Polar Bear

First of all, the song (Limerick!) is in Dutch but you don't really need subtitles. It explains itself. But, there's a translation below.

"The polar bear only wants bad weather. Hailstones and ice don't hurt him at all"
"When will the sun shine, when will he disappear" (repeats)

Second of all, ijsbeer is Dutch for Polar Bear (Ice bear litterly). So there you also learnt a little something! :)

Third of all, Flash only didn't cut it, so I had to use lots of 3D elements and After Effects to get this right. That's why it's embedded. But don't worry, it's base is Flash!

Be sure to watch the credits. It contains bonus animation :)

You might also enjoy my showreel of 2007 and 2009. Visit my website (http://www.aniforce.nl/) or my Newgroundspage (http://aniforce.newgroun ds.com/flash/)

Liked the combinations

I liked that you had a 2D and 3D look to this. I read in an earlier comment that you used flash and After effects. Was this a movie that you converted in to an SWF or was this always a SWF?

Anyhow, I agree with people that say the fan bit was good. I also liked the bright colors.

aniforce responds:

I used flash to draw elements, and animated it in After Effects. The background and the pinguins came from Cinema 4D. It's embedded into a flash :)


I know you from Ryan Dupree, Ma-College ^^

He told me about you. I didn't know you put em on Newgrounds! Awesome work.

aniforce responds:

Ah hi there :)
I hope you like it, we worked really hard on it! Oh and you should see my other film that is on the frontpage right now. Dirty obsession.
Thanks for watching

Perfect for the winter season!

The penguin and the fan at the end made me laugh and was almost the sole reason for a five.


the idea with the fan was great!
