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 :(

Hmmm...

This rap was absolutely wonderful, I really enjoyed. The animation could have been a little more interesting, but the method you used for this flash limited what you could do for the most part. Overall it was very well done!

I tried for a little more cartoony! But it turns out pirates have guns and stuff and the pen is mightier than the sword, but apparently not the flintlock glock(another awesome song btw)

If I do more work with these fellas, it'll prolly look like more of this though and I'm fine with it. It's not my personal preference, but I really enjoyed working on it and that's the most important thing. If you want to do something for the rest of your life, you should enjoy it.

Ahhh Snap

Let's see if Naruto can come back from that! Great flash, it accompanied the music awfully well. It is very different from the pony bit, which is why it's so great.


SodaKick responds:

I hear ya. If it was ponies vs ninjas, they'd just try to hug it out. And who wants to rap about that?!

EPIC!

Haven't seen such an amusing and good flash in a while!
Very good job. The lyrics are insane and you've totally annihilated all ninja's out there!


SodaKick responds:

Throw your hooks up and be sure to tell the good captain on his facebook page.

Hahaha.

Well done. Clever animation, well drawn, good song, sounds pretty good, generally entertaining.

Nice job, man.


SodaKick responds:

Danke!

They write some great pirate rap. If I could pick any other song to do for them, it'd be Ship2Ship. That song is bananas.

Aaaah Finally

I had to watch 3 crappy loops before this. Finally. EFFORT! Nicely done. Personally my fav part was the intricate pirate garments, yar they be perty to look at. Also I enjoy a good ninja bashing. Who doesn't?
