased Adobe Premiere Elements and made a blue screen stop motion animation. I know it is bad, in fact it is terrible, but I did not know how to light a blue screen properly.
