Alvin vs. Roshi

This is both my first stop-motion short, and my first real cartoon, period. Before this I'd done lots of conceptualizing, writing and testing, and I'd drawn quite a few comics, but this was the first real cartoon I actually made. As such, it isn't very good. It was completed, editing and all, in one day-- November 13 2005, and the whole thing was just improvised.

The story is that Roshi is trying to sleep or get ready for his big date or whatever, but Alvin has other ideas-- specifically, rocking out (or trying to, at least).

I was planning to do actual music for this, but I got lazy and decided to finish it all in one night, which is why the 'music' is just Alvin singing the same little tune over and over.
