Wright Rickman and Chris Davidson were working late the night of January 7th, 2008
on an upcoming lamp-related project. Somehow, they found themselves
on the subject of yams and, despite deterrence, Wright discovered the difference;
it was immediately logged and archived for future generations.

Chris and Wright decide to animate this spectacular knowledge.
They split the audio and each made half the animation, then exchanged parts,
and scribbled obscenities on one another's diligent efforts.

This was completed over three days, with minor breaks for sleep or sammich get.
There was also a break where our landlord replaced the windows in the house.

Chris drew a yam with boobs.

Wright defeated the Yamato.

oh no! you're outa control!

super sweet! someday, you have to teach me how to move that fast.


you made something typically seen as mundane and dull (animating) and made it fun to watch, with really catchy, cool music, those flashcard dealies, and the little green text in the top left of the screen.
also, the "days of our lamps" thing was hilarious!
great seeing what goes behind your work - that and it must be fun collaborating with someone that closely on a flash. i work almost exclusively alone and i admit it can get rather dull...
anyway, good work!
