Thanks everything for the nice comments. This is my first Daily award! I'll try to keep producing more work at a professional level. And thanks to all the people who have bought shirts so far, really appreciate it!


Hey, I'm very pleased to present The Piper's Waltz, my latest animation. This is for the Winter Flash Off Contest. Before I say anything about it, please don't complain that it is in a video format, if you have a problem with it, just don't watch it.

So basically, this is a culmination of everything I know. In this short animation, I used my knowledge of Flash, After Effects, Illustrator, hand-drawn elements, stop motion, as well as probably some others. I think it is my most polished and professional piece thus far. I put a lot of work into it, so I hope it shows. When watching this animation, please keep an open mind. I realize that this is not a direct narration of the Pied Piper, and that is the point. It's supposed to be an experimental interpretation to convey the dark and eerie mood of the Pied Piper. I apologize for the large file size but it is a pretty high quality video with good sound quality.

By the way, there is an easter egg in there that I also worked very hard on. It's really difficult to find, but if you do, I hope you like it. It's really inconspicuous, so many of you will have trouble finding it. Har Har Har!

Also, as a shameless plug, active until Jan. 1st, RAWR! Clothing (my clothing company) is having a Christmas clearance sale where everything in the store is at a discounted price. So please, if you want to help a starving designer, like myself, this holiday season, pick up some shirts. It's a really good deal, and I'll send it out to you by Christmas if you buy within the first two weeks of December.


that was interesting

i really liked it especially the song and next time make another animation like this and it involves red riding hood and keep up the good work



i've never seen animation like this before, it was very cool, and the music was beautiful! you did a wonderful job! *thumbsup*

Loved It

I really loved your flash, it really brought a smile to my face. It has been a long time even sense i remembered that storie yet it being act, played, or told. Thank You. I really enjoyed every minute up and I do hope that you make more.

I give this my best Vote 10 Stars and a Rating of 5!

^^ Thank you

WAY too short!

This movie had a lot going for it. Nice music, brilliant style, and excellent animation... And then it ended. If it had been twice or thrice (or whatever) as long it had been a definate 10/10 5/5.


i love unique things like this, it's a big change from all the anime these days.
