Here’s my entry for the Bad Dream Animation Jam! (links to the sounds I used will be below! Under the description and me rambling)
“Berry Bad Day” is the culmination of about a week of planning and sketching things out, and a week of animating (with a week of E3 inbetween killing any progress, because Video Games). It is the story of a young dude (unnamed as of right now) who is trapped in a neverending nightmare with the thing he fears most: Raspberries.
I’ve never been much of an animator, but I absolutely loved playing around with Flash in college and trying to animate stick figures doing random junk. I’ve been wanting to animate more, so I figured this contest would be perfect for finally getting into it.
Personally, I’m really proud of how this came out. It may not be the most beautifully animated piece to ever exist or have the greatest story, but it makes me laugh and I love it! I hope you guys do too!
(Also, shout-outs to Flash for crashing about 27 times)
All Music (outside of “Morning Mood” as mentioned above) was done by me in Logic Pro 9!
All animation, art, and sound mixing was also done by me In Adobe Flash CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6, Adobe Premiere CS6, and Audacity!
Special Thanks to my one of my Best Friends (who I call Bro), Eric, aka King of the Eds (Kingofeds123 on twitch) for letting me yell into his mic for the scream part of this, and a few other voice lines! Without his help, the main character would be screamless, so if you’re reading this, I thank you bro!
Also, thanks to Zack and Alyssa for letting me spam them with progress updates whenever I took breaks!
