Shoo Fly

Author Comments

Anyhow, Shoo Fly is a work of "Mickey Mousing" (Google the term, my friends) to the One Piece OST track "Ichijya Tetai" ("One Hour Evacuation"). It follows a woman I call Nelly as she deals with an unwelcome fly. And that's about it. There's not much of a story to summarize.

It's been nearly two years since my last submission to Newgrounds, and what do I have to show for it? One minute of animation. This is more like 3 collective weeks worth of work, so don't get overexcited. The other hundred weeks or so were spent on irrelevant Flash and slacking in general.

Shoo Fly has the most intense frame by frame animation I've ever made, and as a result, I'm very tired of drawing Nelly. Tired of drawing, period. This experience has reinforced my decision to not pursue animation as a profession (maybe character design is more to my liking...). My mouse's left-click button is now a different color from the right-click button. EDIT: I'm sorry to have confused and dismayed some of you - I'm still going to animate stuff. Just not for a living.

Anyhow, you may notice there's a newer trackbar. It's a vast improvement over the one I designed for FFA+ - heavily inspired by Media Player Classic's interface. And by "heavily inspired," I mean "completely ripped off from." The thing will tell you how many seconds have loaded, so feel free to start watching whenever. You can also step through the animation frame by frame, speed through it at any rate (even backwards), and adjust the volume. Clicking the screen or pressing spacebar will toggle play/pause. The rest should be self explanatory.




honestly one of the best things ive seen on here. Great animation, very smooth. And funny. GREAT JOB


Its amazing that you could turn a girl chasing a fly into something brilliant. The animation was the smoothest ive ever seen, and the style was awsome. It went wwith the music PERFECTLY, which complements everything immensly. And it was really cool how you could pause the flash at any time or go frame by frame. Over all.. one of the best ive seen in a long time.

This was one of the best things I have ever seen on NG. It now respectfully sits at number 6 on my favourites list and I have 55 on that list so that is saying somthing. I was amazed by this flash, and I mean amazed. The animation looked prefessional, it was soo smooth and very clean and crisp. Your one of the very few to bring anime into the flash world and not screw it up. The thing that amazed me the most was how extreamly well the music matched up with the movments, and when it was a shot outside the sound died down a little, your a master of sound editing and a master of animation. Well done, I enjoyed it very much.
