A story of a traveling musician and his girl who's left at home.

The song is If It Means A Lot to You, by A Day to Remember.

If you don't like sprite movies and/or MapleStory, don't watch this. I made this using BannedStory sprites and backgrounds from MapleStory. :)

I tried to make sure everything was in sync and followable... I think one thing I could have done to improve is lipsync, but I don't know how to do that, yet. This flash wasn't really meant to be lipsynced though... Enjoy!

Criticism and comments appreciated.
EDIT: My Flash is now on youtube, under my channel. :) http://www.youtube.com/us er/ignitioninc

great song but the lipsinging thing is a must i bet u can get some friends to help you out with that. But i love the video i like music videos more than just songs because the music and the video decribe each other like yours did it was a perfect mix of story and music also u may need a bit more help with the La,La La La, La la la part cuz when the boy sang that it was a bit off but basicly great with the sprite music video it was perfect to me everything else was tht is. :3 comming from a amature animator idk if this rating means much but great work. im not lieing in any of this im telling the pure truth.

well...

I love sprite videos, but this would be better as a drawn flash. Also Maple Story isn't the best place to get sprites from since the face ares to childish and can't express emotion that well

Pretty good

Definitely one of my favorite songs, and the story was pretty good to, if you just lip synced it I wouldn't have anything to complain about.(But I can't do any better, I suck at flash)

For converting it to it to a file for youtube google video file converters. I'd recommend Iwisoft free video converter. Then convert it to a h.264 mpg4 file for the best quality so you can upload it to youtube.

Thanks! Yeah, lipsyncing is on my to-learn list. I'll try that software out, thank you!

Distracting.

It wasn't a bad video, in fact it could have been great, but the lyrics talking about EVERYONE singing when on screen NO ONE is even opening their mouths is too much of a contradiction. With all you did it wouldn't have taken too much extra effort to make their black dot for a mouth get larger on each syllable. Since you focus on the female when the female voice is singing and the male when the male voice is singing it seems like it's implied that they SHOULD be singing, but the fact that they aren't, just sort of standing there stonefaced, does a lot to rip me out of the illusion and make me very aware that I'm looking at simple sprites rather than performers. My advice would be to invest time in lipsynching in the future or DON'T focus on the character singing and just make the whole video a montage. Just don't go at it half-cocked or you end up with half a score. XD


IgnitionInc responds:

Haha thanks. I didn't really half-cock it but, yeah, it never really "hit" me how to lipsync. Thanks though!
