Brace yourself Newgrounds...

I've pooped out a steaming nugget of fresh animation and it runs for a whopping, wait for it, 45 seconds.

I've always been one of those guys who would draw in class all the time, and now it's kind of starting to get out of control. I'm doing it when I go out for dinner, when I'm watching a band, in meetings at work, on the train, when I wake up with an idea in the middle of the night, while riding my bike... well not then but you get the idea.

So I've been drawing all these crazy characters for a while and decided I wanted to see what they'd look like moving around. I didn't want to spend time developing a story or personality for them, so I found a music track with lots of bloopey bleepey sounds and animated them as though they were dancing around and making the sounds with the music, which is National Zombie Attack by Tarteviant.

I believe this is the best animation I've done to date, and at 30 fps (1370 frames) it came to four weeks of hard work to make it, and I might use some of these characters again in a story in the future now that they've developed their own little personalities. Oh yeah, it'll continuously loop back to the start each time the music finishes, so don't sit there all day thinking something new is about to happen...

thrust your pelvis around the room dancing, chuck us a review, and if you like it please submit it to the music video collection.

Stuck out right from the beginning, and it was almost surreal how the animations gave personalty to the sounds I heard.

TheBoogley responds:

Yeah, bleep was a bastard, but bloop was very sexy, and ting was a sweet kid who meant well... or something like that.

I seriously had to make myself click the little X in the corner. I was just staring at the screen drooling.

TheBoogley responds:

Drooling is fun, everybody likes a bit of drooling :)

if anyone happens to read this, reply

which one was your favorite?
my favorite one was the one that look like it had a cymbal/bun head

btw, what program did you use to make the song, i have an awesome idea for a song with all the songs ive heard on newgrounds, i have an AWESOME idea
youll be amazed, but ill have to learn how to use it though

TheBoogley responds:

I didn't make the music, maybe send a PM to Tarteviant. I'd like to learn how to make music too, I've used Audacity and a bit of GarageBand but only for recording voices and soundeffects.

Very nice

You hit the nail right on the head there, this is everything good of what a music video should be.
I especially like how all the characters are dark, and they only light up and move around when they make noise.

TheBoogley responds:

Yeah, they were all lit up all the time and it was way too busy and hard to see what you were supposed to be looking at...
