EDIT: Sweet merciful hams. Thank you thank you thank you thank you for the front page, NG. Thank you sooooooooo much. You all rock.

It's that guy that made that dumb pony cartoon bringing you something completely different. And by completely different I mean it's exactly the same as everything else but everything is completely different. Are you excited yet? Because you should be.

Back in the month of August, in the mystical land of Florida, a totally rad group of rapping pirates asked me if I had what it took to make a three and a half minute long music video in less than a month. After an intense two week grind of animating and growing a beard, this was the result. If you like the music, go let them know on their youtube channel. They're pretty great people.

Technical stuff: This was animated beginning to end over a two week period at 12fps with flash puppets. The BGs aren't the greatest, and I apologize for that. I would have gone back to spruce up the BGs but I simply haven't had time with me boosting my portfolio and working on solo projects, but again, this was a two week animation sprint and I'm very proud of what I did. Rough storyboards and BGs were provided by my brother, Scott DeWitt. Without him, this simply would not have gotten done. Mad props.

On a side note, I want to publicly thank Captain Dan Dolan and his crew for this amazing opportunity. If you hadn't asked me to do this, I probably wouldn't have gained the momentum to keep animating like I am right now. You guys are awesome.

PS: Sorry for the huge file size. Dunno how I pulled that off. Also the youtube version is better. Less chuggy and some content is missing because I have no idea where the polished version ran off to. But you probably won't notice :(

The Rap is amazing but..

I give it 10 stars for the rap and animations, but in reality Ninjas are swift and hide in shadows, not in the middle of the road
