Well...sort of.

There's still a lot of tweaking that needs to be done, but I'll save that for a later time. I also need to go on an epic quest to find proper background music for this short. Let the springtime adventure begin!

I'm going on my third day without a proper night's sleep, so bear with me if I start to ramble. Or pass out. I'm actually trying really hard not to nod off now, but I'm feeling a little dizzy and my hands feel all floaty. That's not very normal is it?

Anyway, I'm supposed to be writing about my process. There's not much to it, though. Think of an epic scheme. Think of a bajillion ways to make it ridiculously complicated. Then work like a dog for the next few months and cry a little inside at 3am when you realize the film isn't going to be completed exactly how you imagine. Call parents. Complain to friends. Then suck it up and animate the rest of that shiz the night before it's due and make excuses the next day for a lack of sound.

That's about it. I'm super tired. I still need to waste twenty dollars at Kinkos for a Creative Writing portfolio that I'll never see or use again. I want to watch Pocahantas so that I can give it back to Sean, finally.

Err...that's about it. This class was tons of fun. I'm trying to upload the video on youtube so everyone can watch it in better quality...but that's taking awhile.

How long do videos take to load anyway!?

Gah, I give up on making the youtube upload. Blogger compresses like woah, so I'm sorry for the terrible quality. If I can ever manage to upload a nicer quality, you all will be the first to know.

Any good ideas for sound? I was thinking something adorable. With piano and chocolate. Yum.



    AND EAT.


    (I almost typed 'liver')

    You and Alex had my favorite pieces. Go hard work!

  2. Your animation was SO adorable. I loved the exasperated slump of the groom at the end. Priceless.

  3. Hey! I really liked the ways your looked. The color choices you made for the cake were awesome, and I think the hand-drawn instead of the puppets worked really well!

  4. Terrifying mouth eating.
    I liked the little dipped strawberries.

  5. This is so adorable! <3 I love how the whole concept is so... "Chrystin" XD

  6. omg~~~~~ chrystin, you are amazing!
    Your hard work paid off!
    The expressions, and gestures are so lovely and animated! love the part where he tries to lick his lips, and at the end of course, where she giggles, and he slumps. xD <3
    mucho kudos!

  7. Oh my goodness, this is so great.
    You are so talented. I love the expressions and the body language, You nailed it all.
    I could just watch this over and over. XD

  8. GYAAAAH SO CUUUTE!!!!! haha! hm, music... for some reason I'm thinking of the cute walking music from a bug's life.... ^^;;;
    i'm SO glad you didn't do puppets, it wouldn't have compared! i love it when she kind of guiltily licks the chocolate off her lip... not sure i like how her eyes go all dotty, but still cute :)

  9. XD I love it Yuki! How adorable. I think it's so funny how right after she licks her lips, he licks his and that seems to be when the realization hits, "OMG, that B-Z ate my MOUTH!"

    As for music... hm.. I will think on that and get back to you as soon as I come up with something. For now, get some sleep, you deserve it. <3

  10. THIS.
    If this is what you're pulling out now, I can't wait to see what you do in senior.
