Wow, that's great! As long as he's having fun and getting to work (at least some of the time) in the field he loves, that's wonderful! Now that he's broken into the field, it shouldn't be hard for him to get to where he wants to be.

My first decent animation after college! I made it in 2005 and it placed in the top ten for Nickelodeon's animation festival! It's also shown in various other film festivals around the world. A lot of fuss over some silly little monsters! I had a lot of fun with it. Hope you enjoy it!

That was amazing in all aspects. Awesome narrative especially, story is everything and you did everything right to enhance the storyline, the audio, the animation, really superb. Great job. Has it been in any animation festivals yet? should be for sure.

Wow, thanks so much!  I had a lot of fun with this project, and I hope it shows.  ^___^

Yeah!  It's been in a few festivals, actually--it placed in the Top Ten Best Animations in Nickelodeon's Nextoons Animation Festival back in 2005, and was aired on their Nicktoons channel (Nick doesn't do those fests anymore, unfortunately), then it screened at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in Ontario in 2006, Anima Mundi in Brazil in 2007, and Animation Block Party in NYC (I forget the year).  I got a free trip to Canada out of it! ;p I'd submit it to more festivals, but most don't accept entries older than a couple years.

Wow, cool!  Thanks for the link!  I'm really digging your stuff so far--I'll have fun watching all of these! :la:

Yeah, I know when I first started on dA, they require animators to submit a video for approval, then once they confirm you're an animator they give you permission to post videos on here.  I think they set that up to prevent dA turning into YouTube, with people just posting random videos.  They want to make sure it's artistic.

That is so cool. It's a great piece, and again story is everything! I am just getting back into animation after about 15 years. I like doing pencil stuff. Bill Plimpton is one of my favorites, well his early stuff at least. I bought an animation desk, with disc and backlight. I also set up my camcorder to shoot drawings and then I bring then into power director to animate. I want to get digicell flipbook, I think that is good software for what I plan on doing.
Reply
:iconmurderousautomaton:
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015
Nice!  That sounds like a great set up!  And I've heard Flipbook is a really good program.  I might get that, too, but I just spent a bunch of money on Adobe software, so I'll probably have to save for a while. :D I definitely want to get back into animating, too, but my process is too time-consuming.  I'm hoping some of these newer programs (and maybe a better tablet) will streamline the process.  I do like working in pencil, though, but then the scanning time gets kinda crazy.  I suppose I could look into a batch scanner...

Yeah, Bill Plimpton is great!  I remember back in the early 90's, his work was everywhere on TV!  I think he recently did a Simpsons couch gag intro, too, which was really cool.

:iconscotcampbell:
scotcampbell Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015  Professional Artist
Yeah a bulk scanner would be cool, however that works.
I haven't been doing animation lately, I am making alot
of window painting how to videos, that's what I do for
a living.
Reply
:iconmurderousautomaton:
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015
Yeah, we'll see--I suppose I'd be better off spending money on a better tablet and animation software than a batch scanner, since that's where the industry's going.  Unless I can get a good deal, of course. :D

Oh, cool!  Are those videos on your YouTube channel, too?  That sounds really interesting!

Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun making it. ^___^

My animation technique is actually really out of date, but I draw them by hand, scan them, darken the lines in Photoshop, then export them to Macromedia Director, where I organize them like video game sprites. From there I export the frames as Quicktime movies, and edit it all in Premiere. I'm actually not sure what software people use nowadays for cartoons, but I'm sure it's much more streamlined than mine. :XD:
