Still Not Listening...


video
This is my major project for my web animation class, we had to take audio from the 11 Second Club and animate to it in flash. I created the barbarian character before this month's contest started, and once I heard the audio, I knew I had a good fit! I just needed a second character, and a smaller wizard was a great counter to the big, strong barbarian.

It's great too, because an educated wizard never uses his magic unless he absolutely needs to. Can you imagine if Gandalf was pulling some Balrog-esque shit in the Shire? Hobbit corpses, hobbit corpses everywhere. So we see as the video progresses that the wizard is getting frustrated beyond belief because he isn't getting the attention he is trying to command. He's a small guy, and the smaller guys don't usually get to command attention, they have to go the extra mile, sometimes they have to do something BIG.

Magic is pretty big...
