Time out for fun stuff


The above video is one I made. It was just finished today. After taking well over a week to accomplish, the end result is all of four minutes long. It was quite a project, especially considering I've never had training in animation. Like most everything I do, I've had to teach myself every step of the way. From learning how to use available animation software to finding audio programs to doing the artwork, it's all been a heck of a learning curve. And of course nothing comes easy, does it.

This is my best video to date, in my humble opinion. It's certainly the most complicated one I've made. Getting the hang of lip syncing FISH is a bear, but I'm getting there. It's not perfect but what do you want for free? It should still amuse, which is the whole point.

This is what I do when I need a break. I hope you'll enjoy a four minute break of your own to watch it, and I really hope you like it. Comments and feedback are very welcome. Oh and by the way, it's very seasonal too. Just in time for Christmas. Santa gets eaten by a shark, and that's always nice. Yes?

  2. Chris,

    Thank you! I'm glad somebody else liked it besides me. You're hired.
    Don't go anywhere, there'll be more of those in the future. It may just come down to me and you buddy, so I'm counting on you. ;)
    Seriously, thanks for the thumbs up. I do appreciate it.

    Great Animation, very touching, especially for us old enough to remember the tune.

    Have a great Thanksgiving,
