I wanted to try out making keyframes on one layer, and fill in the colors
on a different layer. Because if there is one thing I don't enjoy too much
about digital vector animation, then it's how you can't have holes in the
lines without having to zoom in and spend time on finding the opening
in the line before you are allowed to add color. And that makes me feel like
I am making drawings for a coloring book for kids, where everything has to be
so clean that literally anyone can understand what the drawings are, no artistic
freedom what so ever. I also wanted to try out this specific "sketchy" style, so I
didn't care about keyframes or composition. So I just started drawing as i went along, no
sketches or manuscript, no plans in advance, just me drawing and coming up with stuff as
I went along, thus ended I up with this chaotic mess.
So, in technical terms, I know that every non-visual department of this flash movie is bad. Because I put no focus on them what so ever. But I would love to hear about opinions regarding visuals. I focused mostly on a non-commercial visual style, and in terms of animation I tried to things in an interesting fashion, and not so realistic in terms of movement and anticipation.
After a few days I got tired of it, and decided to end the film as fast as possible. So when I was "done" but had no audio, I pretty much didn't give a fuck and spent only a few minutes on the audio.
