Originally I thought of making a western themed flash video, but that was a
little bit above my ability to produce so I started looking at alternative
themes. After a lot of initial procrastination, failed attempts and a loss
of creativity I thought about old nursery rhymes not really from my childhood.
After considering the real reason behind Humpty Dumpty's fall and Pop Goes
The Weasel, which would not have been possible as I needed to keep it under a
modest PG13 rating, I settled for A Teddy Bear's Picnic. I had the song stuck
in my head for a while before I realised that I could use it to make a
relatively light-hearted "music video" for it.
This video was a fun learning experience for creating flash content and I now
know that things that seemed relatively straight forward typically aren't and
so are the things which seemed to be simple to implement but weren't.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did creating it. And as long as it
makes someone smile or chuckle, either from nostalgia or whatever other reason,
then I will consider it a success.
