Animation: Watch Flash Movies!

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 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.

I really liked the background "motion" at :30, which has a striking effect by only switching back and forth between two or three frames.

Like the other videos we watched in class, this video is another animator vs animation. I like how detailed this video is, and its also very long, at about 9 minutes.

I enjoyed the simplicity of dialogue in this short as well as the small number of subjects that were involved.

This video is a compilation of 24 flash shorts. I like this video because it shows a wide variety of the different things you can create in flash.

cool graphic, look very nice, sound effects fit the story, and the character is chibi "short person is japanese" "funny".
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9YJFkUMiyc
hmm the character is very well draw, music is ok. but I like the color effects most; very simple but it's fresh.

I don't really get the idea of this, but I love the way they make it in black and white; thus it look classic and the music is just not fit this MV, but I still like it.

There was a part at 1:20 where they did a full rotation of the camera, which had some nice effect

it continued the story of animator vs animation. I really like the weird logic it follows.

I liked the fluid motion of the animation and how well it tied in with the music.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkgK8eUdpAo

The animation, despite having no color besides black and white, shows incredible detail and transitions really well with no hiccups throughout the entire flash.

This continuation of Animator vs. Animation keeps with the overall theme but provides even more to keep you engaged.

What caught my attention in this video was how the music and the action of the video matched.

It's simple and easy to understand, even though it doesn't have any sound.

I liked the way this video just skips around to completely different ideas, and it is interestingly put together.

The mastermind series has been a favorite of mine for a while. This one is probably the only one I could post that'd be ok for school.

Cyanide and happiness make some great shorts. For some reason I always liked the expressions.

3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbo8SNTNsQQ&feature=related

Sexualobster's humor is very far fetched but his animation technique is pretty great. His style is fairly polished (at least in his recent stuff) and it makes for some pretty good entertainment.



Other stuff to check out @ home due to content:

Tankmen
The Awesome Series
Leo and Satan

newgrounds.com these has some other great stuff.

I think this video has a good message, and the animation portrays it cleverly

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DhXcWZ85C8

I like that this person made their own version of a music video, and the animation seems to fit the song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ptk3EuJlEc8&feature=related

The person that made this video says that it is their first animation, and considering that, I think it is very good.
