Sick Penguins!

I created this short piece about a month ago.  My friend Sam Greenwood provided the perfectly matched sound.  Sam is a great sound designer and musician, extremely passionate about his work and collaborator.

Penguin 2

This is an animation test in Flash of my penguin character turning from left to right and then back again.  I am really quite happy animating in Flash now.  I have just about gotten over my hatred for vector based imagery.  Though I prefer to draw on a light box Flash does have its advantages.  I would say using the program has increased my work out put by about a third.  Mainly due to the fact that I am not having to scan my drawn images in and then color them in Photoshop, oh and also cut out each drawing to create the effect of a cell.
So I have come to the conclusion that my next film is going to be created in Flash.  I never thought I would say those words.  I guess I am having to bite the bullet for a few reasons.  The first is, I think, I am struggling to get my foot in the door with in the animation industry because 2D animation is so Flash orientated now.   The second and again I don't like to admit it, I kinda enjoy using Flash now.
So here we go! Watch this space.
