Thanks for the Daily 2nd and Frontpage.

SO WE'RE CLEAR, this is based on a German Christmas Market held in a Birmingham, not actual Germany, so there are some differences between what usually goes on. That also means there's aren't many, if any, actual Germans. I just named the animation based on the setting.
Sorry to confuse the German audience.

Yes, I know, it's blatantly late for a Xmas themed flash but it can hardly be helped.

This was made for my Narrative and Action module of my Animation course, in which we had to look into a real life event, in this case, the local German Christmas Market, and do an animation based on it, preferably without the use of dialogue.

Hope you enjoy it.

Great animation and artwork! But the content...?

I was impressed, I'll admit. Classic animation and art style. Same as 'Bioshocked', I'm German, so I have a few things to say!! First off, congrats on the Frontpage. And where the hell did you have this Christmas Market?! Beer, again, isn't drank at 'em. And the stereotypical thing of Christmas Markets is the gingerbread cookies. I dunno what they're called (and I'm too lazy to look it up) but they come in shapes of hearts, houses, and other stuff. Geez. Can't believe I don't remember what they're called... But anyways. There weren't ANY candies there!!! Mannnn...

But again, great Flash animation. I love the style you have. I hope you got an 'A' on that assignment. :)

I got 60%, which is 10% below a first. Once again, I am criticised for my dislike of Powerpoint.

Good work but...

Ok! Fact is... that i'm german. Another fact is... that i hate christmas markets. The third fact is... i like your animations. And now on to my questions, because i'm missing some of the german origins at christmas markets.

We germans usualy don't drink beer at xmas markets. We like to drink erm... how do you call it... hot wine? Awww damn it! It is hot wine with a few spices in it and it tastes great when it's cold outside. I miss it in your flash. We germans call it "Gl├╝hwein". Okay... then... where are sweets? We germans usualy also eat tons of christmas sweets there. And another thing is... where the heck is the shiny decoration? There has to be a lot more bling bling if you wanna have fun at these markets (and of course if you wanna enjoy the hot wine too).

I liked the handpuppet best. Looked like my sister after she got up in the morning. ]:o)

Anyway... you did a good job animating and the sound is great too.
The whole flash is great - if you don't know what it's like to roam a german xmas market. *hrhrhrhr*

Any more questions? No? Righty right then. And a happy easter to you!
(Wanna know how we germans celebrate easter?) ^_^

Well in the German Market we had, there was lots of beer, as well as a variety of mulled stuff.
