Drop the F-bomb, win an award

Maybe it’s more of a fluke than a recipe for success, but I’ve won another CASE Circle of Excellence Award and was able to drop the f-bomb at work in the process. The winning piece was a video/animation parody of the foul-mouthed cartoon South Park that I created for Stuff2Do last fall.
Background (inside jokes for the campus community):
  • Athletics got a new “Phoenix” logo – non-athletic folks on campus (yeah, I’m overweight) were warned to never use it, penalty of death by locker room towel snapping was issued for all who didn’t comply.
  • Taco Tuesday, the best food deal on campus, was eliminated. In the place of 2 tacos for 2 dollars, we were given overpriced panini – campus climate entered a downward spiral as outraged faculty/staff/students weaned themselves from chili powder and salsa.
Outcome/Results:
  • Doing voices for cartoon characters is incredibly humiliating.
  • Flash is fun, but time consuming.
  • My scissor skills are decent.
  • Taco Tuesday was brought back to campus the following Tuesday. The Chancellor even sent me a note thanking me for my efforts and thought Stuff2Do was “largely responsible for bringing Taco Tuesday back.”

    I noticed the characters weren’t blinking. Terrible animation.

    @Ethan – thanks for the feedback, I’ll try to correct the problem.

    @Kyle – I’m looking forward to the Thrashball Championship game making a live show on Ustream — hopefully, you’ll still be in it, so I’ll have someone to cheer for.
