An "animation" made up of little sketches about the idea of a regular duck becoming a superstar, for no particular reason.

The drawings were done in the back seats of road trips, and doodles in public. I wanted to make something quick and ended up dragging my feet for a while, so I'm releasing it now to be done and move on. It's pretty bad, but hopefully it's worth a laugh!

Sorry for the horrible quality, don't resize jepgs in flash kids.

The funniest part of this for me, personally, was how Obama referred to the duck as "a true democrat." That was pretty good.

However, I don't think this is worthy of the spot on the Top Submissions list. Even in the top 100. Out of all the hundreds of thousands of submissions, this isn't the fourth best by a wide margin.

Not to knock you, of course. I think my gripe is mainly with the people who vote here and how they don't really put much thought into things before they hit 5 Stars.

Having said that, this was a really nice animation that was brimming over the edge with style. I hope we all get to see more animations as a result of your doodles. Keep it up, chap.

Dude you're blowing my mind right now- it was in the top 100?!
I don't know why people would even still be watching it, much less voting on it... When I posted it the average score was 2.5 stars!

Anyway, thanks man!

An interesting film about a duck being a hero. I liked it.

Well thank you!

I thought this was fairly decent. From the title, I thought it was going to be from the Duck Division. That's a group on this website, right? I am pretty glad it wasn't. It would have just been one of those spam flashes. I like how quaint it is.

I was thinking that there was going to be some final punchline to this. It never really happened. Two million views isn't much for YT, I read that right, didn't I? I imagine this happens to most Internet animal celebrities. A pity they live shorter lives.

CameronMc responds:

The punchline was supposed to be the general goofiness of the escalation throughout the short, but yeah, it definitely could have been paced better. I did the audio in one afternoon then timed the different shots to that, so that'll probably give you an idea of how careful I was with it.

It was supposed to be less about this animal becoming an internet celebrity, and more about this silly mildly interesting thing that, because of pure luck, became something much greater than itself.

Maybe a little to nuanced for a silly doodle animation :)

As simple as it is. It has style. Like it!
The background noise when the trumpet's playing is a bit unnerving though.
btw I'm surprised that I was able to recognize Obama. ^^

CameronMc responds:

Yea,h this is the first time I mixed audio I recorded myself so there were some kinks that I need to work on. I used a guitar hero mic and I'm surprised it turned out as good as it did! Glad we didn't throw you with the shoddy impressions and doodles :)
