Well it's not really FF related at all but... I made this Flash animation for an assignment at college, and I'm really proud of it, it's the best (and longest) thing I've done on Flash before. :D

It's about a campervan called Cid who is bored of driving around, then he gets this special petrol and suddenly finds something strange happens that changes his life forever.....

If anyone's interested, here's a link (it's about 100kb):

And if there's any Flash experts around tell me what I can improve or what looks bad, etc :p

Thanks! :)

Wow, that's very impressive and cute! The campervan is very styley too :D I'm pleased to see that you called it "petrol station" instead of gas station ;) Good work!

Yeah that's what we call them here ^^;

Thanks for your comment and to blue_midget192 and RikkuYuna :p Yeah a little parody thing of Red Bull there ^_^

I love Flash it's fun and fairly easy to learn the basics. I hope to go on to bigger and better things :D

I'm sure you could do really good things. :) The graphics were very nice. Maybe one day you could be on newgrounds.com. And what do you use for flash? I really wanna make flashes. :)

I actually did submit it to Newgrounds - pretty brave being my first movie and all, but it has some okay reviews considering, this one was nice:

"This Stands Out December 1, 2003
Reviewed by: Reafer Overall rating: 10
I really liked this vid, its not violent, and there is no sick humor like in most vids on newgrounds, it was deffinetly orignal, reminded me of one of those old childhood storied from when i was a kid or somethin, deffinetly a keeper, im adding that to my favs, excelent work"

But look at this one:

"HOW THE ****? December 1, 2003
Reviewed by: RsRiddick Overall rating: 0
NOW HOW THE **** DOSE THIS HAVE A 2.17 SCORE, I BLAMMED IT! IT WAS GAY AND POINTLESS AND A RIP OFF OF RED BULL! WHAT LOSERS VOTED 5 ON THIS?
Graphics: 0 Sound: 0 Interactivity: 0 Style: 0 Violence: 0 Humor: 0 "


It makes me curious why some people feel the need to be so rude, but good with the bad and all, and compared to the quality (and subject matters) of the movies at Newgrounds I guess it was a bit of a gamble putting it on :p


And you need the Flash program to make Flash movies.... probably quite expensive ><

As long as there's the Internet, there's at least one thirteen-year-old schmuck who hates everything. :p

Anyway, the animation was pretty good. My only suggestion would be to try and animate the wings while the van is flying. Other than that, I see no problem with the animation.

Ouch!

Did you know, in England, people died because they mixed Red Bull (an obvious stimulant) with alchohol (a depressent) and the mix caused their hearts to stop and die?

Good thing Cid didn't do that.

Good animation, and I wouldn't really mind too much what those people on Newgrounds say. There's those fourteen year old retards who only go their lookin' for porn and don't respect anything that's not violent or involve nudity.

That was very cutesy. I didn't know volkswagon made campers though. I liked how you called it the petrol station (proper), and I liked how it was kind of a red bull commercial. In fact you should sell that to red bull and have them use it as a commercial

Thanks BlkKnight, Zaphier and blue_midget192. It didn't get blammed anyway!

Oh and yes Volkswagen make (or made) campervans, there's a few different sorts, they are pretty old, the one I drew is a split screen one, one of the oldest sorts. I wanna get one when I'm older xD

Yeah if I make another one I need an original idea, I think the overall story could have been a bit more interesting on that one ^_~

Anyways, thanks Chaos :D
