So two things happened: I purchased Mario Kart: Double Dash and installed Swift 3D. Mario Kart happened first, and I was originally going to animate the whole thing in 2-D with a completely different story. After tinkering with Swift and running through a tutorial, I figured it would look spiffy to make the karts 3D. Also originally, I thought it would be funny to have the winners of the race parade around "Fast and Furious"-style to celebrate, but I ended up making the whole flash based on that idea. I scrapped some storyboards, came up with some new ones, and got to work.
So anyway, I hope it amuses ya! Peace out.
