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.

animated well

This was a well animated flash with a great soundtrack and effects but you have a poor concept of karma and therefore the story suffers. The weasel has to eat the dragonfly and the eagle has to eat the weasel therefore their not doing anything that would bring about bad karma. This should be titled misfortune.

...

Your styyle is fantastic its like a childs book sortve style for your flash now thats a bit diffrent...

i liked the idea but you gave off everything that was going to happen!
not only that but the eagle took 40% of the flashes length to get sucked into the engine!
Overall i give you a 6

Eh, not karma

not bad animation, but it wasant karma at all, i was expecting there to be a chain of events showing why the eagle had bad karma thus ending in its demise, but no, u jus made it die for no real reason. i mean... in the wild an eagle would be expected to eat that ferret thing.
that is all lol

Ok so....

I understand this was done for a class and all, and the animation really isnt bad at all, the music and sound effects... well they were good enough i guess.

How this made it on the front page is beyond me though, i believe i've watched this same movie a million times before, maybe not this exact flash, but still the general story.

Nothing original about it, nothing funny.... and i dont see what the hell this has to do with karma.
