-Thanks for the reviews
- I ended up getting a B for this. To be honest my preliminary sketchbook was awful though.
school art project 2007-2008, and my last, hope you enjoy it.

topic was 'modern design & animation', decided to do a mock interview style short cartoon about the nature of art (although the interviews are spontaneous and unrehearsed). I thought the best way to get funny/watchable answers at short notice would be to probe into the minds of 11 year old kids.

my target was to create expressive character designs and accompany them with equally emotive body language and movement. my main focus in this was to make something that - aesthetically - looked completely different than anything i had done before, hence my first time using live-action as a primary medium. i rented a HD video camera for that but unfortunately only a standard tape so it came out averagey and i wasted money... oh well.

please enjoy!

Awesome, i love when people animate around the voices like this. It lets us imagine we're the ones interviewing people we've never met before, and it really is a practice in conveying body language through voice and observing expressions. I love it!

haha that is awesome keep it up!

i haven't been on newgrounds for very long but i have definitely seen a lot of the normal flash animations (not saying they are bad) and this is the first one that i have seen that has been combined with real life! i think when you combine animation with real life it's a lot more interesting and makes me want to watch it. also the answers you got were very good, i didn't expect anyone there to know when animation was invented! thank you so much for making this, if you have anymore with the same style i am going to go watch it right now but if you do not please make more! very good, 10/10 and 5/5 from me. :)

very nice

the only thing is that there accents was annoyin. haha
but maybe its just me.
im not being racist or anything i guess its just me.

Very nice!

I like the style! I don't think I've seen it anywhere else on Newgrounds! Although, for some reason it reminded me of Sesame Street even though Sesame Street didn't do anything like this. I think it was just that you used kids. By the way, are you in Britain? I just noticed that the kids had very pronounced accents.

Anyway, nice smooth animation that went well with what the kids were saying. For unrehearsed interviews, you got some marvelous answers although I doubt those boys did asking their teacher when art was invented. Anyway, nice intervies and I don't know what you're talking about 'averagey' film and wasted money. An HD camera is never a waste of money as long and you continue using it and the film was lovely!

Anyway, 5/5 and 10/10. Beautiful job.
