First Animation Assignment

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.
Did you like the storyline? Animation style? Sound effects? Music?
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. Please use headphones.

-I liked this flash animation because he could make anything that happened in it as random as he wanted. Like how he made the one stick figure appear out of nowhere and was able to beat all the other stick figures.

- In this flash i enjoyed how they made the characters however they wanted. For example they all looked like cheese to me but he could put a clown mask on them and all different kind of things and he didn't care if it made sense.

One of my favorite videos is pistols for pandas because it is really random and unpredictable which makes it funny. I wasn't able to listen to it because I don't have headphones, but the animation was very creative and the theme is something you would never think of. I think whoever made the video was very creative for coming up with pistols for pandas.

I also thought this one was very creative and funny because of the concept of the jello pool and people getting stuck in it was really funny. My favorite part would be when the lifeguard went to save the guy and he bounced into space because he was so fat. The animation was done very well and I liked the effects and the creativity.

1.) Bad Apple
Original:

Stop Motion Version:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=240Vq6tIxio

The first video that I've linked above, is my all time favorite. The incorporation of stop motion is amazing. The original video is complete shadow art, which is also listed above. Frankly, the entire video looks completely real to me, like someone on a green screen.
I love this video for the use of shadow art, and how everything fits perfectly with the song.

2.) Eevee Party:
Video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HMchVSSzns

I've known about this video for a long time, and even when I grew out of my Pokemon phase, I still love seeing this video over and over again. The colors are wonderful, and the theme is cute!

3.) Everybody Jam!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcmqnOZYLWQ

What's not to love? Its Scatman John. : D

4.)

Even though the animations aren't detailed as much as the videos above, this video has comedy in it, which we all need once in a while.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3Jhikj-djo&feature=related -- This is my favorite one that I searched on youtube because I like how the music fits in really well with the animation. I also like how simple, yet funny the concept and animation is.

I started surfing youtube and everything was kind of boring until i got to the stick-figure animation.
One that I really liked was the xiao xiao series.
-I liked how they animated the action
-The slow motion and 3D scenes, and the motion blurs were really cool.

I liked this series because it had neat style to it. There was a-lot of... I guess action to it. More or less fighting. It's something I would do. Anime parts are annoying... But I can get past it.

I like the style of animation used in this video because there is a lot of detail and I like how it grows as the song progresses.

This is a flash animation (Blockhead) series, which is why this is episode 8. I like Blockhead, because it is really random and funny. The animation is smooth, and the characters are fun. I think it shows you the power of flash and how it can be used to make a good video.

-This is one of my favorite animations because it has a good storyline, is easy to follow, and manages to have a good variety of jokes without relying on "lol the stick figure dies a lot."

*http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyqeKEXrrfI
-I also like this one even though it's a bit more violent because it was well animate. Although the ending was a bit excessive, it was still funny.

I liked the action, and it was really funny, because it was so incredibly stupid. Plus, The animation itself was pretty good, and the facial expressions are very funny at times.

1. I enjoyed this first one because I am a fan of the Counter Strike game, and it was pretty funny.

2. I also Liked this one because Im a fan of both Pokemon and Left 4 Dead and they incorporate both, in an old school Pokemon style.

This was my favorite flash animation i watched today mainly because i like how they use non animated objects but also put them in an animated setting. I think they also did a really good job of not making anything look really pixely like some animations I have seen.

One of my favorite movies is a stick fight animation. I think it would just be the most fun to make one because you can have full control over what happens.

One of the better videos I watched today was asdfmovie2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKB4h9gvmm0) on YouTube, because it had basically no storyline, just random jokes one after another. The animation was superior, though most of the video doesn't have any logic to it.

The best video was the Flash Animation Fight (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMBTF3xxolM) on YouTube. The music (Rammstein) fights well, and the animation is really good, with lots of explosions.

I liked this short the best. I thought it was cleverly done and had a true idea from beginning to end of what's happening. I liked the story for sure, but I liked that though it was violent, it had no blood. I didn't have headphones so I couldn't comment on the sound, but the concept was cute and execution impeccable.

I liked on how the person used an everyday computer (with exceptions) in a flash animation, such as having the paint icon fighting the MSN and AIM icons.

-I liked this flash animation because it looked very good. The song that they used was also a good song. The animations looked like the type of quality that you would see in a tv show. The animation style is similar to the boondocks. The animation goes along with the song but i didn't have headphones so i couldn't really listen to it.

Title: Cooking Sama

This is my favorite video so far.I love the sense of comedy in this video. The animation is also very simple, but it's very good. Tad bit of warning, there is a few seconds where there is some sexual hint, but overall, I personally think it's PG.

I liked this flash animation because this person's style is very nice, and this animation had a good touch of humor.

Godd anime/animation with a hint of stop-motion. Fun to watch, and it was based off a book of the same name.
