Groundhog Day. What a curious tradition. Folklore has created a strange mix of religious tradition and meteorologic prediction that has come to be known as Groundhog Day. The future weather has always been an important decision-making factor in history. Of course Phil’s ceremony is more for moral support than any other reason, as today’s technology (and general common sense) has come to a better understanding, we can just sit back and enjoy the fun of the show – since we already know the answer.
Despite PETA’s objection, Punxsutawney Phil is a happy spoiled little guy, that once a year is used as nature’s barometer to help people to organize their thoughts and moves for the next few weeks. I am an animal lover, and yet still I think that PETA’s objection to Phil’s captivity is absurd – no groundhog ever had it so good. But if we did have a need to replace Phil, DDA Medical is a leading medical elearning platform designer and developer that has animation experts that could easily create the perfect Phil facsimile. Our animation artists in combination with custom video production could easily integrate character animation with live action video to create a perfect Punxsutawney Phil avatar. An entire Phil website could entertain and inform by easily combining graphic design illustration and flash video, animation effects and on location photography along with some historical copywriting to round out the package. How much fun would this be to re-live Ground hog day over, and over, and over, and over, and over again?
