My first flash submission!

This is the first in a series of educational shorts on biology. This episode features the outline of how (biological) viruses work.

Next episode: chromosome structure!

Music: Nickel Creek: Ode to a Butterfly

Apologies due to: sound quality (I need to get a mic), excessive use of tweens (I'm new to the animation world.)

All reviews welcome!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


you really explained that well;)
there are just 2 points i did not like,
1: the music... it was to happy for a bacteria destruction ;P
2: the artwork could be pollished up a little. but as it is now, it serves for the purpose of the movie (lol, that is probably bad gramar)

but really, nice job... keep making them;)

Hey! Thanks for the review!
Yeah I think the music could have had a bit more thought put into it... I'm working on that for the next episode!
I'm trying to improve my artwork, but I get very frustrated as I'm using a micro-mouse which isn't perfect for the job..
Once again, thanks for the review: much appreciated!

Keep it up!

It's awesome that you're interested in making educational flash vids - NG could really use more people like you. :P

The only other one I could think of could be "Mario Teaches Physics," which was REALLY well done. You should take a look at it if you haven't!

About your flash - The music was really distracting... Perhaps you could get something more subtle, like the Windows XP installation theme as an example. Something "Sciency," you know? Maybe the audio portal has something nice.

The animation really isn't bad for a first submission, and I'm looking forward to seeing you improve!

I'm adding you as a favorite artist, and I hope you'll continue on with your educational vids :D

Good work, and good luck!

Wow, thanks so much for the positive review!

I'm really pleased that people have accepted this submission onto the site, I thought it would get blammed immediately!

Things I'm going to change for the next episode:
Voice audio quality
Less tweening and more frame by frame!

ps it's an absolute honour that you put me on as a favourite artist! Cheers :p

The visauals COULD use some more work. But the music made this light-hearted and you could learn basic things about viruses from this.

Yeah, I'm working on my flash drawing techniques, they're very basic at the moment. I'm very encouraged by the response so far so I'm going to finish the next episode soon!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

it was a nice lesson

I have this stuff on school too atm, I have some points of improvement for you;
the music was anoying, and too loud. it was kinda hard to hear your voice. and the material was a little too short. aside form that really nice. and the virus looked excacly like in my biology book :P

GreyFlag responds:

Wow, cheers mate!
Yeah, for some reason the music didn't want to have its volume turned down, I noticed that about half way through you can hardly hear my voice at all!
Once again, thanks :p


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very Informative.

Well, I gotta say, not bad for ur first flash. 'Twas rather interesting, and I learned
a thing or two. I wish it would be longer, though. 3/5 ; 8/10.
