Hey Newgrounds! I'll elaborate on the title of this news post in a moment.
It's been years since I've submitted a Flash movie to the portal and although I've never produced anything worthwhile, I haven't quit my pursuit to an animation career. Since I stopped making Flash movies I've been attending aharsh program in traditional animation which is a branch of the internationally acclaimed, Sheridan College (basically the Harvard of animation colleges). I'm with 11 other guinea pigs who are test driving this new limited enrollment program. We work primarily with pencil and paper so there won't be a lot of computer animated pieces coming from me for a while. I just simply don't have the time to even suckle on the breast of Flash. But we do a shit load of Photoshop for layout design. Something that requires an expensive tool called a "tablet". Something you are probably familiar with. I'm in a shit-ton of debt already with tuition, residence, living expenses, expensive industry grade art supplies and books. What am I getting at? Well a few years ago Tom Fulp recognized me (and others) as a promising Flash animator on Newgrounds. I was given, for free, a Wacom Intuos3 Tablet. It was a fantastic gift! But around that time is when I stopped making Flash (oops). Well, I just wanted Tom and the community to know that it was not a waste to give it to me because that tablet has given me such a leg up in my class for my computer-related assignments and will definitely be put to constant use throughout my animation career. You definitely made the right choice by choosing me as one of your Wacom contest recipients because it has helped me a lot and saved me money, even though I've been invisible on this website ever since.
You guys can check out a taste of my progress on my art blog: Fishbag.ca. I'm certainly still learning and not even close to the best in my class but I do excell the most with my directorial skills, writing, storyboarding and character design thanks to a unique sense of humour that I developed by being involved in the Flash community on Newgrounds. So thank YOU, the community, as well. And I will continue to lurk around.
And if Max Gilardi reads this, I showed my professor "The Northern Incident" and he though it was fantastic, especially for a Flash film. Not only was the animation good but you show great knowlege of timing, setting up shots. I personally liked the art style and the layouts. Great work, man.
