I wanted to animate the tutorial from the get-go, but didn't have any ideas of how to make it entertaining. I had a different idea and the audio already recorded (basic spoken instructions with some bad jokes thrown in) but I hated it. Anywho, on the way home from work, nothing was on the radio, so I started playing with the "I am T-pain" app on my iphone, picked the "bartender" track and improvised the audio in this Flash. After that I just did some [very] limited animation with the screenshots I had for the text version of the tutorial that got scrapped.

tl;dr version: I freestyled the song in the car and drew pictures to it.


Haha neat, and you freestyled it?

Really not bad. And a great idea overall. Sure, graphics aint superb, and maybe some more frames in the flash screen, with sharper quality for the icons, wouldn't have hurt, but together with the song one knows what to do. So yeah, I would say your project is not perfect, but a complete success, atleast its my 5 bucks worth


First tutorial that is funny and so usefull... +5 +10 and added to favoritees woah man you rock :D

Figured this out a while ago

But it is definitely the best way. Just so everyone knows, double clicking the red lines will select groups of them faster.

Ha ha, brilliant

Best Flash tutorial since How to NG Animator God.

People find this review helpful!

It was okey.

As i mentioned in the summary, it was OK.

To start things of, it didn't have a preloader which almost made me shit myself when i was browsing another page and the music started ( my headset volume was kindah high though, hehe).

Since this was more of a music video and the main focus of it is the singing, i expexted some lipsyncing.

Not only that, but there wern't too many animated parts in there. Mostly still pictures that changed every few seconds. It might work to a certain degree, but i'd surely like to see a few more frames inbetween the sceenes.

The artwork was choppy in some parts, you should have focued a bit more on that considering that there wern't too many "pictures" in there.

However the music was kinda catchy. I liked it. But since flash isn't exacly built for music, the quality was pretty low.

The main idéa of the movie was great, having a tutorial ON flash shown IN flash then twisting it in a comedic way :)

In general it was an okey flash submission, the length was good, i liked the music, etcetera, etcetera..

So i'm giving this a solid 6 / 10 and a 2 / 5
