Pizza Waffles

Author Comments

This has been a hell of a long time coming. I spent a month and a half storyboarding it for a storyboard class last semester, and this semester I learned how to do some awesome frame by frame animation. I took my old storyboard and animated it, and this is what I got. There was a lot at the beginning that got cut off, but I figured people don't need much exposition for freaking Pizza Waffles.

This was my final for 2D animation - we had to make a 30 second animation at 24fps, using everything we've learned. Safe to say I'm damn proud of this cartoon. It's definitely the best thing I've ever made. I tried bullshitting my way through frame by frame with the SRM Star Wars Holiday Special I did back in November, just to see what it was like. Safe to say, this cartoon is leaps and bounds better than that one.

Anyway, please watch and I hope you enjoy it! If you have any questions on how to make pizza waffles, ask me! This is based on a true story after all.

Great progress!

Another step forward with the animation - sure, some of the drawings that you've done don't look quite as smooth as they could with your old style, but that's the beauty of Frame By Frame, as more focus is directed towards the drawing side of things and errors there become somewhat obvious.

A little touch up here and there gives you an incredible looking piece that's certainly a great show of what you're up to now for the works that you're creating. If anything, I'm a little disappointed, as this means you're animating less submissions, but the higher quality does certainly make up for it, certainly.

Perhaps a few more voices later in the piece, when the guys are staring in wonder at the land of pizza waffles, just for added ambience. I know that you cut it, but perhaps an indicator of something along the lines of "Okay, so we're going to take a waffle, throw some pizza toppings on it, bang it in the oven and POW! Pizza Waffles!" for an intro, making it really simple and hard hitting. I'm not advocating education for those too slow, more that it would help completion of the piece.

There was actually about 30 seconds of animation that was going to be in the beginning where the guy with the hat faints and the other guy makes a pizza waffle, replete with crazy camera angles. If I had a whole semester to do that, I would've. I only had half that time so I focused on the core of the animation, which is the journey to Waffleland.

This cartoon has some ugly frames in it, no doubt. There's a cleaned up version with MUCH better backgrounds on Youtube called "Pizza Waffles DELUXE" that I uploaded. I'll eventually get around to updating the .swf here, but eh.

My output has slowed to a crawl, but I'm learning a lot more than I used to be. The cartoons are also of generally better quality, but I lost a lot of fans due to the wait and change of styles. Glad you liked it though!

Battosai810 responds:

You're either with me or against me on this one.


There is no way you can tell me that there weren't any mushrooms in those pizza waffles hahaha.

Ya know, I think of stuff like this.

That's delicious, but potentially bad for your health.
