The Worm and the Apple

I made this over the course of a couple weeks for my Concepts in Multimedia class which is a part of the Interactive Design and Video Production Specialist degrees at Hennepin Tech.

It was fun to make, hope it gets a chuckle out of you.

Eh, not terrible

The animation in this was alright, but the main fault was that it did not have that much uniqueness to it. I did find it better than a lot of some other stuff because the part where the bird snatches the worm is really good. I don't think I have ever seen a bird do something like that. It seemed like you were getting a little cliched with the wise man thing. I do not understand how this was supposed to be funny. While the lesson was a good one, it seems like it's the kind of lesson that has been done many times before.

This was good in that the background was in very good use. I liked how the worm's cartoonish design contrasted with the realistic background. That apple reminds me of how I have eaten everything from Christmas except a single apple! It has been a long time since I have heard about a worm appearing in an apple. The characters need to have some more depth to make the submission out of the ordinary.

A Moral With Comical Value Included

The artwork for the most part is great, the worms, bird, and apple were all nice. The animation was nice at some points, but when the worms were talking the lip-sync was kind of off. The voice acting was actually pretty good. The sound effects were superb and your background music choice was superb as well. The storyline is pretty basic, it makes sense and it actually gave me a chuckle. Overall I'd give you an A... but on Newgrounds I'd give you a B.

quite good

not much animating involved and the voices were too quiet, I ahd to turn up my volume to hear them as well as drift


The animation was pretty sloppy (Please don't relate this to my spam), yet pleasant. The voice clips had good quality, but I had to turn my volume up to hear what they were saying. It ended too abruptly but did put a smile on my face.


TheElSalvador responds:

You're crazy... the voice quality was the worst thing about this. Much too tinny.


that was pretty good but next time use more charcters, udeas, areas and make your own background and items, but i injoyed watching it

TheElSalvador responds:

I did make the backgrounds and items. I went out and took many pictures with my digital camera. I also went to the store and bought some apples and took pictures of those. I then chose the most fitting pictures and photoshopped them a bit. Like I said, everything contained in this flash I personally created... except for the crow caw. I got that from a public domain sfx site.

I definitely plan on expanding in the future, this was just the first animation project of my college career.
