This is an animation I wrote using OpenGL for my Computer Graphics class.  The animation depicts a skateboard doing a physically incorrect kick-flip over a small wall in slow motion while the camera rotates around the skateboard.  In the animation I use linear interpolation to animate the camera and skateboard within the scene.  The skateboards in the scene are instances of one object.
