Entry #3

The Retail Experience

2011-07-30 16:06:05 by Linkakami

The Retail Experience is my third submission to Newgrounds, and my...5th time using flash I think? I'm certainly learning new little tricks and animation techniques along the way, and I'm getting a bit smarter about it each time.

This latest flash was actually conceived last August when I was working a retail job for the summer and got annoyed with people who regarded the back room as some magical place where we hid items from them when the reality of the situation was that our back room usually just carried things we had /too many of/ or were too big to put on the floor (like furniture). I got several talented voice actors (RicePirate, Queen0fHearts, EyesAdrift) who were helpful and recorded their lines last August, but in between then and now I got busy with my final year at university (Right before I could start on the flash, I started an intro to animation class, which Egospace was the final for) and had no time to work on it. Not working this summer, waiting to make my first book available online, and getting ready to travel in a week, I wanted a quick project I could do to keep me busy, and I remembered the voice recordings they had done for me.

So tl;dr,
Wrote a year ago, storyboarded and animated in 6 days 11 months later.

If you enjoyed it, please spread it to friends!

Great to see a piece you worked on for a while getting a nice reception :) Congrats!

Linkakami responds:

Indeed, it's doing better than I expected! Your recordings definitely helped give it quality. I thought of a possible next animation, but it's all just stuff in my head for now. We'll see what I come up with next!

Congrats on daily feature! I'll be looking forward to your next project. :)

Linkakami responds:

Daily feature and front page! If I ever need a female voice actor again, you're top'a the list!

Wow look at me being all late haha. Congrats on the front page and daily feature man! If you need a voice again don't hesitate to ask bro.

Noted, as I likely will be needing you soon! I'm attempting to write a new script this week.
