Alright! Daily Third! Thanks a lot, guys! Weekly 5th too!
Round 1 entry for Albino Black Sheep's Tournament of Flash Artists 2012, where animators have three weeks to animate a cartoon around a theme.

Round theme: "The end of the world."

It's about time I made something! Last time I updated anything that wasn't a collab was about three years ago! First time I got to animate Sarah here in a speaking role, too.



Thoroughly enjoyed this. Great expressions and animation here. My only gripe really is that it kind of ended a bit too suddenly for my liking, but this is only nitpicking. Well done!

In the context of strict deadlines and story requirements, this is actually very well done. I never experienced any desynchronization issues with audio, and nothing really took from the overall flash. It was worth a good number of laughs and was a creative approach at the round's theme.

I won't say "I hope you win the TOFA" because there are others that I think are just as deserving, but fantastic job nonetheless. 5/5 on both scales.

I didn't have any problem with out of sink audio. I thought it was a great concept. The animation was exceptional. Great work!

The animation was good, the idea is pretty solid but the voice work as well as static really bring the entire thing down.

It was a nice touch with little flash details showing up. But in general, the poor acting and static ruined anything that might have been a joke to me. Better luck next time.

Harsh. :(

I found out the hard way that the judges take more points away for audio syncing incorrectly than sub-par sound quality. Flash seems to have this weird glitch where if a movie is long enough, streamed sounds will not sync up right. The only way to make the sound match up perfectly is to export audio as ADPCM, which works, but brings the quality down.

Maybe next time, I should look into uploading video. At least then I can export the sound as raw when converting a swf to an mp4 or something... I don't know how these other folks are doing it, though; The movie uploader only seems to let me put up swfs.
