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 three 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.



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.

My favourite animations were http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/video/the-man-who-could-sit-anywhere The Man Who Could Sit Anywhere, because it was so funny and I liked the music; http://www.homestarrunner.com/crystal.html Crystal Fortress because I love They Might Be Giants and The Cheat has always had such fantastic animation; and http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/animator Animator vs Animation, because the storyline was just so interesting and intense, and besides, the animation must have taken forever!

My favorite animations were

The story line was good and it was very funny
and the artistic work was good also.

i like #1,2, and 3 also but #2 and 3 were the best.

I liked this one to because the series wasnt made only by the game but by an animation software
and im pretty sure its Maya maybe? But its only used in season 9.

My favorite animations were...

Ghost fight ~ For the amazing affects and vivid colors along with the fact that the original video was a game that you could control fully, as well as the music that coupled so well with the video.

Tarboy ~ For the awesome animation, sound track and story line, also the pure fact that it is 6 minutes long! That must have taken ages.

Minecraft Parody ~ Because I ama huge fan of minecraft and this animation was done quite well with all of the sounds very well synced, over all just a solid animation with a typical scene from the game.

_Things I like about it were that it was a short film with and interesting plot line and also the very music blend with the animation made it specially cool to watch
_To me it looked like it was made frame by frame
_It was also really fun to watch especially with all the color changes and easy on the eye flash
_There were some very amazing detail and animation where I could barely tell the frames

_This look very original and fun to watch something fight against the very program we are probably going to be using
_There was creativity and very interesting drawings
_I would say that this was a combination of frame by frame and the computer animation

_While short and simple, what I like about this animation are the tricks in which to animate a motorcycle
_To me it looked to be made by a frame by frame animation
_While no story plot in this bit of animation it was fun to watch

My favorite animations on the youtube link were Tarboy, because of the polished look of the animation, along with the good voice over work, and animator vs animation, I liked how the animator made a backdrop that looked just like the Flash dashboard. I also spent some time last night looking at some of the animations on albino black sheep, and i liked the Professor Brothers on their flash page. The comedy was mostly crude and aimed towards adults, but i liked the unpolished look of the frames, as well as the lack of frame by frame smooth animating, instead pairing voice overs with still frames that shifted frequently to convey that it was still an animation.

The Sound Effects were nice, The animation was fluent and the storyline was creative.

The Sound and Animation were both really good. And it was funny. Apparently it was a contest to make a dorito's commercial.

The sound and animation was really good and It was really gunny.

My First Flash animation, I liked it because the transitions were really smooth and it had a good storyline.

I enjoy the senseless humor in these stick videos. Pretty original stick videos every simple idea with stick running off a cliff graphics are very simple.


The story is hilarious the graphics are alright. The sounds and voices are well done.


The graphics were well done and even without the sound I could understand what was going on. The sounds were good they were realistic.

My favorites were...

1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DhXcWZ85C8 - I really enjoyed this video because one, I really love this song, "Creep" by Radiohead and the animation itself was interesting. The drawings weren't beautiful, but more like loose sketches, which I can relate to, being s terrible artist.. The song playing is full of melancholy and I believe the animation in the background fit it perfectly.
