Leursen in the Library

Ms. Leursen tries to check out a book, but makes a real mess of it.

I was working on something larger, but then realized there was no was I was going to get it done in time so I quickly pulled out this script I wrote back in the day... while working on Genius Cop 2, I believe. Anyway, I tried some new stuff, particularly with lip sync animation. I'm pleased with the result, but it was far too time consuming... I think I'm going to have to find some middle ground.

Runtime: 0:48

Check out these animations if you want to see some more of Ms. Leursen!

This is rather short, but it's still pulled off very nicely. The voice acting is pretty good in this one. Both characters have very distinctive voices, which is always a huge plus.
The graphics are done in a comical style, but it fits very good to the content. The "snakey" Ms. Leursen would've just looked silly in a realistical drawing style.

I think the lip syncing works pretty good here. Sometimes one can notice the mouth still moving for a fraction of a second after the character has stopped talking, but it's not something to lose sleep over. It works good the way it is now.

Last but not least, the flash itself is quite funny. Nothing too new here, but as I've said before: It's pulled off nicely and that's what counts!

Thanks for the review, Review Request Club! I'm glad the entire piece comes together well, despite not containing anything particularly new. That mouth moving a fraction of a second after the character has stopped talking thing is actually something I was doing on purpose (giving the mouth a moment to return to a non-moving position), but you mentioning it is making me reconsider it, since it is not really the way our mouths work when we speak. Food for thought! Thanks again for the review!

lol is the end suppose to be an introduction do a horror movie?

Aqlex responds:

Haha nope, but I can see why one would think that! Ms. Leursen's personality is pretty scary though.
