I used be into flash mostly because a lot of people I looked up to were always putting out the most entertaining content here on Newgrounds. At the time I was huge into anything related to video games, and it seemed like the only way I could be a part of it was to jump on the animation bandwagon...
The few flashes I did make are mostly game related, and even though they were terrible... I'm still proud of the videos I produced. That being said, the ends didn't justify the means, the amount of time it takes to create what I thought would be entertaining, just didn't seem worth it.
It doesn't help that my artistic side is fucking dyslexic, and that the economy is shit (which really sucks out any free animation time) but the main issue I guess is that it stopped becoming fun. That was the biggest draw back then, to just have fun with it, and not make it seem like work. Really the only way I could have fun with animating any more is to get drunk before I start... that's all fine and good but that also kills your concentration.
I am still a huge video game fanatic, I still want to get Drunk, and I still want to create content... What I'm doing now is starting a youtube channel where I play games, drink, & record it! I'm gonna be doing reviews, top tens, let's plays, etc. which is possibly the most unoriginal way to make content... But WHAT DO I CARE? I'M DRUNK!!!
The most important thing is that it's fun... it's extremely fun, even though I play some super shitty games, I listen to myself when editing and laugh at how pissed I'm getting. it's the same feeling I used to get when an animation was slowly coming together.
I may still animate later on, but for right now, I'm having a blast and am really excited for what I could accomplish this year!
