*edit* FRONT PAGE!! huzzah!

Hello Poogrounds... see what I did there. :3

This is a piece I made for The Animation Club in Melbourne who have a screening night called Secret Handshake on the last Tuesday of each month.
Well, I should say, had a screening night, because November's was the last one... :(

The theme for this month was practical jokes, and I came up with this... I thought it was time for The Boogley to finally make another appearance.

I really just wanted to focus on characterization and acting in frame by frame animation, which is why I've kept everything very minimal, with no background elements. I'm not so much happy with this movie as far as it being entertaining, it's story, or the sound, but I'm happy with the way the characters move. I think I'll make more stuff along these lines, but with more attention to story, sound and other areas neglected this time around. The sound is very subtle and soft... you might need to turn it up a bit.

Okay you bastards, watch, listen, and leave me a review. I love recieving any suggestions, insults or suggestions as to what I should eat for dinner tonight.



that was the first bit of clean humor on the frontpage in a long time

TheBoogley responds:

clean and shiny! :D

Oh boogley,

you're such a silly man!

Like always, awesome PURE frame-by-frame you did there man, colours we're very cool too (:

TheBoogley responds:

silly! :3


Animation flowed really well and I like the overall feeling I got from the style and the sounds and music. Excellent short animation. And I think you should eat Kitsune Udon and Okonomiyaki for dinner tonight.

People find this review helpful!
TheBoogley responds:

Thanks, I don't know what that japanese stuff is, I'll find out though and eat it, with a nom and a nom! :D


I like your animations even though they dont always make much sense.

TheBoogley responds:

Me too! :D

Well Played

A very nice little piece of animation. You did a good job showing the state of both characters without using words, and their reactions were very expressive. There are two minor gripes I have as to the consistancy of the Blue fellow's character.

First, when the Boogley first enters the scene why does the blue character look at him with interest when he is clearly pissed off. It just didn't seem to fit his mood to have a curious smile on.
Secondly, I felt his burst into laughter should have been a little more gradual because it seemed to drastically change without warning. It would have been nice to see a progression (i.e. a smirk.. then "heh"... then "heh heh"... then small laughter... then crazy laughter or something along those lines).

A final minor thing I'd like to point out is that the blue character seemed to have a lot of trouble pushing the Boogley's arm off him. Maybe that's what you intended, but it just seemed like a forceful smack to the Boogley's arm would have done the trick =).

Overall I think you did a very good job with the character of the Boogley, it was consistent and brought out nicely. It was the Blue fellow that didn't seem to flow... Still a very good animation, Bravo!

TheBoogley responds:

Thanks for the feedback sandman, did you notice that the blue guy was much fatter at the start, it's like the boogley made him lose weight as well as cheering him up... I don't know, I just draw them. :3
