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 :(

Very catchy song!

Gosh, that song was terrific! Haha well anyway, your art is really good, the only thing that threw me off was the animation. From what I assume, you used bone animation, which necessarily isn't bad! It's just that bone animation is good in moderation. Most, if not all of it was in that style which made the characters more like puppets than anything. And then there's their facial expressions, they didn't seem to change much, at all. They had the same expression on their face the whole time which mad them dull and again look like they're puppets. Those are just some things that you can improve on your next flash. Other than that, I absolutely love the art style and I cannot wait what you have in store for us in the future. :]

Love the rap

Rapping is great, animation is great mostly smooth and i love the references you put into the animation. Overall great job, ninja's aint got nothing on pirates ;) main reason being Ninja's fight with honour and wont sacrifice it while pirates use any means neccessary to win and get what they want ;p.
So far all your raps have been brilliant and they are great to listen to.. the animations go well with them aswell. congrats ;D

Ninjas

Amazing considering it was a one man job done in under a month...

But Ninjas are still better.
