Tumblr is For the Birds

Before you play the video, here’s a little background…

So I was working late one night in the SVA Cintiq Lab early last year, animating a few shots near the end of my thesis film of the characters going over these hills in the cart. Made it kinda bouncy n’ fun, because I thought it looked good…

Then, when I finished the shots and played them in order, a little voice in my head was telling me that there was something subconsciously going on in this shot. It wasn’t that I thought something was wrong with it, but something was bothering me about it… I asked myself, "Why do I feel this way watching this? Why does this bother me?". Then I realized what it was… 

I got the a clip off of Youtube, ripped the audio, put it in the .FLA file, lined it up and watched… then I hung my head down in shame over what I did… 

I subconsciously channeled the opening of The Magic School Bus into my thesis. The scene of the bus going down the street, driving over the horizon and dropping down with a slight stretch… I HAVEN’T WATCHED THE SHOW IN TEN YEARS, WHY WOULD I THINK THAT!?

And that’s the story.
