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.

That was awesome!

That was one of the best animations I've watched in a long time, thoroughly enjoyed it! I definitely think it was enhanced by the fact it was hand drawn rather than produced digitally.
Music and sound effects were absolutely spot on, the dialogue was perfect and I loved the part where he suddenly started speaking German!
My only qualm was that at times it was a little hard to see what was happening because the action was quite small on the page, although this did contrast well with his growth spurts! Maybe zooming in on a central square following the credits rather than viewing the entire page might have made it slightly easier to watch, but really it didn't detract that much.

In all, a brilliantly made animation, with a wonderfully whimsical plot that could've been fractionally better if it was a spot larger! I can't wait to see what you produce next!

next time I will try to make better compositions so its easier to see, but hopefully it was easy to see for the most part.

Lotta patience.

What program did you use to put them together? I've tried doing this, but the time between each frame was much to large. Anyways, nice, loved the turtles POV.


turtleco responds:

helium frog is the program, and its FREE!!!
