And then came 2011

This is a quick web card for the New Year's eve. Party time! :party

Hope you like it :)

Everything has a first time

When I finally got hands on my own computer around 4 years ago, I hardly knew even how to change my wallpaper! But I couldn't help starting to mess with Adobe Flash, this magnum opus piece of software. Well, lets just say it had its side effects ;)

Aaand here comes.. The Mission, which is the first flash animation movie I ever made! Yay! I swear it wasn't meant to be a funny cartoon, but never mind, you won't believe anyway. Just see how naïve and superficial it is. Without much intro, take a look at the 4 years old crazy weird stuff. I assume no guarantee if it makes you go mad and insane. And I hope this doesn't prevent you from coming back to my blog ever again ;)

Further Thoughts
This movie was made out of the sudden motivation I had after I figured out how to add music in a flash movie(back then).
It was amusing to go through this noob work of mine. Its source is implemented in a way I'd straightaway call stupid at present.
I remember that I drew the dialogues with hand just because I didn't know then that I could actually type in the text. Imagine that!
Also, all of the movie is done frame by frame, without any automatic transitions and it surprises me now that how much patience I had then.
I guess you would have noticed the really weird play and pause(which appears as a stop) buttons. Those were added when I learned for the first time how to make buttons.
And you may also notice that there's a a vague sync in the animation and the background music, which I can't remember now was intentional or accidental!

Okay now, which is your favorite scene in The Mission? My personal favorite is where the guy swings the axe from his one hand to the other :P
