It is all improvisation with the drawings based around a soundtrack that was created. This movie is complete, yet the FLA file was lost somewhere down the line ( thanks mania! ) and I will not ever be able to add the later mouth movements of the characters. I locked the .swf file too so no import.... All in all I have come to terms that this was done, is done, as done as it is gonna be -- I am good with that. On the strength of its zany-ness and upon the recommendation of my gal's cousin, I submit Louis here.

2002 was when I started to seriously consider Flash for animation. I did all the characters by pencil and paper, scanning them in and even animating some of the sequences with tracing paper, kinda old school. I did the soundtrack , torturing my poor reclusive neighbor Chris, so I did not have to do all the voices myself. Again, like Flora my other submission here, this was early stge flash work, this being the more advanced for the time for me, as far as characters and backgrounds.

FYI: Under the replay button, there is a stupid email button, not obvious, but it will go to armoredbaby; I would remove it had I the availablility. Don't click it.

This is the kind of animation I am returning to lately, yet more refined and with some different tools, plus with a great deal more patience.

It was okay.

I laughed a few times and that is the most important part. I do not care much for graphics and such, I just hope that it is funny.

Thanks man :-)

Pretty good :)

I liked the animation in this flash even though the graphics weren't the best, but they were still good.

The problem i had is that the flash moves a bit too fast and is pretty random until you really start to pay attention. That is why it is sorta hard to follow the whole thing. Also i really don't like how the people don't have mouths except certain parts and then even they don't move.

I liked the bi-polar bear idea it was pretty cleaver. You are also good at voice acting if you did all of them voices. So that is another good point about this flash.

Now i think it was all put together really well and i would like to see something with more of a starting off plot in the beginning.

Overall: Give me more!


Armoredbaby responds:

Thanks man! Appreciate the review.

Sorry

I didn't like this, the voice acting and dialogue was all at one level and pretty much all monotone with no forward direction or real increase in intensity. I thought the sound quality and lack of passion in the voices made the voiceovers sound a bit repetitive and flat. So work on your enthusiasm and write a script that is less dreamy and more focused with something that draws your attention.

The animation was alright, very decent.

Mind you this ws 2002 -- but I welcome such comments. Even for old stuff I welcome such unfiltered comments -- sometimes you do things and friends will just praise it.

This story was an improvisation -- so dreamy is what happens . Thanks man!

I liked it but there were issues...

About halfway through the flash, the mouths disappeared and it seemed like the scenes were in the wrong order for a few seconds (right before they were talking about 'A'). Weird. All in all, decent humor and decent animation.

Armoredbaby responds:

Yes -- I lost the FLA file! So -- issues were frozen. Thanks -- I just didg the improvisation. The animation was still basic back then -- I did not know any techniques that were comfortable to me. I placed it here so I could get comments like yours and others I am sure might come down the pike, inspiring me at a time when, quite frankly, I need it.

Pretty clever

I didn't mind this at all. The animation was alright, the voice acting was pretty good, and overall plot/play was really cool. I also really like your art style and characters.
Nice job.


Armoredbaby responds:

Thanks man... yeh I have not delved into sleekness nor do I seek to get all slick and " illustratory " Never mind that this was early work, but I am more about writing idea most times and getting it completed is actually the drag. What a luxury if I could find like 50 Koreans LOL
