New Beginnings

Sequence thumbs



In Progress animation...

video

I'm amazed just how fast time seems to quietly move
through space. I remember as a kid, how nothing seemed
to come soon enough. Now, years roll by like frames
in a film. A shame we only get 100 frames, and that
is being gratuitous.100 frames of animation at 24FPS
will get you 4.1 seconds of film. I guess life's movie
is over in a blink of an eye. Share your story before
it's all over. Here is some animation in progress.
Figured I'd share it, as there needs to be more
animation on this site. It's still early so be brutal.
Happy 09

OH... and that thing you said about time... so true! Why is that? Why does time speed up when we get older...?

Very inspiring post Jamal!
So true!! When you realize you're not going to be arround forever, you may want to re-check your priorities, 'cause you might not have all the time in the world as you once thought you would. Don't you ever wish you could be a kid again?

Se ya!

JAVIER HERNANDEZ said...

I love, apart from aesthetics and design, which reminds me of something gorillaz, the rotation of camera is fantastic.sorry my english is :(

Dave said...

I'm having trouble with the clip - But the colours and design work looks bad ass!

Heather said...

Really beautiful work Jamal!! great sense of timing and the style choice is very suiting.

Josh Lieberman said...

Duuuuddee!
This stuff is amazing. Can't wait to see more.
I saw you mentioned this is done in flash? What's your process been with this project? Are you drawing directly on a tablet in flash?

Gregory said...
