This is my Movie Jam 2011 submission for Team Smirk Studios.

The original story post can be found on /bbs/topic/1224237/10

I entered late, and it was a lot of fun to do this. I hope you like it!

Also, lots of technical difficulties forced me to exceed 48 hours by maybe a few. I hope I'm not too late!!!
**EDIT** Upon doing the math, I realize that my cartoon still took less than 48 hours to make. The winners of the contest were just chosen prematurely.

**EDIT** The thing on the table that lights up the room is a potato lamp, like in science class.
Also, here is the random story I was assigned:

Two dudes do something that is fairly awesome. Afterwards they share the sweetest fucking high five you've ever seen. Time itself stops in sheer awe of the totally epic high fivage.

"Once finished they realize they are in public and look like complete assholes because ever since top gun came out high fiving is just about the gayest thing ever." - sirjeffofshort

Absolutely hilarious. You should win things. Like gold statue-ey things or at least a commemorative plaque of some sorts.

Thanks for the potato light idea!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Potato lamp was such a good choice.

If I made a potato lamp with someone, we'd probably preform the high fiviest high five in the history of high fives. With maybe a Flintstone-esque jump to really drive it home.

And I agree with ANNAmater, green guy is adorable. :3

Ahahaha, thanks Pollenn! I appreciate the compliment. Looks like my new author comments are a little easier to read! I'm finally getting the hang of all this!

That was THE sweetest high five I have seen. You're right, the coolest since Top Gun. ;-) The green character is pretty cute also. Nice drawings.

Next time I see you...

I'm totally gonna high five the shit outa you haha.

Really really well done guys. The dialogue and acting in the beginning was some of the best you've ever done and the experimenting in art styles really worked for you. It was different yet very smooth both in line art and in animation. Not bad at all for under 2 days work.

Seriously can't wait to see what you put out in the future.

Thanks, Jeff! It's going to be little contests like this that really help me exercise my reaction time and ability to fulfill a deadline. This was a great warm up! I feel empowered.
