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 :(

It's groovy too the max

Pirates own so much more booty and ninjas aren't even allowed to celebrate wealth, have sex, or drink. All they can do is sneak around and kill for people that hire them.

SodaKick responds:

If it's war they want, then it's war they'll get. Not like actual lots of death and misery involved war. The super happy fun kind you get in Advance Wars for some reason.

That or Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax. Murder time fun time!

ha ha ha awsome...

this was very well done and i'm not going to repeat what everyone is requesting...
Ok all you ninja posers, listen up! you all failed at being ninja for claiming you are one... in some sects that is punishable by death back in that time... and the magical crap ninjas do isn't real... hand signs (kettsuin or kuju-in) are only buddhist mudra (hand signs) used primarily for stretching... running on water doesn't exist, you can thank Hattori Hanzo (there is four of them look for Masanari aka Masahige Hanzo) for setting that myth up back in the edo dynasty... to know more about the mystisim aspect read about the sanada ten braves... good luck! And keep up the good work, sodakick!
