so I never have to answer these questions again...
::
it took about 2 months to make, although I didn't animate like every day because I have school and that is important
::
I used the program helium frog to take the pictures of this, which is in fact, free.
::
Tilman made the music, look him up
::
I do not know German, my friend Tilman translated for me
::
I used 1800 sheets of paper
::

well here it is, please enjoy.

Music by Tilman. Short monologue about Tilman. He is a fantastic musician and a hard worker (busting his ass to be a lawyer, wow). He's very nice and very funny. He's also a fantastic artist. He made all of my music in one day, staying up until 4 AM just to finish before my deadline. Please go check out his profile. The guy also made an interactive sound board to teach me German. What a guy.

sorry for the excessively large file, you won't be seeing another one of these for a while.

thanks to Zyphonee for dealing with my crap and importing the file to flash.

and thanks to mindchamber who contacted wade who upped my uploading limit.

also I can't crop out the sides, so don't ask me to, thaaaaanks.

this is my first daily feature, yaay.

also if you wanna watch something surprisingly similar watch jumping turtles, I made it about a year ago, so its probably not as good compared.

very nicely made

but isn't it just a waste of paper?
dont get me wrong here, what im saying is
this could easily have been animated on flash instead of stop motion :P
and maybe it would be better not to use an a4 when you're only using
about 1/10 of the paper maybe less :P
very well done anyways, thumbs up for talking german ballons, that grow?


turtleco responds:

no it wouldn't of had the same effect if it was on the computer. Animating on paper, and animating on the computer are two very different experiences. When I animated on paper it had more thought and attention to detail. And if I didn't use A4 you would see my xbox box behind it, which is something that should be left unseen.

Perfect!

Yeah perfect! Your best things ever made (the next one is "jumping turtles").

The animation was awesome, very fluid and stuff. The story has no sence but very nice and cute. AND, the thing was suprising me is the short time spend on it. Bravo


turtleco responds:

glad you like my stuff, Monsieur ;)

Great job

Really liked the originality of it.

What was the FPS?

Looked very smooth.

Cant wait for more.


turtleco responds:

it was actually 15 fps, surprise surprise. I was tempted to use 18, but it simply looked too fast, which disappointed me. 15 fps still looks fantastic though.
