I wrote a script for a Portland, Oregon newscast featuring the true story of how they were chopping down cherry trees in chinatown in hopes of improving the neighborhood. Everything mentioned in the newscast was taken from true events happening at the time I created the animation.

I even threw in a few commercials I scripted and animated for the project.

It's a pretty long animation but worth watching especially if you're from PDX

there was only one other person involved in the project- my husband who helped with the voices otherwise everything was wrote and animated by me

Yeah...where did we go wrong when Portland started hating tree? Whats up with that? I'll bet if we took wasintons slogan of "The evergreen state" that I see on the Trimet buses all the time...this sort of crap wouldnt be happening. Maybe if there taking the wood, and building into the homeless shelters we need, it might be okay, but its not looking that it?

Anyway, my props out to the people living in P-town. I gotta say, I love my city, and I love our friendly people, but still, I cant stand the thought of walking downtown without the site of the blooms of thoughs trees anymore.

That reminded me of the the shitty local news I used to watch back in Michigan.
Seriously they would come up with the most random stories too.
"Old lady looks in mirror and is convinced she sees young woman."
Or something stupid like that.
Nice job.
A little slow with the flash to audio, but still good.

well... i'm ashamed to say... i'm in the portland/beaverton oregon region, and thats what local TV is like. I suggest making another one, but please, work more on smoothing out the animation and maybe getting some voiceactors

thanks for your advice! yeah the animation is pretty jagged, I'll admit I wasn't a flash guru back when I made this 3 years ago so it is ugly in some aspects, but hey I did what I could in the small amount of time I had to make it for school. I would love to go back and smooth it all out and fix all the problems but time seems to be a problem for me :( oh well, hopefully someday

but yeah thanks for letting me know what you think of it :)
