Fun with Animations!

Ok, so a friend on Myspace made this pretty funny animation on this site called xtranormal.com and I just had to give it a try!

It's actually fairly easy to use. It gives you all the steps, to choose your characters, backdrop, sounds and such. And, then you just write the script, add in your camera angles, and poses, or facial expressions - hit ACTION and then they set up like a movie! lol It's really cool!! So i thought i would share it all with you, my creative friends!

So this is my first attempt - i just used a joke i knew, and put in a "talk show" type setting... see what you think!

And, then I did this one earlier - thought it was kind of funny! The only hard thing about this site is you can't really convey inflections! So you kind of have to imagine. But, it's great for dry humor! lol



So anyway, let me know what you all think! Or, if you play around with it and create one let me know or link it here and i'll post it on my blog! :)
