First Flash Animation 001

Hey all. This isn't literally the first work I've done in flash, but it's the first presentable piece. 5 or 6 years ago, when I was younger, I think I submitted an animation of a ball bouncing. That was actually my first animation. This one is my second, but still officially call it my first because I don't think a bouncing ball counts.

There's not much to it. The beginning suggests that the animation will try to convey some deep meaning, but really this is just me scewing around. I intend to make more plot-oriented pieces in the future.

As you can probably tell by the extremely scribbly lines, I drew the majority of the frames one-by-one. The rest is those frames being animated in a loop. I know this is the most inneficient way to do flash, but I found it was the easiest way to just pick up and go.

Platform: Adobe Flash CS3
Frames: 1204
Length: 1 min 40 sec
Time spent: approx. 10 hours

Strange yet satisfying...

In my opinion, this is pretty good for a first animation. It's slow at first, but as it progresses it gets more complex. It's weird, but it's different. It's not crappy because it's its own style. Kinda hard to express in words, but I hope you know what I mean.

Also I totally agree. Ninjas FTW.
