The Toil of an Uphill Run

Well here it is. I worked on this within 4-5 days (not including the 2 days that was delayed by the very inconvenient snow storm between Feb 8 & 9 2013). This is a video I made for my mixed media class where I show a runner who is feeling the pain from running up a very large hill, like all us runners feel (>_<). The project was inspired a bit by William Kentridge, whom I learned about in my Mixed Media class.

I tried to put in as much charcoal animation and charcoal backgrounds, but I'm still inexperienced with bringing in photos to flash and a lot of the backgrounds are unfortunetly lacking and are extreamly rushed (the moment I'm importing this vid is just after I finished it).

If I had the time I'd try and find out how to import more photos without the .swf crashing. Luckly I was able to get help in the newgrounds forums and find out how to decrease the quality so I was able to get some forms of charcoal animation in, so thanks to everyone in the forums who were able to give me tips on importing photos!

Again, I apologize if parts of the video are lacking in the background and if the animation is limited (since I mostly used graphics for the animation), but I hope you all enjoy what I have!


this was freaking awesome

Something new..
Crappy of the graphics, but you used your drawings and stuff. Keep it up.
