First animation from university. We were given a brief of imagining a story from a certain location in the city of Newcastle. I used 2d traditional and Flash for the animation, Photoshop for the backgrounds and put it together in Final Cut Pro. Fun times

nice bird

not bad. i feel that i got the general idea of the story, but it would seem as if the elements of the man's dream were placed because they were cool, first, and only loosely worked together to describe the old man's situation, which i think should have been the priority.

knit-picking: the pigeon that looks up at the beginning of the animation appears to be at a very strange angle. i don't know if this was desired?

awesome :D

i heart that song always in tony hawks the game but i still don't know how it is called, can you tell me by PMing me please? :P thanks

it was...ok

i would've liked it much more if you had either
a)kept the same animation style throughout the whole thing
b)put more time and effort into the dream sequence

Pretty good

Ive just started an animation and illustration course at uni too so I know the weird techniques they ask you to animate with. I think this would have been better purely flash or purely proffessional, but thats what they ask!

Choppy, blurry, photoshop?

The ending made it somewhat worth watching, but other then that it just seemed all slopped together.
