HISTORY and CRITIQUE
Started late 2004, completed 2012
Created in Adobe Flash & MS paint

Super Duck Hunt is a fully featured and stylised animated short, presented with authentic 8bit video game visuals. This project uses thousands upon thousands of painstakingly dotted, original sprites created specifically for this film.

Only a handful (12) of sprites originally existed for the Dog before I intervened.

Please forgive the dips in quality at times; this was my training piece, where I cut my teeth in the field of animation.

Complaints about the story are warranted; this short film was not made in a linear fashion; The intro and ending are the newest footage while the middle is the oldest, with touch ups.

Super Duck Hunt is essentially a series of difficult animating challenges, presented to myself, with a further effort to seamlessly string it all together in an entertaining manner.

The story was of course an after thought, but I am really pleased to see the negative reaction to an unresolved premise from a few viewers, which tells me that those people became invested in the story initially presented, telling me that I did something right.

There are pacing issues throughout that I am aware of, this seems to be my biggest problem when it comes to animation, I overestimate the patience of the viewer.

PROJECT GOAL
Create a grand pixelated Super Mario animation minus Mario using another infamous, exciting but under used retro gaming character in his place. Create original sprite assets to accomplish this goal.
