Collin & The Wishing Tree

Share Collapse

Fixed a few animation problems I found. They were small, but make it better in my eyes. Also fixed my API thing. It wasn't working.

Running Time: 3:35
FPS: 30

Before you watch, if there are any sync problems or choppy issues, please turn your viewing quality medium or low. Very graphic intensive

Finally, after a month of animating and lip syncing with my mouse and my crappy computer (it freezes all the time) I finished the animated version of Tomamoto's Collin and the Wishing Tree. I would like to say in advance that I am sorry for the filesize, but it was the lowest I could get without taking out too much stuff. I already had to take out a few sound effects and graphics. All the drawings are frame by frame animation, and none of the lips for lipsync will look the same because I drew different lips in every frame (yeah, hardcore :P). The backgrounds were made in gimp, so they are mostly jpgs.

I would like to thank Frozenfire for helping me color most of the drawings, if not all of them in the animation. He really handled everything professionally and even added shading and lines when he didn't even have to. Once again, if you are reading this man, I appreciate the help and you taking 16 hours out of your schedule to color.

Tomamoto created the audio using improvisation with the help of his buddy Matt and came up with a humorous story of magic and wonder. He voices every character in the flash and worked on the sound design by mixing the audio and adding music.

Hope you enjoy the movie. I think I will continue to take my time on my animations instead of trying to make something every week. Take at least a month between submissions to make it extra great. Also, hopefully I will get a tablet soon :). It would be way easier

Edit: Wow O_O, thank you for the daily feature and my first weekly award (I can't believe I received weekly users choice award. I would also like to thank everyone for leaving reviews. I read them all and will continue reading them (or reply when I get the chance). Also, Tomamoto wanted to add that he never was going for a Scottish accent, it just takes place in Scotland that's all. And I would like to thank Newgrounds for the front page. I'll try to bring quality with every submission.

You'd think I'd remember this more given how accoladed it is. This is a great cartoon. The animation is especially good. I was just waiting for when we would get to the death stuff. It's funny how he could turn into a man but not reattach his arm. Magic is weird that way.

The voices are quite funny too. I guess TomaMoto did both story and voice acting. He doesn't do that many stories. I love how the narrator calls it a terrible ending. It truly is.

its a classic indeed


Golden... just pure funny. I'm pretty sure I happy peed a little BWAHH HAHAHA

son of a bitch

That was the funniest thing on new grounds. Loved it! Especially how the accent almost completely changes within the first 60 seconds. Hilarious!


And Colin was left alone...and he bled to death. Oh God, this is horrible, I'm sorry...
For some reason, that was the funniest part to me.
