This animation is the 2nd in a series we like to call "Story Tag." The idea is simple: one person starts animating something, then the other person gets the file and continues animating right where it left off. Then, at some point that person stops and passes it back to the first person, and the animation and the story continue to develop in that fashion. (Even the voices/sound effects are created by the person currently animating.) It's basically like improv-animation because it evolves sponateously with no prior discussion as to how the story will flesh out. This installment in the Story Tag series was started by Gel using characters from a clay animation of ours called "Over There". It happened to be getting rather long, so this is Part One. Enjoy!

I agree.

Well done with flawless transitions

That was great! More involved storyline than the last one, a plus. "And just when he started singing." Hilarious. Looking forward to the next cartoon. Keep it up!

rating - faint smiles.

I suppose as you say it goes to show how the same creative process can bring about such different pieces of work.

Unlike your first storytag, I didn't chuckle at all at this one. Smiled a bit in places. I'm interested to see where it will go in any case.

Again, the transitions are totally flawless from animator to animator.

I was slightly disappointed by the lack of easter eggs and I preferred the way in the first edition we could get an overview of the animating sequence at the end and jump to a certain scene if we wished. Though I did watch the whole thing again, it was nicer that way, I felt.

Also, I liked being able to jump back to the menu and go back to a scene. It was nice for playing with and noticing all the extra bits.

I really see no reason to not allow folk to jump back to the menu, specially when watching a 2nd time.

The animation was nicely done with a nice combination of tweening and redrawing.

I liked the shot just before 'Eye of the Tiger' starts, with his left hand towards the camera and the right towards the mountain.

The messages on the tourist area passed by too quickly and were too small to read really. That's the kinda thing a scene select/menu jump would help with imo.

Wasn't too keen on this one so far. I guess that working between you gave you more energy to keep animating?

The jokes seemed a bit weak to me and the last bit, with the sign saying 'here it is' seemed overly forced. Perhaps it was, with the change-over just before.

It is interesting enough with enough ideas in there to hold my attention but unlike your other one, I wasn't particularly entertained by it.

Interested to see what ideas you'll come up with for the continuation of this storyline.

Maybe I should reserve judgement until it's all finished.

I like the way you have drew your characters. And your animation is very smooth, the storyline is very good too.

Make more !
