Preview of New CTU Credits

Since the credits to Episode 18 have been taking so long, there's just no way I'm getting the episode done this month as I originally promised. As I feel bad about this slow down, I decided to show you all a preview of the credits as they currently stand. The show's opening that is parodied here, in case you've never seen it before, is Iria.

I'm kind of nervous to see how long it'll take before you get up to my brother or Zeal. Heh. By the way, didn't someone else originally start CTU?

Yes, CTU was originally started by Andrew "Cryokenetic" Himes. After he made 10 episodes he found that he actually loathed working with Flash all the time, and no longer desired to make CTU any longer. He proposed at first that he would finish releasing the series purely in a script format, but I asked him if I could continue animating it for him. He was very impressed with the flash animation samples - as well as some writing samples - that I showed him, and thus wholeheartedly agreed to let me help.

Episodes 11 through 14 were made from scripts Cryo already had done before I joined, Episode 15 was written by myself, and Episodes 16 onwards were written collaboratively.

I know I haven't been quite as fast as Cryo originally was, but I always try to put out the product of calibre as high as I possibly can. Still, Cryo and I have recently been looking into how to get episodes of CTU out more quickly in the future. For instance, we're considering having Cryo animate Episode 20, while I work on animating Episode 21.

these episodes are funny as hell, I can't believe I've never seen them before. I'm only up to the fifth one and I'm dying here.

sorry for the double post.

I just caught up to your episodes, Clovis, and I think you do a better job on the animation than the previous person. Not to say he didn't do a good job, he did, just that you do it better, lol. They're all really funny. I especially liked episode 16. putting in A.T. was a nice touch.

I loved the nods you gave to Illusion of Gaia and Secret of Evermore. Very classy.

Can't wait for the next episode.


Well.... I can... but you get what I mean.

Thank you, I always try to push myself as far as I possibly can when working with flash. As for Illusion of Gaia, and Secret of Evermore, they were both favorite action RPGs of mine from the Super Nintendo era. Now, as for you comment about Episode 16, I know I am going to look stupid asking this... but, what's "A.T".?

I didn't want to ruin the episode for anyone who has yet to see it, and I forget how to spell his name now, so I'll just say the guy who carried cat in.

Ooooh, ooh... "A.T.", of course... Yes, his inclusion in 16 was something a lot of people enjoyed (especially the person who is the voice of the guards, as he's a REALLY BIG fan of the thing A.T. is most famous for).

By the way, Clovis, where did you find the Kid and Lynx sprites? And is there a Harle sprite you have too?
