Yes, teh episode is finally updated with the new voicelines.
-------------
Phew, just before the new year, I managed to get one final movie out of the door.

And ehh..I don't like this episode much. It had a lot of problems and rewrites and it's a bit of a mess now, the story makes no sense. And Cazin's voice doesn't work despite 3 retakes. Meh.
It's so unimpressing I gave it the amazing CD-I quality of lame title screen treatment for the..well, title screen. Hoozah.

I wrote the story 2 years ago or something, then when I finally got to animate it, 2 voice actors were unavaileble so I had to cut out the b plot and a running gag with Romzy. But without those, the episode was flat, so I added some loose ideas I had for a summer of sonic movie but meh.

Heh, and the artwork is getting more detailed all the time, which also means I get much more details wrong.
Like it took me to the last 2/3th of the animation to realize... Oh yeah, it rains, maybe characters should be wearing coats and umbrella's and stuff. Whoops. Then again, this is IMP, no logic here. Biggest thing bothering me is that this episode is getting a little too meta occasionally..

Plus the focus on Roger and guest characters doesn't make it feel like a proper IMP episode. Ah well.
Thanks to the IMP gang, and several guests here including :iconshaymus:, the Deliverence gang from :iconjackoograyhan: and recurring guests Sylvia and Frobman.

Moral of the story, introducing new characters in the story works best if they have their own little thing to do, rather then be immediatly invited in the main gang, that's just annoying.
And moral for me, immediatly animate the movie after scripting.

Honestly this to me was a great one. The previous episodes this season seem to have been giving all of their attention to characters like Hhog, Meglif, Ginny, Zody and Tiffany so its nice for a little switch up between which characters are focused on.

if you get ANY amount of free time, work on it. that makes everyone happy because:
1. we dont have to wait as long
2. you dont have to worry about fans begging you for a while

Loved the joke where Roger just stands there for a while then exclaims "I'm still on a crashing train!" The minor resolution that makes us forget the bigger issue is brilliantly used here, the timing was just perfect. Brilliant stuff! Kudos!

yeah, plot is a mash up of 3 diffrent half episodes, so it's a mess.
Glad the jokes worked then, at least.
I'll make this a lesson for myself in writing then.

True, you wouldn't want to end up a music video animation like some animators who will not be named at this time because I don't want to hurt their pride. I prefer plots over random animated sequences any day.

Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
oh, I like doing music video's, like having some variety and it teaches me more about flow, dynamic shots and movement which I can use in action scenes for the "proper" animations.

Heh, was that a nod to Wonchop?
He's probably too busy having a real career to have time to make story animations in his free time anymore.

Though, with the SoS reference, I'm surprised Danbuster didn't pop up as a background character... ;p

:iconrogerregorroger:
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, the thing with SoS is, I had an entire SoS episode planned, and Danbuster (well, Retsubnad rather) would have had a role of a poltergeist kinda character tortuering some IMP members lost in the subways.

However that subplot didn't make it into here, so I''ll still owe you that story for later.
