I've been listening to this song a lot, and for some reason I thought this clock kaleidoscope would go along with it.
The Clock Crew is a great place for beginning flash animators to develop their skills and style and have fun too! It has helped me a lot.
These kaleidoscope things aren't as easy to make as you think.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

nice work with the caliedoscope effect at the start, but it made me dizzy as hell, you should stop that, lol.

srsly tho.

make it a tad slower, it will be just as cool, and with less epilepsy accidents, and less puking.
i liked the subliminal message at the end and the red army of UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU's
nice flash overall, but needs to tone down the seizures man.

The fruit kaleidoscope animation was cute. The subliminal message, however, was not. Where are the sources for the music used? Was it OC? I see mention of a "Clock Crew", but I have no understanding as to why this is relevant to the clip I just watched.

After a quick Google search, I realize it is a collection of animators whose roots stemmed from crappy beginnings with a theme circling around fruit with clocks plastered onto their "faces" (if fruit can have faces). If you are attempting to be associated with these animators and their current skill in animating, you have a long way to go.

I gave no stars because the animation, in full, did not seem like a finished project (given the shot of the Times New Roman letter "u" being repeated across the screen at the end of the clip). However, don't stop practicing! Important points to remember are the shading and detail of the fruit, as well as the synchronization of the music and animation speed. (If you were going for a simplistic art style, an important thing to emphasize is the silhouette and shape of the fruit rather than details and shading.) Perhaps a narrative or more central theme other than "Join the Clock Crew" would have benefited the short better.

The music used is "Shake Weight" by Captain Murphy, Flying Lotus's rap alter-ego.
Thank you for your advice! I am actually a member of the Clock Crew. I agree that this doesn't look like a finished project, and that is because I had some time constraints. I was supposed to make one flash movie every day this month, plus I have college to deal with, so quality can suffer with some of these. Each day has a theme, and this was supposed to be for yesterday, when it was "recruitment day", hence the theme. The art style here is supposed to be simplistic, but I'll keep your advice in mind when I want to do something a little more involved.
