Hey Newgrounds, been a LONG TIME. Who remembers me? Anybody? No? Oh, alright.
Back in the beginning of August, our government teacher, Coach Shives, forced us to make a stupid project. The best part? It had to be a song. Now, as much fun as THAT is, we decided as a group (well, I decided) to make an animation about it, forgetting how long animation takes...again.
THIS is that project!
DON'T EXPECT PIXAR-STUFF HERE. Like, honestly, we had 3 days, and even then we reached the deadline without ever actually finishing the lip-sync (which I did afterwords and worked the hardest on in the end). Not too mention, we were PRETTY unenthusiastic about it, granted, we have a reason, this doesn't look like that much fun, does it? Whether that adds to the humor or not is up to you. For me? WHATEVER. So, no, this isn't the next Bonehead or the next Maximillion Bagsworth, but this is, however, a nice little snack, so take a bite already!
And, yes, expect BUTTONS for TIMELINES in all my future animations, and BETTER LIP-SYNC. This should give you an idea of what I'm talkin' about.
Oh, by the way, this took me 6 days, which, in Newgrounds Animator Terms, means 3 days of intense, heart pounding sweat-workshoppin' over my keyboard, 1 day of getting it in on deadline unfinished (still got a hundred, haha), 2 weeks of hating the project, 4 days of turning on the project and looking at it, and 3 days of actually finishing it up.
FUN FACT - For the first time ever, and probably because it was taking longer than I thought, I checked how many times I had to draw lip-syncing mouths 'cuz I thought it give me a chuckle or a giggle or some kinda' chortle. It turned out to be 753 separate mouth drawings. 753, no mouth used twice, frame by frame, 20 frames per second. Dang. That's depressing.
