** If animation doesn't play, just hit F5 and it should play**

Found this lurking in a forgotten folder on my laptop.

Back when I was pitching the show "My Friend Rabbit", the clients were only interested if they could be shown what the characters could look like when they moved. So I loaded up flash, and animated this on the spot using my Cintiq in just an hour. They loved it, and this clip pretty much sold the show. Now, the show was animated in ToonBOOM Harmony, but this flash clip is worth posting because it sold the show. Sentimental value. Heh..

Hand drawn animation, Flash 8, using WACOM Cintiq 21UX.

Amazing! I'm pretty sure you hear that constantly but still! What program do you prefer?

Heh..  Thanks!  Personally I prefer to work in Toon BOOM Harmony.  I know there are loads of die-hard Flash users out there who would argue with me till they're blue in the face, but the simple fact that Harmony is a dedicated production tool, and Flash is still a web development tool makes all the differences in the world.  Those who dedicate themselves to at least trying to learn ToonBOOM quickly learn exactly what I mean.

Pricing for ToonBOOM Harmony can vary because it's production software, and is usually bought in bulk.  As in studios will buy 15-30 licenses in one shot which they can negotiate if they're buying a lot of seats or upgrading from previous versions.  But in general, you CAN buy a single user license, and I believe the price is around $2000 if I'm not mistaken.  Version 11 is about to be released and that comes in 2 flavours, studio and freelance.  The Freelance version is rumoured to be a bit cheaper as it's meant to be for single users freelancing for larger studios.  I don't yet have any newer info on that.  I'm currently using version 10.3

Wow! I thought it'd be a lot higher than that for one license. XD Thank you for telling me!

Hah, thanks! Yup, I was series concept developer, straight through to animation director.  I developed the look, the animation style, the characters, concept for the show, and directed animation after the show was picked up and put into production.  It was a super fun project, and I'm extremely proud of it.  I'm quite sad we only lasted 17 episodes though.

This is very fluid animation. I can see why this sold the show.
Good job. I Hope traditional animation can make a comeback, I miss it...
