I made this for a school project where i had to respond to a piece of art from the harlem renaissance. So i tried to show how evil the KKK was, all though it's also kinda cartoony. The animation is rather poor, but i hope you enjoy:)

it's interesting

I weirdly liked it. Itt's kool ,neat and original!

Good Start

I have done these types of animations so heres some advice.

1. Take your time-you must take your time when making your changes so it isn't chopy. Be patient and go slow.

2. Still camera- Do not move the camera unless needed. Doing this will help keep flow to the movie and cut out some of the chop.

3. Light- try to keep a constant strength of light, plain and simple.

4. Life like- try moving the legs of the peole insead of having them slide around, it looks wierd. This takes extra time but is worth it in the end.

5. There is no 5

6. Same as 5
It was still a pretty good movie just take your time and work on the details. Nice Start!

At first it was pretty smooth, but unfortuntly i had to downgrade it so i could put it on newgrounds

Not bad for a first timer

I do have some advice for you because this animation is terribly choppy. Make sure you don't move the camera when taking pictures and make sure you block the light from the windows because sunlight does tend to change intensity and it will affect your animation. For this last part of my advice..........BE PATIENT!!! Your going to have to capture every single movement in the body parts. The smaller the moves, the less choppy the animation.

awww that was really cute!!!

oh my, that clay animation was one of the sutest things i have ever seen!! i loved how he cried at the end. great job!!!


Personally, I think one of two fewer times running around the tree might've helped, since it seemed to 'drag' a bit at that point, but other than that, I liked it. Although it gave me a strange feeling seeing the guy get skewered like that, I liked the final 'tear'. Kinda thought-provoking in a strange way.
