This was the first flash animation I ever made. I made it for my multimedia class which was instructed by teacher who knew less about animation than I did. It took much longer than it should have; since then I have improved by leaps and bounds.
Interestingly, all the other projects in my class were <30 seconds long and all of them that I can remember used stick figures. Because of this, my project was ranked highest in the class, so the teacher had me enter the county computer fair. There were only four other entries in animation, and one was definitely better than mine but it got disqualified, so I advanced to state level.
In the state competition there weren't many 2d animations; in fact, most of the animations were stop motion. Three used lego minifigures, and if you read my first review you'll know my opinion on those. Mine came first among the 2d entries and third overall, which astounded me because, since this was months ago, I have improved so much that I realize how bad this is.
Well, it isn't really bad, but it doesn't take advantage of motion, so it isn't very good as an animation.
You probably don't understand the movie. The idea is a seed created a tree which created an apple which created inspiration for Newton who created writing which created inspiration for Einstein who created an equation which created the atomic bomb which destroyed Hiroshima causing it to create a movement for world peace. Understand it now?
