EUROPE! In three minutes

Post by Karpi » Sat Mar 19, 2005 9:41 am

Hi Folks!

My first try in Moho (and Flash) and it was an awful lot of work. "EUROPE! In three minutes" is my application to a swiss film school.
It's cracy, absurd, full of KLISCHEES, and shows a wrong, colorful, shiny, extreeem view of europe. The english of my "fairy" is wrong, complicated, and has some kind of japanese (like my own - sorry).

So, just look on the animations... :?

P.S. And yeah, I know I've stolen some ideas from BANZAII.

Hey that was fun! Very entertaining.

I liked the backgrounds a lot.

Good job.

Wow! Thanks for so many nice words. :oops:

Well, my chance to get in that school is about 0%. In all those years, they've never accepted a guy of my age (19). 27 is normal. But its worth a try, I think.

Once again, thanks thanks thanks.

That is very fun and has great timing and pacing. I agree especially with pixelwks about the backgrounds. It was an artistic, effective (and humorous, with Godzilla stomping around) way to convey location.

With this output now, by the time you reach 27 you won't need film school. You already have a great feeling for pacing, detail and style. Once you hit Europe it could do with slightly faster storytelling and some more obvious cliches, French baguette carrying pipe smoking people, cheese rolling pot smoking people with a windmill background in Holland, stuff like that. But that's just nitpicking, great stuff!

This is really great! Seems very similar to the Fairly Oddparents, character-wise. The humor and timing are spot on! A very nice job. The animation was enjoyable to watch.

Thanks!

Well, until now, i didn't even know the "Fairly Oddparents", but yeah, you're right.
My aim were just very functional and "easy to animate" cartoon bodies. In fact, I've copied some (or lot - gmmf) ideas from the "Powerpuff Girls".

And yeah, I've used styles from "Banzaii", "Astro Boy" and those old 40s and 50s american propaganda movies.

Thanks, I've worked nearly 40 days on it. Just the evenings (and at the end the nights too). In my daily life, I should learn for school - I should.
Animation was hard, it mixed my whole day up and made me strange and complicated - but every second of it was an enormous amount of fun.

YIHAAA!

I've just wanted to add that the swiss filmschool took me!
They were especialy fascinated about the Moho-Movie.
So thanks Lost Marble and the community for the product, the tipps, tutorials, etc...
I've wouldn't been able to do this in so less time and besides school without you all.
