Edit: Argh, the timing was completely off in the first version I uploaded. DX After some painstaking editing, I've finally synced it up. Now I think it's finally done.

Note: The file size is very large because it has audio something like a few hundred scanned pictures in it, so this might take a while to load. ^^; I may try resizing it again, but I'm not really in a hurry to (takes up most of a day to do that). Sorry and thanks for your patience. :)

With the run of the show officially over, here is the animation that I did for the prologue sequence. We used a projector and large screen (which was thankfully very quiet when it rose back up) already installed in our theater/auditorium. It stayed paused on the first screen (which was projected on the red curtain) until the show was officially ready to start. I also had to plug in a simple looping black screen at the end because when couldn't stop it or turn off the projector without Windows or a "Are you ready to shut down?" window popping up. ^^;

The audio in this is from the Broadway soundtrack (which is what I used to timing and in no way own), but for the run of the show a live orchestra played and one of the actors did the narration. Also, the beginning picture is not my own. It's the official Disney logo for the musical (with a rose picture added in the background) that we got the rights to use along with the rights to perform the show. Many productions use a gobo (think spotlight stencil =p) and shine it on the curtain while the audience is getting seated at the start. This image shined on the curtain worked in about the same way.

I went for a sketchy look since one of the directors saw a very cartoony version done for another production and hated it. Hope you like it. :)

I have never seen the musical because I have seen the Disney film on VHS in Spanish when I was very young. The Beast was so cute. :)

Thanks! :) Yeah...with the drawing, clean-up, scanning, and importing into Flash, I could spend a whole day working on a segment that amounted to 2 seconds. ^^; But it was worth it for the positive reaction it's gotten. :D

Thanks! :D That's one of my favorite parts, too. A lot of the other sections came to mind quickly while I listened to the narration, but that one I had to think about for a while. Funny how those kind of things often turn out the best for me. :)

What do you think would be a better thumbnail for it? I just used this one because it's the first frame and has the recognizable Disney logo. =p

Maybe still have that for the thumbnail - but add the word "Animated!!!" to it - that way more people will click! :-D
