EDIT: Someone tried to submit this flash vid at newgrounds at http://www.newgrounds.co
m/portal/view/272826/ - If this flash video is found anywhere Other than http://www.deviantart.co
m/view/17381868/ or http://www.newgrounds.co
m/portal/view/232788/ , I didn't give permission for it to be.
When I put this up on deviantART, someone suggested that I put it up here as well.
This is the final project I had to hand in from my 7 week Flash class, i.e. my first actual Flash video. It's is a parody of the Japanese animation series "Naruto" by Masashi Kishimoto, using the song "Eskimo" by Corky and the Juice Pigs. All for fun and not for profit, of course.
Btw, In the time I had to put this together, I only found what I believe to be a live version of the song, so I didn't have the time to edit out the audience's responce. Actually, I don't have the money or equipment to either. ^^
As said on deviantArt: "I didn't make this song. This song, as far as I know, has been preformed on live radio by a band called "Corky and the Juice Pigs". I figured the laughter was real, given that it was introduced by a host and the laughter responded to the host's words, but what do I know? Whether the laughter was canned or not, the point is I don't have the time, money or equipment to get rid of it, so I guess it's gonna stay.
A few people have expressed their distaste for it, and for the fact that it doesn't have a lot of fancy animation in it. Too bad. I made this as a final project for my Flash class, when I was also juggling with other art projects, final exam, a short film, insert disclaimers, etc.
I can't do much about the sound, but I'm very glad the whole thing was well received by the vast majority so far. Basically, I focused on creating laughter, so I find the critiques about the 'canned'(?) laughter to be amusing. ^_^ So, thank you very much to everyone who has faved, commented and or laughted along with me!"
