Oh, so this is where those short flash thingies came from--

Hello guys! This is my group's project for our computer subject in school. Goal was to make a short flash animation with a story. (which part of this is short?:iconmingplz: ) Also, please forgive us for the amount of drama and symbolism in this. We're just very emotional people no not really but heeeeeyyy everything means something. ;v;

OH LOOK A REPLAY BUTTON//shot

The group is composed of 4 members, and yes I'm the only one with the real username here. :XD: I can't think of any good aliases for my girls so please excuse me. I was in charge of the animation and the movie itself. Ai took care of the introduction, Elai made the moral lesson, and Korin did the credits. (We can't show our names and faces because you'd be blinded by our beauty; we're just being considerate. That's where the drastic covering of pictures in the credits is for.) 2D manga style animation pssshhh
The IV Amethyst in the beginning is my class' name, okai--

This was in progress for almost 7 months and even though it's our first time handling flash we're very happy with how it turned out. We hope you do, too. Please enjoy!

AND NO. THAT'S NOT KUURO OKAY IT JUST HAPPENS THAT THE PROTAGONIST HAS THE SAME HAIR COLOR WITH MY BABBU (only Kuuro's is darker :'D).

awesome animation xD im making an animation for my school project which actually is due to tomorrow :D but mine is not that good since im not the best at drawing xD but i need your opinion on something. do you think its best to add black screens with text inbetween the scenes instead of doing voices of the people? i feel i can write more and explain more if u do that instead of having voices without their mouths moving and such a little time xD so what do you think is best? :D also i was like whistling the melody of the songs watching this xD it was so nice and peaceful :D

For easier work, better cinematic effects, and better delivery, yes. Adding text or subtitles of the character's thoughts are better than dubbing. :) People understand more when they read compared to when they listen to a character speaking especially if the dubbing is not that clear. It will save time on the animation of their mouths as well. ^_^

I'm glad you enjoyed this and the music used in here, thank you very much for watching! :hug:

thanks for the advice :D think ima go for text but im not sure because there is some parts i want to have an arnold schwartznegger voice for fun xD but that is the last scene but that will probably turn out wrong when the rest of the video is text. also im not affected by copyright stuff since its only for school so that is why i want to use an arnold voice :D

Whoa. That must have taken forever :iconcryforeverplz: 
The journey of the character is so sweet... I was able to get involved with the story on a personal level, and I like the symbolism in the story :D Like how he loses his confidence because his string doesn't have any colour, but after he realises that he can still belong without that trait he starts to open up :) I bet there's more than what I saw but I still think that it's better to have more drama and symbolism than less. 
The animation of the eraser guy shaking his hand is just... //falls over laughing
AND I STARTED SHOUTING AT THE SCREEN WHEN HE GOT THE SCISSORS I JUST WANTED TO SLAP HIM HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP SO EASILY

All your effort and teamwork really paid off though ^^ This was awesome to watch. I loved the story, and your art and how you used and slowly increased the colour palette through the whole movie, until at the end it was everywhere and so pretty *o* I really hope you keep making more short movies, because I love watching them :tighthug:
I was freaking out when I heard the little bit of an Owl City song at the beginning. But anyway ouo

Owl city yesss I was surprised when my friend added it (although I didn't know it was an Owl City song but I love Owl City bad fan)

And yeah everything you said was correct--lots and lots of drama and symbolism there. The moment our teacher said we were going to have a project I immediately thought I wanted it to be filled with symbolism and stuff that made people think or even relate to.
Because chibi shake hands are...well...:iconheplz:
The scissors part was my favorite part to draw. But I can't draw scissors.:iconmingplz: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! ;v; :hug:

Shh it's okay, I found it XD And hooray for liking Owl City! :dummy: Although I'm going crazy waiting for a new album //sobs

Symbolism is a really simple and effective way to add depth to a story. Stories are supposed to convey messages, I think, especially short ones ^^ So you made a good call :meow:

Exactly. I could watch them forever :iconheplz:
Ironically XD I liked the end the most :la: But you're welcome :iconbrohugplz:
