Haha, yes! I animated! Felt good, too. . .

Anyways, this was my final for my kineseology class this quarter. . . a media presentation about sleep.

So I thought-- heck, why not? I'll animate it. I should've known by now that such a project always has a headache of some sort attached. So sleep deprivation, here's to you!

The hilarity of it is, I really DID loose 4 hours worth of animation work when I saved over my .fla file with the old one. So I had fun poking fun at myself.

Excellent video! I loved the little characters in the movie :) Were they creatures made specifically for this animation or are they your characters?

Little known fact: Although the recommended 8 hours of sleep a day is a good way to sustain mental health and creativity, it has been proven that those who only get 6-7 hours of sleep a day were more likely to live longer.

This is BRILLIANT! I'm defiantly one of the ones that doesn't get enough sleep. Oh well I can sleep when Robert forces me to.
byfuzzerabbit Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010
I remember watching this in high school thinking "this isn't true. you party at college" Boy was I wrong XD

I wish I had gotten more sleep when i was little =.=
Rorani Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010  Student General Artist
When I was in elementary chool, i got about 9-11 hours of sleep on average. In middle school, it was about 7-8 hours. Not in high school, it's about 6-8 hours max....some nights being 4-5 hours.

Last year, I slept pretty regularly on weekends. This year, I don't get enough sleep during the week and too much on the weekends. Like this week. I averaged about 6-7 hours this week. Last night, I slept for about 12 hours plus 3 hours in the afternoon. it's terrible xD and i'm still tired

It takes a lot of creative acumen to make a fan out of me, and I am pleased to count myself among yours. I believe you have a GREAT future both as an artist and an animator!


I have shared the link to this with a large group of my friends....:heart:

I can't believe I'm only seening this now, lol
This was great. I loved watching it <3 and what made it even better was that my friend pointed it out to me because I oversleep and often have lack of sleep.

I do take pride in my zombie powers, but I also like to have a healthy body! fav+

You, my friend, have a talent with these! Keep it up~!
TsukikotheServal Featured By Owner May 27, 2009

aznboardergirl Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
so true! i think i definitely need that time management class... ><

well animated and good amount of proof to back it all up. love it!

and coincidence that the dA ad at the top of the page says 'a great night's sleep every night"? :XD:
MythrilWolf Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009
Lol! I love those ever so subtle "I'm losing sleep over this damn project" messages! Not that I think you hated it altogether, but stillll. it was funny. How cute ^^ Was this hard to make?

Anywho very fun animation. Fav :P
Chiusi Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009
Brilliant. Your animation is spectacular, your drawings hilarious, and your presentation... extremely unique. Any sleep you lost over this flash was well worth it.
Wolf-Fate Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2009
SWEET! I was actually looking for some animations for my genital herpes project (where the HECK am I supposed to find 5?!), but this was cute, and I learned so much about sleep form this! I'd better go take a nap now . . .
HuggleMistress Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
For the "women oversleeping" statistic, I wonder if it's possible for the reason that when couples share a bed, women don't sleep as well than if they were to sleep alone. While men on the other hand, actually sleep better when next to their partner. So, if women don't sleep as well, then obviously they'll be more likely to oversleep. I wonder if that's possible. Unless those statistics are for highschool student....then i guess not. XD

equinox-chan Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2008
OMG this was amazing! You're animation is so clean, smooth, and the style is unique! Not to mention it's a good report. You made it interesting. And I will admit to being one of those women who oversleeps, which explains why I'm tired all day lol Nice

Zynnx Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2008
haha, i had a similar experience with the saving thing. i got lucky, because we were just starting a project, and it wasn't expected to be amazing, but it was still annoying. my computer's (was a school computer, not personal one) hard drive got corrupted, and i lost everything from the first in the animation I sort of made the moral of the story "back up your work" hehe (i love your animations by the way, sorry for the comment not actually being so much on the art :P)
Tigris-Tusha Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
That was fantastic lol. So what did you end up getting as a grade on that? I found it pretty informative myself. So TY :D
