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!

that was.....suprisingly good

wow, I'm still scratching my head on how you made it seem like a flip book, but it was really just a flash animation. anyway, that rocked!



Nice concept.

Id've been more impressed if you had actually made a flip-book animation, but it looked effective the way you did it. It all felt very slick, although the final flash segment felt a bit of a letdown in quality.



Awsome

Amazing, loved the transitions and the overall look of it



Impressive

Very nice. The transitions are excellent and the music fits perfectly. Very well done. Good luck on the movies man!
