The President's New Clothes

These are screenshots from an animation I have made in 2006 based on the famous tale 'The Emperor's New Clothes' by Hans Christian Andersen.

It is drawn entirely in Flash, storyboard included, between concept and execution it took me about 3 weeks. It was great fun to do but very time consuming; I think using Illustrator to design and then import everything into Flash may speed up the process or maybe I am too sloppy still drawing in Flash....I enjoyed working with a subject matter that is very serious and urgent as human rights. The difficulty is to remain visually sharp and have a strong concept as you struggle with form and content.....
