Well, just the other day I had this little project to do in world history. What we had to do is pick a greek god or legend or myth or whatever and do a little presentation on that. My group had no idea on what myth we could do, but our teacher suggested Oedipus.
I knew we would regret choosing that myth upon reading it.
Suicidal sphinxes and sons making love to mothers and having daughters who are your sisters and JESUS CHRIST it was a messed up story. However, it was perfect material for a flash movie.
I started out with writing a full script.
As you could tell, the script only took 5 minutes. The actual animation was done over a course of 3 in a half days (which explains the shitty animation in general). Most of the voice acting I either: did it in the middle of the night, or, did it right on the spot when I needed it (which is why some of the voice acting is total shit).
Overall, I had to trash almost 1/5th of the script (however, earlier I had to trash 1/2 of the script until our teacher gave us more time due to his projector exploding every 5 seconds) and people enjoyed it very much. I perticularly love that one scene with the Sphinx, mainly because of the voice I did for the Sphinx and the random doodles I drew while doing the scene.
I guess it isn't that bad for a flash thats been worked on for at least 3 in a half days. A much needed improvement from my other flash that I did almost a year ago.
