@00:54It's not my view, I hate the smell of cigarettes and can't be around people when they smoke.
The text and sound (sound version on youtube) are from a clip from the movie Thank you for Smoking. About Nick Naylor, a spokesman for cigarettes. Very good and funny movie. The audio clip I used was from a scene where he was at his son's school for caareer day. Where he told the children he talked on behalf of cigarettes, then shamelessly proceeded to try and convince a class full of school children to try smoking.
@00:55Naw, I just animated it, I'm not that good with words. The text is from the movie Thank you for smoking. A very awesome movie. (And I'm sure the book is even better, though I've never read it). XD
@00:55After effects is way better for animating than flash. There is so much more you can do with it, and it is way better at tweening. Though I still go back to flash, Cause flash has less animating features so it has less you need to learn to animate in it. XD
But like how you were making use of movie clips for your animation of Zuko. Aftereffects allows you to parent movie clips (or comps as after efects calls it). So you can attach the hand to the arm, and when you move the arm the hand moves with it, but you can still move the hand separate of the arm. Etc. And you can tween things in 3d space, not just 2d space. fun stuff.
@00:55cool man! Didn't know you could do all that in AE! I knew there's a way to parent body parts in flash like that, but it's way complicated. I know a few friends who did moving type so I'll get em to teach me, hehe, one of em owes me for helping her with maya XD
@00:55Really interesting work. I couldn't hear any audio but it was great anyway. I was suprised that I could keep up with what was being said with it going so fast. But I did...and thats more credit to you.
OOooOOoooo I've never commented on a video here before. How exciting.
I already told you, but I think this has got to be one of the coolest videos in existence. I LOVE what you've done with all the wording and the fast-paced movement of the words... I've never been so excited to SEE WORDS. I wish my textbooks were presented like this. (I'm jealous cause your sole textbook kinda IS). Yellow and black ftw. I love that combo. ^^ Very, very well done!!!!
Yes, I didn't know dA had film but apprently they added it at the end of septermeber. And you had to email them to be considered for posting in the film section. So luckily my work was good enough to be accepted. XD
