In animation, the "inbetweener" is the assistant animator who does the drawings which help create the illusion of movement from one lead animator's key pose to the next pose. When stacked in order, the assistant's drawings are literally in between the lead animator's art.
My current inbetweener is a robot, and he made this funny face. In the finished film, it's onscreen for 1/30th of a second, but I discovered it while editing, and wanted to share this goofy drawing. Great job, robot! Work faster!
