EDIT: I have fixed the problem with the audio. Unfortunately lowering the bitrate of the audio completely un-syncs it -- thus it is sitting at a beefy 7.5 megabytes. This is a temporary fix -- I'll work on a real fix if anyone actually cares, but to be honest I probably won't since I'm lazy and the people who I wanted to show this to (the reason why I uploaded it to begin with) wouldn't mind. I guess if there is a "popular" demand I will, but I don't see that happening since I'll be surprised if this doesn't get blammed.

This is the product of around a days work (although I of course spread it into 3-days of on-and-off work while playing Warcraft and watching reruns of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air).

I made this movie as the final animation assignment for a course I am doing on Digital Media. I originally drew up the storyboard for it in my pointless "drawing" class, and due to pure laziness (evident by the fact that I've had half a year to complete this animation and I didn't start it until 4 days before it was due) I decided to use the storyboard drawn in my drawing class for my animation class -- which resulted in this movie. Because it was made for a class and not for funsies, there are several elements present in it that I would not have included if purely up to me (walk cycles, a bouncing object, abstract "camera" angles etc), so please keep this in mind when something seems out of place. This also explains the extremely childish un-detailed characters and the vectorized photo backgrounds (further products of my laziness).

Anyway, I still think it's worth a watch, and hopefully you will too. If you're not familiar with the "Dear Sister" trend and have never watched the OC (I don't, but I've seen some videos on YouTube) you won't really "get" half of it -- and if you don't know who Blastoise is you might as well not bother.

PS: "Fin" isn't necessarily the end of the movie.

Creativity saved your day!!!

This one is about pure creativity, have to admit that the animation movements, and colors are low category but the rest is awesome. Implementing the Pokemon added a funny but inspirational meaning to the animation story line with the music. And the ending and adds of the newspaper just rock big time!!! ha! Keep it up! But the Ninja turtles are not going to save Blastoise from getting killed???

that was RIDICULOUS! lol, i like the way you portrayed blastoise in the news paper. there is indeed a lot of roomm for improvement, but it was very entertaining.

Oh so beautifull....!

I really don't know where to start... But let's go: poor musical selection and no audio effects. Poor drawing, except for blastoise which was probably traced over. Blastoise has a scale problem since one second he's crushing down building with his behind and the other he fits in a normal kid's room. The black guy walking must have had rollerskates on because he was going too slow for the background speed.

ufff.... Think that's it

It made me chuckle... a little.

It was a little bit funny, the story i mean. You might want to work on that animating
of yours... And killing that black guy wasn`t very nice either.
