First Day In Animation

Hello! I am unable to attend school today due to illness, but I have what should be a fun assignment for you to work on while I am gone. Our first program we will learn in here is Flash CS3. This is an updated version of Flash that just came out.

I would like you to visit the following websites and watch a variety of flash animation. When you are done watching the animation (spend about 30-35 minutes or so on this) I would like you to tell me what your favorite flash movies were and why you liked them. Please list this information, along with the link to access the animation, in the comments section below. Don't forget to put your name at the beginning so I know you did your work.

Welcome to class! Don't forget to fill in the comment section with your favorite videos. Log in as anonymous and then write your name at the top of your comment.
Mr. Mitchell

I liked strongbad emails on homestarrunner.com . http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail.html

"Dragon" is of course a favorite. As well as "spring cleaning" and "kids' book."

The strongbad animations are interesting because the images are complicated shapes made up of small simple shapes.

I liked the mini-golf one because it was creative and was pretty funny. http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail174.html

I also liked the sloshy one because it had something to do with football

And I liked the pet show one because it had a pretty cool animation.

My favorites would have to be "Trogdor the Burninator" on homestarrunner.com. another favorite of mine would have to be one that my friend showed me on youtube. this one is called "The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny".

Cool things was another good one because it was really random and weird.

I liked the flash animations on both youtube.com and homestarrunner.com for completely different reasons. The ones on youtube.com I thought were much more creative and interesting but had pretty horrible animations. The one's on homestarrunner. com were the exact opposite, they had awesome animations but were a little dull ti watch.

I love the Teen Girl Squad cartoons

Because I think both the humor and the visual style are kind of unique.

This animation was cool because it had stick figure trying to get through a door and it had a lot of action and cool effects.

This animation was different from the first because it had a lot more prespective.

I liked the animation where the little stick figure was the victim of attempted murder by the computer (or the person controlling the computer... whatever), well, anyway it was the one on youtube, and the one that I liked the best (the albinoblacksheep link didn't work, and the strongbad animations are stupid)
