Samson the Foolish

Samson goes womanising but gets more than he bargained for. The tables turn when his powers return while in prison. I made this as a follow up to 'Samson the Terrible', but you really don't need to see the other one first.
Even though this story's from the Bible, there's no deep meaning here. It's still a great yarn, and the story anticipates a far greater leader of the Jews, who isn't plagued by all Samson's foibles and rampant immorality.

I started work on this before my son was born, and now he's 10 months! Hard to find the spare time these days.

I've made the file smaller and fixed some of the lip sync, but it's hard to get just right on a swf.

Check out the rockin track 'Falling to pieces' by Australian band Intone, and the cheery 'Everybody's looking' by the Flying Colours.

Nice animation.

Your work shows good skill, the art just looks so settled that I get the feeling you could pump out art and animation quickly if you needed to. I felt like the ending could have been emphasized more dramatically but I guess it's okay since you were doing the storybook narration thing.

I'm not religious anymore but the Samson story was/is my favorite biblical story. There was this old movie "Samson and Delilah" that always got me so emotional because of the build up to that final scene with the pillars - the screenplay really made you feel the story.

You make good stuff, good luck on your future work!

Nice work mate
