Anastasia was the worst person I ever had to work with. Crazy bitch didn't even know how to keep an accent. If I had loyal fans who, let's say, actually bothered to read my journal for once and grabbed the opportunity to voice a main character, I'd never had to beg for the help of a person who can't even speak proper English to play a British character.
I hate everyone.
"DenNIM", my second animation for school and this wasn't just a random assignment, but for my exam. This was serious business, unlike my previous school animation. This time I made the choice to make something original/for myself. I'll glady accept the possibility that nobody will watch this because of that, since the grade I recieved for this animation was so preposterously high, I lost the motivation to care. I'm cool. A piece of paper told me so.
Like my journal said before, I was planning to change and edit a few things before showing it to you, but I actually learned something from my teacher: sometimes you just need to shut up and leave it alone. Though, contradicting what I just said, that doesn't stop me and I might as well make these changes later. But not now.
Hopefully you'll enjoy my first animated feature.
Trivia: * My character, Damy, was used as a base for Dennim. * "Mind" was originally spelled "Minned". Reverse the letters, that makes "Dennim". * Dennim's voice is Kevin's voice in the "Ed, Edd and Eddy Highschool" series. * When listening to Dennim, you can sometimes hear Edd's voice. The person who voices Highschool Edd also voices Highschool Kevin. * Mind's mother was voiced by two people; the scream was provided by my sister. * Mind's mother is loosely based on the woman in the painting at the beginning of the game "5 Days A Stranger". * Dennim turns me on.
Collaboration with delicious flash ninja who did the animation and sound effects to bring this painting to life.

FINALLY! I apologize for the long wait. . .it seems I never could get around to uploading this thing. Well, viola, here it is, Birds of a Feather!
And I thought Pandora's Book was a challenge. . . XD
This was my flash project for the entirety of the class last quarter. This was a project split between advanced 2d and advanced flash animation, the assignment being to produce a 90 second short with lipsynching and character acting with frame by frame animation. It took me the whole 11 weeks from concept to completion, and let me tell you. . .that was a crunch. I was literally coloring this thing up until the last hour of the last class. At this stage I am very happy with it. There are still some timing issues--I think this thing could seriously be 5 minutes long and feel better for it--and for my demo reel, I plan to work on that aspect. So this is in essence, a work in progress. I'd like to polish it further, maybe take it into after effects and really make it kick ass.
Flash couldn't handle some of the camera moves--apparently movie clips freak it out, so bear with the choppiness in some areas.
This was all hand-drawn animation--no tweens and no rotoscoping. I appreciate your constructive criticism, especially concerning the animation. Anything with which I can continue to improve my work. Thankyou.
She is the last of the legion of angels to survive in this age of disbelief, but she knows that her time is up. Soon she will be transformed into stone, like the others. She will have her freedom again but not after another thousand years when she will be released by the sheer miracle of prophetic words.
I enjoyed learning my way thru the technicalities of this animation.

This is a brief farewell to my pastor's family, as they've moved on to another church. It's made in the fashion of "My Neighbors the Yamadas" (animated by Studio Ghibli), so some viewers might recognize some similarities. This animation took me approximately 5 days to finish. My sincerest apologies to those of you who do not know this family - my recommendations are that you move on in your browsing.
The trackbar I made for this acts as both a preloader and a navigator, and is fashioned after Media Player Classic. I hope it's function is rather self explanatory.
