UPDATE: Thanks for the daily 2nd and the front page!

Music video for "We're Going to be Friends" by The White Stripes

Well it's been a while since I've used Pi Clock!

So this was going to be my Clockday movie this year. But I ended up putting a lot of work into the animatic for it that I just decided to convert it into the movie. The simple art scheme didn't take a lot of time so it worked out well...except that I need a new idea for Clockday now...

Anyway, this flash was also an experiment in the use of depth, movement, and rhythm visual motifs. It was an idea I had around for a long time; I had even made a part for an unreleased collab that was similar in style.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very fluid animation, and well timed to the music.

There's quite a bit to be said about this video; I can see why it got the front page. The simplicity of the drawing style is a little striking at first, but the animation really fits in well with it. The grayscale colors are nice, and all the details in the way you portrayed the scenes really helped to make up for the lack of colors or drawing polish. The animation was really fluid, and I liked how it fit in so well with the music. The movie as a whole really helped to explore the song, and I thought it was pretty cute. XP

As a suggestion, I think the animation could've been fleshed out a bit more, and some of the parts where the characters were walking with a rear view looked a little awkward, and wasn't quite consistent with the rest of the animation. The drawings could've been better, but I think the simple style was sufficient for this project.

Overall, I think this is pretty great, and I can see you put quite a bit of effort and thought into this. ^_^
