Saints Row Bugs: The Musical

I actually found this on another blog, but Youtube is easier to post. More for the video gamers out there, (and any game designers too). Not to mention that the guy who made this video also wrote, sang and performed this song. He's good!
Viva Xbox 360!

Livin' the High Life

Hello, everyone.
I'm not really too sure what I wanted to talk about, but.....*happy sigh* I don't know about the rest of us, but I am having a ball sleeping in. I mean, I get up at 9:00 am, but for me that's really sleeping in! Wow! Like, this morning, my roommate was at work, and my other roomie was sleeping, so I had a nice bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese, and a big fat mug of Chai tea. Then, I sat in our little 'sitting alcove' where the sun was shining, so it was all nice and warm, with my big cup of tea....^_^
I can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed.
Yeah. That's about it. I mean, I'm on schedule for flash, so I can take a morning to chill out. Right?

Not that bad...

Howdy, folks...
Just a quick little blurb - we just started making our final flash film, and honestly, it's not nearly as bad as I thought. Dare I say I'm even...having fun...? :3
I can't wait to animate, although I'm sure that my general attitude will change once we start.
I guess we'll see what happens...! ^_^
Take care,

The End of a LOOOONNNGGG Journey

Hello, everyone.
Goodness...I haven't been posting as often as I'd like, but I've been very busy, you see....


Weeeeee!! I'm so happy! Honestly, it's a little anti-climactic, but I'm still very excited!!
Of course, we hit the ground running this weekend - yay Flash 8....:P I'm a little worried, but hey - crash courses are a good way to learn, right? It's not like we knew what we were doing when we were doing our classical film...^_^;;;
Well, I'm off to make a nice shiny Quicktime....see you around!

Adventure Time

Adventure Time
Created by Pendleton Ward
A Random! Cartoons short for Nickelodeon

I found this cartoon on Cartoon Brew, another great animation blog site. This is the sweetest animated short I've seen in a long time!
What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME!!

It's been a while

Hello, my dears.'s been a while, huh? We're on our last couple of days of Final Film. The deadline is looming, and it's a scary feeling. I mean, hell, not counting my chickens, but I'm almost done, and I'm still freaking out!
But, everyone has been working so hard...I can't say how proud I am of everyone.
I unfortunatly don't have a lot to say....except maybe keep warm. *_* We just got a massive dump of snow, and now it's all frozen over. It's pretty crazy.
Well, I think I'm gonna go home and grab some tea....
Lastly, enjoy the video I just threw on.
Adventure Time!!!

30 Shorts for 30 Days

Hello, everyone.
First off, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas/Channukah, and all the best to you in 2007.
To the hard-working animators in my class - home stretch, guys! This is our LAST TERM!! Holy crap! *_*
Now, while looking for a good Flash tutorial (that program is fucking IMPOSSIBLE to understand!!), I revisited a wonderful flash site - Bitey Castle. He used to have great tutorials....I wonder where they went.... :(
Anyways, apparently he started his own little animation marathon titled '30 Shorts for 30 Days.' Each flash short ranges from 5-30 seconds, and is literally about anything and everything. This man is probably the greatest flash animator I've seen yet, so this, along with the award-winning Bitey of Brackenwood series, is definatly worth a look.
All the best in the new year!
PS - 'Stroll' is my personal favourite. :D
