Friends

It's been a long while since the last one, but finally we have a new does a thing, this time starring the awesome Bombermaaaaaan!

Bomberman Does A Thing!

This one was fun for two reasons: firstly, I got to work with the talented Jeremy Baker (GameBuddy) and Jirard Khalil (The Completionist). Great performances by both, and great to animate to! And secondly, I didn't have to do any major lip syncing! Cause they don't have mouths! Yeaaahhh!!

So yeah, check it out if you haven't seen it yet, and hope you enjoy it :)

I have a pretty couple questions, and I'd like to take whatever you answer with as advice to go about my career path.

How many years of experience do you have with animation, do you have a degree in the field, and would you say having one or any kind of documented certificate would be required to be accepted to work on professional animation projects (like when you worked on Skullgirls a while back)?

Sure!

I've been professionally animating for about 6-7 years, including a Bachelors degree in Animation.

Getting an animation degree does help, not only because it's a nice document to show you're qualified to do stuff, but the experiences, techniques, skills and knowledge you get from studying under other awesome animators allows you to build a pretty strong demo reel and portfolio demonstrating your work to potential employers.

It's certainly been the foundation for a lot of my work, and I've been applying these skills I learned at Uni to every job and every fun side-project I've done.

If you're considering applying to get an animation degree, I say go for it. And good luck!

How do you export a Flash file to a SWF with good sound quality? I've tried this on a video I worked on yesterday and it came out with this feedback that blurs the audio quality. It sounds like early Newgrounds videos, like the first Parody Rangers videos, and I don't want that. And using Swivel to turn it into an MP4 doesn't make it go away.

Is there a setting I gotta fix in Flash to make the export sound properly, or is it an issue with my computer?

Oh yeah! Took me a while to work out, but you first go to  File > Publish Settings.

Then where it says "Audio Stream" and "Audio event", click and change them to something like Raw, then un-tick "convert stereo to mono".

Should do the trick :nod:

I think you mentioned you animate some pieces in photoshop, right? Do you use Adobe, or some other version?
