This took me freakin forever.  I tried to do all kinds of stuff but finished without time to properly antialias some of the stuff against the dark background.  If you have issues with the light, I tried to make the shadows slightly tangible,  so that the darkness sort of sticks to the guy as he stands and progressively engulfs him upon exitting.   So...stuff I'm proud of to notice is the light as he enters and leaves, and the fact that he (almost) mouths "buh-ray-uns" as he says it.  Also, all the disco lights have a light and powerdown sequence which was a bitch to do. 

270 frames...close enough to finished...

the waqy you started with a black background and end with a black one makes it very neat, rather than having it cut of and restarted like some animations, nice work and congrats on the double award :)

WOW! This is nuts!   I love the way you fade him as he walks off the canvas.

very good, i love the movement!

The animation is really cool. But I think the zombie himself as pixel, asside the animation, could have used some more work. He's rather jaggy and there's alot of banding going on.

Best powerpoint presentation ever :P

smokehound (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/20/2008 14:22
Hahah that was great. I love how he became enveloped in the darkness at the end.

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/20/2008 12:01
Thanks all.  Everything was done by hand.  But the whole time i was sequencing and fooling around with layers in GG I was thinking how this would have taken 1/10th of the time in powerpoint or even game maker or something.

Were all the words done by hand?

Sorry, it is possible to vote on this piece, but it's in the archive of the current competition, so I was a little confused. :D
