Yup, audio is botched at the punchline. I ain't goin' back to fix that now. TAKE ME AS I AM.

My first full-length cartoon! My inspiration was years of playing games and perusing forums, laughing at 2cool4school usernames. This was made in a little over a week with Flash CS5.5 and a mouse (I should probably get a tablet).

Rant below (you don't have to read it).

I was so surprised when my first big Flash project was completed without any technical difficulties. ... HAHAHAHAHAHA YEAH RIGHT. I learned about everything that could possibly go wrong the hard way. I made the entire video in 1280 x 800. If I want to upload this to YouTube I have to convert it to 1280 x 720. And I will make those adjustments. Painstakingly. THANK YOU Newgrounds for allowing wonky dimensions and resizing the embed. Why can't YouTube put up with my crap? Oh, and Flash won't export to .mov so I have to export to an image sequence and re-compile it into a movie, and then re-add audio. I let Sequimago handle the compiling, but there's something wrong with it and towards the end of compiling it starts taking up to 5 minutes per frame. So after literal hours of tying up my computer I find another free alternative. But then I'm having trouble re-syncing audio. And ONLY THEN do I find out I've created the entire movie with the wrong dimensions. I was slightly peeved.

Whatever, next time I won't screw up. :D

i though the animating was great and the joke was funny, but i would really work on the art.

A fine first effort! Excellent work on the little details, though a few more could've been squeezed in... (cracker crumbs, PB on teeth, you know) no need to waste frames. Only, do be careful about red-lining the db meter.. had some over-amplified volume crashing, when the dark side spoke out. Conversely, the little guy in front of the computer could've enunciated a bit better.

Screw the YouTube, and ride the tank of mediocrity, here at Newgrounds!

Thanks for the review! It means a lot to me. I'll definitely take more time on the next project, and try to normalize the audio better. I guess since I already knew what he was saying I didn't realize how quiet it was at parts.

And Newgrounds beats YouTube any day, haha! I just want to mirror my stuff there before anyone else does (just in case). Thanks again!
