[link] Please go look at the youtube version too!! [link]

FINISHED FINAL VERSION :D Now with improved audio quality and expanded title/credit slides and punchlines.

I've been working on this project for weeks. It was made for the Teausa.org Calm-a-sutra 2009 video contest where competitors make videos showing different kinds of tea and different ways of drinking it. It generally is just trying to promote tea as a beverage you all should be consuming.

I have to say I'm a fan of this video contest scholarship thing; I can enter animations, I might win some much needed money, and as you may or may not have been able to tell from my journal status bars, I apparently only drink tea and water (I like to think of water as a really thin tea).

Anyway, part of this competition is decided by popularity of the videos on Youtube, so I hope you all go see the youtube version of this movie too [link] .

Wish me luck!

I like how you did the end. The timing on it was excellent. One more second, and it would've been too long of a pause.

Wait a sec... Hang on, guy with short black hair that sticks up in the front... Girl with short-medium length brown hair... That couple wouldn't happen to be based on anyone you know, would it? O.o

The boy is a little bit based off of you :) kinda just turned out that way when trying to balance the number of people with filled in black hair and people with other colored hair and balancing boys vs. girls.

oh, the updated version is even better =D I don't remember any specific examples, but the whole thing plays much smoother now =D
I don't know exactly how, but it seems you worked out the kinks x3

cute idea too, I can definitely see this being a tv commercial (although they'd probably use real people)

It's mostly just a higher quality export. It makes it smoother, better audio and video quality, and the file's bigger. I'm glad you like it. :D

The end is great too. All around nice work! I'll be sure to view it on youtube multiple times, and share the link around (I'm sure Tracy would love this animation)

Aw thanks, I'm glad you're inspired. The last one still holds a little place in my heart, though :) There are other programs you can practice animation with If you don't want to lay down all of that money for flash :D
