Hey, I'm very pleased to present The Piper's Waltz, my latest animation. This is for the Winter Flash Off Contest. Before I say anything about it, please don't complain that it is in a video format, if you have a problem with it, just don't watch it.
So basically, this is a culmination of everything I know. In this short animation, I used my knowledge of Flash, After Effects, Illustrator, hand-drawn elements, stop motion, as well as probably some others. I think it is my most polished and professional piece thus far. I put a lot of work into it, so I hope it shows. When watching this animation, please keep an open mind. I realize that this is not a direct narration of the Pied Piper, and that is the point. It's supposed to be an experimental interpretation to convey the dark and eerie mood of the Pied Piper. I apologize for the large file size but it is a pretty high quality video with good sound quality.
By the way, there is an easter egg in there that I also worked very hard on. It's really difficult to find, but if you do, I hope you like it. It's really inconspicuous, so many of you will have trouble finding it. Har Har Har!
