I just finished my History project! Creatively made in Anim8or (and Windows Movie Maker for titles, music, and effects)

The Spark Animation of the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the beginning of World War 1

Yeah... but that's how the music was (and to fit the grade it has to be 3-5 minutes)

crap, it looks like the first time I posted didn't post. unless someone deleted it? Anyway, thanks!

If anyone didn't notice, I didn't use a single UV texture (for portability reasons since NO two USB port drives have the same letter!).

Hey guys, so remember when I made this? LOL

Just wanted to let you know, I've been working on remaking this, and now it's DONE! It's scheduled to be uploaded this Saturday!

IT'S UP!



The task of remaking this old project was my semester assignment for Digital Media Projects. Looking back, I was really disappointed at just how terrible this old animation was. I wasn't proud of it at all. So I decided to remake it in Traditional 2D animation, which I'm much better at. I was going for Max Fleischer's style (Betty Boop, Popeye), and portrayed it in a more innocent and humorous fashion. I also made my own original music this time.

When I didn't finish it in time by the end of the semester, I was so burned out, I didn't want to do ANYTHING for two whole months. Recently I got back to work on it, and now it's finally done!

Wow Cori!! I can tell you'vecome REALLY far since then! The music is great at accentuating the story, but the quality of the animation is fantabulous :))

Uniquely humorous take on what was maybe a pretty intense and history-changing story. Great work

Nice vintage animation style!  While the new version is excellent, don't be too hard on yourself regarding the original.  I recall precious few animation projects being completed by anyone around that time, yours was one of the few Anim8or animations I saw that was built to a brief and actually served a real purpose and from memory you were pretty new to Anim8or when it was created.  It's great that you were able to redo this animation and I love the new version, but I also reserve the right to hold the original in pretty high regard too :)

Thanks everyone! Now it's back to Galacticats!

Unfortunately somehow the spaceship I built for the dogs disappeared, so now I have to redo it. Must have gotten lost when I changed computers or something. Oh well, I wanted to change some things anyway.

good to hear - i was looking forward to seeing how that turns out

in my experience, that sort of accident is always annoying at the time (obviously) but the replacement version of whatever got lost usually turns out better than the original - so, silver linings and all that :)
