art in the playground

-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 good

I liked this since it finnaly has a different idea and it is very creative and clever
you have my compliments which will probably mean nothing since i dont know a thing about flash but i wish i did
i wish there was a higher rating then ten :)

button problem

very good emotions and everything, you seemed to get down the the very detail. for the button problem, just right click the screen, click forward, do it again, than right click and click play.

superb (in a french accent)

well done.
loved it, all most like some Jan Svankmajer stuff, with the animation and live action together :) amazing

Interview Gone Right!

Not much to say really, everyone below my review sums it up. From the real life kid(s) interview down to the setting and animation. I don't think I have ever seen anything so amazingly well put together like this in a very, very long time.

Kudos dude.


"a picture of time"
