Loop JamAnimators had two weeks to create a (minimum 15 second) looping animation.
SUMMER ANIMATION JAM
Round 1: LOOP
Frames per Second: 24
Total Frames: 376
Loop Time: 15.6 seconds
I wasn't exactly inspired to make this but I wanted to practice drawing doves and city skylines. The latter I feel like I didn't learn too much about. If I had knowledge on 3d animation this could have been very different, but alas. I animated my backgrounds in photoshop, which took a bit long to do, even though I used a very crude brush(which was a failed experiment). I would really like to do more inbetweens, especially where the camera moves to the bus stop. I've become sick though and I should really be sleeping instead of doing work right now. Anyway, actionscript gave me a bit of trouble with the looping music. Originally I was going to lower the speed of the song but it just didn't sound right to me in the end. With the original tempo, the animation would have been under 15 seconds so I had to come up with some solution. I really wanted to use this song in particular because it hints at an underlying backstory.
Looking back now, I think I could have done a whole lot more, frame-by-frame wise. I assume the still shots will drastically affect my score in the long run, oh well. Anyway, enough of this boring bullshit. Did I mention I've been sick for the last 2 days? I'm going back to bed. Tragic )':
