Flying / Falling

This here was a uni project (hence the short comings). We were asked to create a 30 second animation on the theme of opposites and this is my submission.

Oh and apologies for the awful 'punch line', it was the best I could fit into 30 secs.

Either way enjoy and I promise my next animation will be longer!

Created using Flash, After Effects and Photoshop.

Note: You can watch it on Youtube/Vimeo in HD if you want:

*EDIT* Yay front page! Thanks all. I cant keep up with all your comments so know that I am reading EVERY single one, and thanks for them, even the bad ones!

P.S. If you're dissapointed by the storyline, go watch my earlier submissions, 'Well, that was easy' and 'The Lost Lake'. They look terrible but they really are choc full of narrative

In respects to animation in school.

Considering how the system in school works, I must say, you did an impressive job. I'm currently animating a 30 second short that's due tomorrow! Started today. But all in all, I think you did an excellent job with the tight restrictions they give you.


I didnt really find it funny due to the fact that the old guy was riding a fish, but you should have made multiple guys flying and falling at the same time.


well the graphics were good but besides what pain says there was no story is their suppose to be a moral to this or something coz the only one i got was sometimes the complex things are not always the best


i love the mix of two different drawing styles.

Short but sweet.

I liked the art direction and the punch line. I don't see why you thought it was terrible? Could do with a bit more animation in the background to bring to help bring it to life.

All up I really did like it. Good job.
