History of an Animation

**Quick Edit** No way. Thank you all so much! I've wanted Daily Top Five since I started animating, but I never imagined getting Daily 1st. This is an amazing honor. Thank you! **EDIT 2** Front page?! How did this happen?! Thank you so much!

So, a quick note about what this movie is and how it was made. Rest assured, it DOES belong here on Newgrounds. I filmed all the live action stuff and then animated everything on top of it. You can probably already tell, but any animation was done in Flash. The music was made by a friend of mine, Eno, to go with the movie (I owe him a big thank you for that). I'm sorry about the really long load time - it's a huge file, as I used a lot of live action footage in addition to the animation, and I couldn't bring myself to cut down on the animation quality. Also, if you like this, please check out my last two films, music videos that I wish got a bit more attention for all the work I put into them. Thank you all for your support, and I hope you enjoy my latest movie!

A quick explanation:
Since I'm graduating this year, I decided to put together a movie that would take people through my history as an animator, showing them the different styles and techniques I have used from my first flipbook to now, and hopefully to my future.

A little longer:
A started with post-it flipbooks, simple stuff like jumping and flipping.
I went on to scribbled color animations on index cards, usually transformations.
I briefly experimented with sketches on plain paper - the frame rate was slow and it looked pretty bad.
Finally, I ended up with flash, and computer animation.
One day, I'd like to make full, real movies. At this point it's just a dream, but here's hoping!



this was kinda of boring

i give u 15/10

do i need to say more?

If Jojovill lost to anything, I'm glad it's this.

Haha. I know I'm a bit late here but on the same day your animation acheived front page, Jojovill episode five was Daily Second. Not that I think it's the greatest animation around but I was curious to see what it lost to. Let me just be first to say... I'm glad it was you and your very inspiring animation that it lost to.

The transitions were amazing. The whole thing was planned beautifully. And while the lighting could've been better in some places, you still did really, really well!

Here's a shout-out from a voice actor who hath seen many-a animation... but quite possibly, none quite as intriguing.

Take care! And keep it up!

Wow. That was a very thoughtful, very kind review. Thank you very much for your advice - I did the best I could with house lights, windows, and cardboard, but I'll try to get some more lighting experience before my next film (my next one that incorporates live action, that is). Anyways, I really appreciate that you both liked my movie and took the time to tell me so. Thanks!
