      I know I'm kind of grasping at straws but at 10:17 you use these action screens (which I've seen a few times, including in your Mean Girls 2 video) but I've spent so long trying to figure out what this is from with my best guess being Thundercats (which it's not, it just has some similar shots in the opening). Can I please ask you what they're from?

    Is there any particular reason why you prefer editing your voiceovers in Premiere over another Adobe product like Audition or Soundbooth?

    The real question is how do you animate so fast other animation channels take six months just to make one video

    Alex: "FIshowsrs tend to hide their personal ways of making video like a trade secret. It's not that important guys." Also Alex: "If you can't figure out how to get TV footage on your own, you shouldn't be doing this at all. I'm not telling you how to get that." Me: *Cri*

  • SammysLittleWorld

    THANK YOU for putting the Kare Kano clips in there! Some of the animations in your videos reminded me so much of that show and it was driving me nuts! I couldn’t figure out if you drew inspiration from that show or if you and the show drew inspiration from a completely different thing! Thank you! Now I can finally sleep.

    I love how in the beginning he talks about how youtubers always never tell their audience anything about how they animate, and then he proceeds to do that and not tell us how he gets his clips from movies, like bruh what a hypocrite

    9:00 there's this cartoon network show called ok ko let's be heroes(its pretty popular) which is one of the veryyyy few shows that draw most of the characters off model for the majority of scenes and pausing a lot of the frames will just make the characters look so funny just by looking at them and not listened to their jokes on its own

  • RareEnigma™

    I give my gratitude for taking the time to create this video sir, as a beginner animator your information and advice is immensely helpful.

    Oh wow, I felt alone in the minority of people who still animate frame by frame... I just love the fluidity and control it gives. It's really heartening to see someone thriving with the style, lol I knew there was something I liked about it. I didnt think it was almost exactly the same way I do it...

  • Tacospaceman
