This is one of my entries from the 2008 Tournament Of Flash Artists (TOFA), which I ended up winning. The theme for this animation was "Bob wanted an apple, so..."
I made the crappy music and my bro Donald made the good music.

And TOFA is on again this year, sponsored by Adobe and happening at
So if animating to given guidelines in a short amount of time (e.g. 2-4 weeks) is your kind of thing, head on over to the TOFA website and sign up by nominating yourself in the forum. You only have about a week left to register, now! There's big PRIZE$ up for grabs this year, too. (/spam)
I won't be entering this time, however, so if you can animate better what you see in this video, then you might just win some BIG BUCKS.

A Rare and Honored Find

Absolutely stunning, unlike almost anything else ive seen on newgrounds, this flash shows the true capabilities of the medium and i hope many more are able to see its effect,

Thanks! This was my first animation that actually used some of Flash 8's effects like blur, etc. I still usually don't bother with them, but I went all-out on the eye candy on this.

Not THAT great...

I don't understand why everyone seems so impressed. The animation was nice, yes, and the music suited it nicely.
But is it really so hard to just imagine an apple? That, amongst other flaws I happened to notice.
That's just my opinion, anyway. I guess the symbolism here just doesn't speak to me.

TmsT responds:

Is it really so hard to just imagine someone being unable to imagine an apple because he'd never seen one before? I guess everyone else finds it very easy. Although, granted, it might be kinda tricky to accept that apples are scarce if not mythical early on in the animation, when everything else is so everyday and realistic.
