This is my final for my sophomore year of animation at KCAI. The idea for this came about a few years ago. I was doing a flash animation class over the summer with a friend. The teacher Bill wanted us to animate a fable. Instead of use an existing one, I made my own story. After that day I never went back to that class and never did any animation that summer either. The thought was still in my head and since I already had the story board laid out it made things a little easier. All of the animation in hand drawn frame by frame in flash with a wacom tablet. The camera movements and stuff was done using after effects CS3. The music is "To Our Surprise" from the Kingdom Hearts Soundtrack by Yoko Shimimura. All I ask is that you watch the whole thing, its only 1 minute, you can do it. Leave me any reviews you have and enjoy.

[EDIT] Holy Friggin Crap! Wow! The front page, this is so awesome! I hoped to get the front page before I graduate from KCAI but I didn't expect this one to do so well. Thanks everybody who voted and gave me great reviews.

horrible idea, karma. it's like saying everyone who is starving to death or who gets raped gets it because "they deserved it". decent animation of a horrible concept. *shrugs*

karma?

not bad! i think the title "karma" is rather misleading. every character was just trying to eat and survive. what did the eagle do to deserve that? you're probably already aware of this, i'm thinking.

but couldnt the same be said for everyone. If someone is hurts or steals from someone to survive is it ok? True, it is different for the animal kingdom but like the description says it is a fable which means there is an underlying message to it.

Short, nice.

The animation was a little short and the animation was good but nothing unseen.

However, subtracting that from the rating, the story line was VERY nostalgic. If you've read Annie Dillard's "Living Like Weasels" the main character is a weasel but also makes naturistic comparisons to an eagle. Extra point for that literature reference.

Seeing as the flash was not intended for NG (hopefully) its more of a storyline focused flash. If the flash was longer and had better graphics I would have liked it even more.
