i know the feeling XD ive just finished my first year at university and i look back at the animations i did at the start of the year and they look awful compared to the ones i have just finished but at least we are able to look back and criticise our work
@02:31A very charming film with simple but very well executed idea behind it. Great work The animation could have been pushed abit further but I found myself not really caring as the idea of the film carried it so well. The part with the sheep especially moved me

@02:48A very fluid and well done animation ! (the only moment that made me tick is when the small chara is thrown into the air : when there are no clouds, you can't say if he's actually moving). But otherwise, a truly well animated story. (I love the sheeps). Can I ask what software you used for the animation ? It looks like flash, but I don't have much experience with that so I don't know. Thank you !
@02:48Yah, except that it's the very basics that I don't get... but I think I'll get to practice a little this year at school ^^ It looks like such a useful tool for animation, I can't wait to be able to tinkle with it !
And I had a question : I've been trying for the last four days to get approval for posting videos, but nothing works (no one answers). Can you tell me how long it took you to get your approval ? thanx
@02:48I love traditional animation, I can still do that but it's no something I've done for a long while, I don't have such equipment at home.
So I completely relate to your situation.
I finished studying in 2009, I work a job now.
Hehe yes, Flash is a great platform but you have to be careful to not lose your own touch. Too many teens make flash animations look crap as I'm sure you've seen. However as with any form of medium it's always about how you use your tools. If you're prepared to do something different you can always achieve amazing things, no matter what you use.
Yes I'm looking forward to seeing anything you produce!
