I think it might end up becoming a recurring theme that every time Octavia's parents celebrate their wedding anniversary, something goes wrong in the most comical way. =P

So, this is the final piece for my 'Principles of Animation' Module at university, and to say this was my first major work in Flash, I'm pretty hap[y with it. Certain errors, such as the audio being a little out of sync towards the end, will be rectified by Monday. I don't have Flash on my home laptop.

And for those of you who are always on the look out for references in my work, there's a nod to the BBC Radio series 'The Navy Lark' tucked away in there. ;)

I haven't got too much to say besides the fact that you did a really great job! Octadad's expression when facing impending doom is pretty fantastic and I couldn't help but laugh. xD
Awesome job, my friend! :D

HAH! Very funny!

 

I can just hear poor Octamum saying:

 

:iconoctamumplz: :iconsays3plz: Next anniversary, I CHOOSE THE DESTINATION AND WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO!

 

Provided they survive this... :XD:

 

EXCELLENT work, dude! :D

Indeed, they'll have survived this in some bizarre way, probably with Octamum using her husband as a flotation device against his will. :D

Thanks chap. :)

Actually, it's not really been proven to my knowledge the the inhabitants of Equestria don't eat fish.

Any-who, the 'Happy Anniversary' card, the throw pillows, the picnic basket, the candelabra. They all point towards a nice anniversary dinner in candlelight on the boat, with fish caught fresh from the lake. ;)

I think Octadad's either strong or the fish be "Trollin'".

It's a good flash. I'd suggest a bit more movement on Octadad (particularly around the bowtie) As he moves around, But that's for consideration in other flash animations.

I'm pretty sure the fish is 'trollin'. Notice how gently it dragged the bait down. :P

BarryFromMars Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
That's what I was thinking (Minus the gentle dragging of the bait). I was referring to when he moved and looked at Octamum.

It' all animated in Adobe Flash. Backgrounds were created in Photoshop. To animate the characters it was a mixture of drawing them out several times over and over again, much like traditional work but with a graphics tablet instead of pencil and paper. At other points the individual limbs were animated just by simply moving them slightly between frames, much like cut-out animation. :)

A wonderful job!  Also, maybe the Octaparents should try going to the beach next time.  I can't guarantee safety from other things, but at least they wouldn't be fishing :D

Hah, nice! I think you'll get a good grade for it.

I like how you let the action happen off-screen in the end, too - leaving things to the viewer's imagination can be a very powerful tool.

I can still remember when I first handed the storyboard to my lecturer with that scene on it. her response was:

"I would call you out for making it easier for yourself, but you could just as easily point out where I did it somewhere back when I worked on Dangermouse!" XD
