Happy new year errybody!

I finally finished my first nata animation! ...Only 7 months later!! OuO GO watch it! I kept getting distracted by other things but I recently decided to just sit down and not stop until it was finished. It's not my favourite animation i've ever made. I chopped up the story a bit to much to meet the 3 week deadline and because of that I think a few important narratives were lost. For example the whole last act is meant to allude to his best friend "charlie" having died at a young age, so he used to opportunity to revisit him one last time..there were meant to be a couple more scenes to help hint to that, but hopefully it kinda showed through ..just a little bit?..maybe? ...I guess it just came off as a bit "broke back mountain" instead... lol

so anyway, what's your new years resolution? Inspired by speedosausage's achievement, mine is to release at least 1 new animation every month this year! ;D (though i'm kinda cheating since I already have 4 half finished animations collecting dust.. ;p) *NEW YEAR EDIT regarding last years resolution: WELL THAT FAILED.

Happy New Hangover!!

Dearest CatFat,

Stop being so amazing and talented, you're out doing everyone else.

Sincerely,
Izzy

Haha but seriously, you video Interlude made me tear up (I'm a huge sap for stuff like this :p way to get me going you).

And now, to completely derail from topic, I had, at first decided not to make a New Years resolution. But seeing as how everyone wants to make 2013 great, I opted to feel better about everything. My choices, my actions, and myself. Sooooo, I shall now start to listen to reason and logic! May God help me on my quest c; hehe

And, I look forward to your New Years resolution c; be seeing you much more Mr. Amazing Video.

Love,
Izzy

CatFat responds:

haha, thank you!
It's always good to ameliorate ;D

It's a shame you had to cut out some of the scenes, because I really liked this animation. Maybe one day you could make a remake or a remastered version.

CatFat responds:

yeah it kinda sucks, I also had to animate most of it on 4's so its not as smooth as i'd like, so if I ever did get back to it I'd fix that too ;p

The most touching flash on Newgrounds...
And it's only got 8 k views on Youtube? This is a fucking joke! I wanna share it to everybody! This has got to become one of Youtube's first!
Anyway, how long did it take you to make that animation please? And at what age did you start drawing? And is it ALL frame by frame? Ah man actually instead of saying a whole lot of stuff here, can I PM you with a thousand questions? x3
I added you in my fav animators ;)

CatFat responds:

haha thanks man, yeah sure shoot me a pm if ya want, I always try to respond to them all ;)
Well I had about 3 weeks to write and finish an animation for the tournament, so I wrote it in about a day and then sat on it for a few more days, refining it here and there.
I managed to get about the first minute of the animation finished and the rest storyboarded by the deadline. I returned to it a few months later and just worked on it every now and again for a couple months, but finally decided to just sit down and finish it, once and for all, in december for new years. So I worked on it for another 3 or 4 weeks straight. So all in all i'm not quite sure how long it took me, probably around 3 or 4 months i guess.
I guess it's all frame by frame apart from camera pans and such, which are obviously tweened because it isn't logical to fbf that haha

im really glad people like you do these kind of animations where there is a story where im interested instead of humor in most of these newgroun vids, this has inspired me to be a better animator and artist. thanks for a awsome video and i hope to see more like this in the future :)

CatFat responds:

I'm hoping by the end of this week. But Ockeroid still needs to finish the music and is going away this week..So it will more likely be sometime next week, once he's back. Sorry for keeping you waiting.

Holy shit, I just noticed GTA V is boring is 40 MB. What the FUCK is taking all of that up?

(Updated ) CatFat responds:

Probably the animated backgrounds and audio files lol


YusufYusuf

2014-05-24 19:31:45

btw you should resize that to 888 x 501 so that the Newgrounds logo is pixel perfect

Okay, so we met awkwardly, but wow, glad to have finally met you! I'm glad Oink-moo brought your name up and wanted to hunt you down... I think we got talking about GTA V, which I installed on PC just before I left for Glenside, then she brought up your amazing animation(s), which then got played during the stream... wild times, hope you had all the fun you could handle :)

CatFat responds:

Hey, it was great to meet you! Pico day was amazing if a little overwhelming haha
Hope to see you again next year!

It gets easier each time you go. Thankfully everyone invited were the kindest, most capable NG has to offer.

Too bad it wasn't more of a working holiday, but as it turned out, I needed to get back to the farm anyway... and put even more time into NG on this end of the screen O_o Speech is highly underrated these days, and typed words tend to get lost in the shuffle, unless you bark unseemly.
