a little background story,
so
intuit, the makers of turbo tax had this contest where you could win $25,000 if you made the best rap video about turbotax.

Vanilla Ice decided the grand prize winner. ....Vanilla Ice...

anyway
I got 4th place. 2nd would've got me $5,000. 3rd would've got me $1,000.

The grand prize winner and 3rd place guys emailed me out of the blue and told me I should've won grand prize. it was very gracious of them, and I'm not saying it to brag or to whine; It just seems like an interesting tidbit to the story.

Vocals, beat, and animation by me. sorry about the crappy youtube compression. I don't know how people got their videos to look decent before adobe premiere elements

but without further ado
here is the tax rap
hope you enjoy:

I'll admit I began watching skeptically, but that was sweet. Really good effort and video.

That was pretty badass :)

How long did the animation take? What programs did you use?

Visually very nice. Especially when the camera is hovering over the crowd.

thanks everyone

@deadeye
it took about a week. I called in sick to work
that was a week including recording the vocals, too, although that was the first day

I used anime studio to do all the animation
and sony vegas to put it all together,
originally all the lipsync was synced
and there were a few things moving that were synchronized with the music that aren't in the final,
but I was in such a hurry to get it in that I didn't notice I had slided everything over a split second somewhere in there. oh well...

but yeah, anime studio, which coincidentally, the limitations of anime studio are a big inspiration for the animation engine I'm making with construct :mrgreen:
