Just stuck it up there about 20 minutes ago, so it should be through processing in a couple hours.

Huh. Apparently DA doesn't believe in Widescreen. That's a shame. It's unsquished over at Youtube and Vimeo.



Anyway, The Chronicles of Turghot and Dragam, the fourth year film at Sheridan that I've been hammering at for the past four months or so.

I'm sure all the flash mavericks out there are laughing at me right now for doing this traditionally when you could probably make the same thing on a computer with a couple weeks of effort if you know what you're doing. Here's hoping that homemade hand-drawn pencil wobble gives it some kind of charm to make it all worth it. (though I will admit the anchorman was Flash'd. Just had to motion tween that eyeball)

It's got its issues, but hopefully it's still chuckleworthy in the end. There are definitely things that could be fixed or that I would have done differently if there was more time, but frankly, this has been four solid months of crunch time. I ran myself ragged making this thing, so I've pretty much hit the point where I have to accept that it's time to let go. I finished a three minute traditionally animated film with relatively complicated designs on my own in a timeframe meant for a film less than half that length, and as far as I'm concerned that's something to be proud of.

I take some consolation knowing that in the grand scheme of Academia, there aren't many people who can say that they did their thesis on barbarians and zombies.


Credits are in order here, so I'm giving the biggest thanks I can muster to Aaron Tsang, who wrote a completely amazing score for this thing; the forever awesome Leighanna Frostad and Stephen Robinson because this thing seriously would not have gotten into the computer without them; Steve Bennett, Adam Klassen, Tara Burke, and Justin Salgado for being rocking voice actors; Brock Gallagher for teaching me how to use almost every piece of software it took to put this together; Garrett Hanna for showing me how to not suck at painting; and everyone else who helped me get it together.



ALWAYS REMEMBER

YOU'RE THE BEST AROUND

NOTHING'S GONNA EVER KEEP YOU DOWN

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-05-01
Chronicles of Turghot + Dragam by *Coelasquid Suggested by ~JRHill, *rentabby, *muura and ~Rose-Of-Sharyn "It's a light-hearted tale of barbarians in the big city, but also a testament to great character design, wonderfully expressive animation, and terrific style all around." "Aside from the film being 99.9% traditional, which is astounding and note worthy in its own right, it's charming and very amusing. In a day and age where Flash films dominate, I don't think people appreciate the hard work traditional animation takes." ( Featured by InpuUpUaut )
