“Origins: Part 1” .SWF format links:
This Flash animation was done for my final project for a 2-D Flash Animation class I took at the University at Buffalo in the summer of 2012. This animation covers the first 3 pages of a comic called “Origins” that I wrote and illustrated when I was a sophomore in high school. The animation was created as a practice in conveying my interest in furry culture by telling a story about a character that I created when I was younger. It’s purely for entertainment purposes to get the audience interested in the characters, and possibly lead the audience to find out more about them and the culture the characters are represented in.
The story tells of Kaze (the main heroine of the story), finding a strange male red fox in the woods she guards. When Kaze can’t determine if the invading creature is a friend or foe, she charges at the life form, intending on killing it. However, when she gets close enough to see the invader, she somehow feels as if she has met this fox before, but can’t remember why. The rest of the story revolves around Kaze and the strange male fox figuring out how they are connected to each other by exploring their pasts together.
The animation was completed over a span of 5 days. The total length of the animation is 745 frames, equaling to about 47 seconds. Part 2 was to be created by the end of the summer, but due to time constraints, I was unable to do so.
