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.

I can't believe you'r still alive ! :D

After almost 2 years of total inactivity, you come out on newgrounds sending a master which I claim being the best flash I've ever seen. Everything in it was perfect and helped creating an atmosphere which I can't get out even 10 minutes after watching it.

I really appreciate your work as much as the effort you put in it to make everything clever and original. I can also say that the video/music syncro was at is best because we could feel intensely how much she hated this intruder with the movement you gave this girl acoording the the climax, slow movement of the musical piece.

To conclude, I want to thank you again for the good time you gave me by submitting this piece of art. I'm just sad to see 8 years old kids downvoting this simply because they don't understand how hard it is to create Flash animation. I support you and your future project.

Good luck, and good job.

The animation was incredible, especially for an anime styled flash. Brilliant, and I love the fly!

This was an amazing flash. The art work was fab and the music was great. The whole thing just worked really well! I have a sudden urge to squash some flies now...
