This is a multimedia project i have been working on. It is my first official Flash animation.

Im pretty amped to hear what people think of the story and the animation.

Its a parody so have a laugh :)



DUDE! Epic cartoon man! Ek het my gat af gelag! Awesome job!

Btw ons moet weer kuier...

Pretty good

So I guess this is what you might get when you cross Forrest Gump with snails, heh. It's a pretty original idea parodying Gump. The voice acting was pretty good. I think if you had more time you should always seek a female voice for female roles and really try to sound how Tom Hanks did with his inflections with words.

The animation was fine. I think you need to add some more detail to the backgrounds especially when he does his world tour. It really took away from the movie. The overall story was pretty humorous and the end was pretty fitting. All in all, pretty good.

Hehe indeed! Thanks man! yeah i agree with ya! i was running low on time so the backgrounds were quite simplistic. but i sure will improve on that. thanks alot :)

I like it!

There are some obvious deficiencies here, mostly in your drawing and animating skill, but the story and music more than makes up for that. In particular the music was fantastically chosen, and really added to the overall entertainment value of the animation. Story wise it was solid, with plenty of jokes (though the final one was a bit cheap and left the animation feeling a bit flat), while I was impressed with the voice acting.

My only real criticism was that the lip-synching was a touch out with the voice acting, and that you can always improve your animations (maybe put more effort into the backgrounds, rather than having them largely stationary).

Still, one of the best animations that I have seen today, so a really good effort.
