The Origin of Sonic

If you have trouble with the movie slowing down badly then please right click, select Quality and chose medium or low, this will fix the slow down and may fix lip syncing in places, it may make it worse though!


This movie contains no violence or humor what so ever, I didn't write the script it's basically copied right from the comic, I only made a few changes here and there. So don't blame me if it's boring!
This movie is my first attempt at solo voice acting, I've never done that or lip-syncing before so my apologies if it's not so great. and to make things worse the syncing gets worse when played in a browser for some reason... (sigh)

This movie is basically an animated version of an issue of the Sonic the Hedgehog comics sold in The United Kingdom during the mid 1990's.
The issue in question was Issue #8 and was called "Origin of Sonic" in which there is a flash back of sorts, this is the part I have chosen to animate!

This took 3 days to make, so please enjoy it.

Music is from 'Project Chaos' of OCRemix.com.
