What's this? A movie with no moral you can possibly extrapolate? From ME??

Yep, there's not a whole lot to this animation, as it turns out. The theme we were given for this round of NATA was "your own reflection." Rather than doing something that reflected my own personality (which I guess would be kind of what I did last round, although exaggerated immensely for the sake of the story) I decided to go the opposite direction and do something silly with little meaning. So then this thing happened.

Making things that try to be funny is definitely out of my comfort zone and I'm not especially good at it. I like how this movie turned out visually, but that alone can't carry a movie for long. I don't dislike this animation, but I'm not particularly fond of it either. But hey, it's done, and my exams are done finally, so now I can enjoy Canada Day (July 1st, for you non-Canadians) without any other obligations!

Lastly, I should mention that the music is from Josh Woodward. I first heard of him because one of his songs came with a release of Ubuntu a few years ago, and I recently discovered that his music is also available for free instrumentally as well (nothing against his voice, but instrumental music makes for better soundtracks generally.) His website is joshwoodward.com, if you're interested.

Note for the icon mods: Sorry about the lack of icon again. I anticipated this and left the icon I wanted on the second frame of the flash file in case that helps you guys.

nice animation, and there is a moral i just havent figured it out yet lol

meh. moral is to mainstream. i like it. i wonder if theres any technique that u used to help animating this particular style much easier... good job nonetheless... good choice of music. keep it up!

Pahgawk responds:

Basically, I drew everything with the pencil tool, and once it was all coloured, I enabled "select multiple frames", selected everything, and then disabled the line colour in the colour panel to remove all the lines.

Somebody is trippin' balls.

Good animation.

It's a good animation all in all, but I'd like to request the name of the song

Pahgawk responds:

It's in the credits: "Let It In" by Josh Woodward

I thought the animation was very good, the music was also very good, and it had a nice story to it. A well earned 4 stars from me.
