-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!

Very different. Very nice.

This is a really good animation, both with quality and content. I've never seen a flash like this. It's stylized just right to fit what I think you were going for. It definetly reminds me of the creature comforts kind of idea.

The sophistication really amazases me.

Man, this is probably the best piece of animation I've seen so far. I especially like how even though the kids talk silly, or act kiddish (duh), in the animation you make those voices through expressions philosophers use. The squinting eyelids, the boy playing the gameboy-everything's great. Keep at it, dude! Maybe a sequel on an etch-a-sketch?
