an old photographer just can't get his door to close...
A short 30 second... pulled it off in 1 month. Calling it done, not the greatest film there is, but hopefully it makes you laugh alittle and think back to your old days. ;)

Sound design is done by me, song material provided from sound minor and my profs.

The sound being off has been troubling me, because they shouldn't. :/ It seems to change according to each user's internet speed. If you know a way to fix it, inform me.
They are not off when it's on youtube in movie file: er/Altarstudio

you really need to fix the sound! the animation and drawing were actually really good, it just seemed crap cos the sound didn't sync with it. Although it was done at a low frame rate, the animatin itself IS really good so don't let the comments get to you. Should be a kinda longer delay between each door opening though, to make the movie's flow more even. Like, story-wise it would make for better timing I think.

As for fixing the sound, well....
all the sound effects should be in separate audio files, and they should be set to "stream" in the flash properties panel. It feels sorta like you've got all the sounds in one big file that plays at a different speed to the movie. If that's the case, then you should set this file to "stream" also and adjust the animation to sync with it.

ah, that could be it, it's typical for normal sound designer to do one big flat file that's sync to the film itself, but it doesn't work with flash. That's a good clue.
I had no such problem when all the sounds are separated into different layers. :)

You watch it and then you go *shrugs*.

Nice animation though.

This could really be improved upon.

Well, the art was ok. Even if the character design for papa was pretty simple and plain.
The thing that really bothered me wasn't even the lack of originality in the writing or the lack of music - it was the really dodgy animation. It was a sore to watch papa moving in such a cheap way!

I understand that this wasn't really supposed to be THE best movie ever, but I think you should have worked on it a bit more. Don't let that get you down, tho, because you obviously have talent and you can make some great animations in the future.

the audio didnt match the animation. And I dunno about the concept. Cool video... just not front page material.
