"A Spooky Time" an animated tale of scares and friendship


I just wanted to share the project on which I’ve been working. I hope you’ll like it. Enjoy!

Cute! You even rhymed the character’s name. At times the music overpowered the narrator’s voice but I know you must already know that. I hope others watch and enjoy. For some reason it was relaxing to watch.

Thank you! Mmm… The music was always at half the volume or less, but it still turned out that way. Frankly, since the voices are digital-only, I prefer the awesome soundtrack. I’ve also included subtitles, while the dialogues have speech bubbles. It was a first attempt. :sweat_smile:

I loved the music, too Everything was fine I have hearing problems on one ear so when there’s music is hard for me to hear. But I was so pleased with the subs. and it was an awesome idea!

I’m currently watching the Spooky Time, and I have to say, it’s a nice cartoon! Great job in doing that!!

The narrative voice makes it more frightening!

This cartoon is not like the ones I used to watch, I wonder if there’s a reason behind:
-compared to what I’m used, like in TV cartoons, it’s rare to find a narrative voice that lasts until the end,
-using adult voice for children voice,
-more we progress in the cartoon, fewer parts for children talks.

Maybe that’s why I feel it has a less childish side to it though the format is a cartoon.
But have you drawn the cartoon? Because the drawings are pretty good!

PS: just in case you might want to correct, 0:51 for the sub “I say we paint the school,” (the speech bubble and voice are saying: “I say we paint the school red.”). Not a big deal :slight_smile:


Thank you! :cat::heartbeat::pray: It’s based on a story that I wrote last year for Halloween. My biggest dream, however, was to take the words and transform them into a visual narrative. I grew up watching The Addams Family and Scooby-Doo on Cartoon Network, so the moody 2D animated look with lots of scares is a big part of my childhood memories. I wanted to recreate that, while adding my own flair.

Joey and Frankey are teenagers whose voices are changing. Georgie, on the other hand, is just a little boy. A naughty one. :joy_cat:

PS: I’ve already fixed the subs. Thank you for pointing it out.


It is really nice to see the result of words put into a cartoon. And the drawings are like professionnal :wink:

I see! That’s why I felt it was like a mix between cartoon and novel with the voiceover xd The initial format.
Have you thought of writting directly a new story thinking that it will be in a cartoon format (less voiceover and more characters talking)?

Scooby-Doo! Good memories with my sister and I watching it. She loved it a lot and bought some of their Dvds.

Do you write other genres and do you write for a particular public?

PS: I couldn’t resist… on impulse. Phew, you didn’t take it badly!

Well, I’m a writer at heart. Yes, I’ve published a few books, from a lovely collection of rhyming poems to a dystopian Sci-Fi noir where the reader decides what happens next.





I’ll check that as soon as I come back home :slight_smile: thanks for sharing!!!

They’re so different from each other!
It’s nice everyday poems, I also like the music from the first video. I’ve never seen a promo for a book! It’s a good idea!
I like lyrical poems about love, death, powerful feelings, have you written some?
I wonder, what was the blue/red thingie on the drawing for the 3rd video?

It’s been such a long time I haven’t read poems, thanks for sharing! It makes me want to read poetry now!
(Do you have poets that you would recommend or who inspired you? I’ve never read many poems from other countries, except French poets. The feeling is different when reading French poems (in your language) and poems in another language).

Mmm… That’s an Eco-Safe, High-Speed Suspended Monorail :monorail: I believe Public Transportation is the best way to reduce Traffic and Pollution. I write about it in my Detective novel. :male_detective:

Speaking of writing, this short story incorporates both prose and poetry. It was for a contest. I hope you’ll like it: https://www.facebook.com/notes/adrian-morales/farewell/150174742334970/

Concerning Classic Poetry, I always recommend Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/48860/the-raven
And Aleksandr Pushkin’s The Bronze Horseman: https://www.poetryloverspage.com/poets/pushkin/bronze_horseman.html


I’ve liked the love story. It sounded like a diary, sounds real.
Have you experienced something similar?
It’s difficult to express certain things with words.

“Indeed, at times mistakes were made, but we always thought that our love would simply gloss over them, with no memory of any fault.”

I’ve loved this sentence, simple, but makes you reflect for a long time.

(Psstt! I have to tell you something… I prefer boundless verses, free of rhymes, but your work in creating verses with rhymes is :+1:

Thank you! We all accumulate various experiences on this crazy journey called life. We cherish the good ones, and we hopefully learn from the bad ones. Personally, I like to wrap them up in a nice poetic package and offer them to the world. :gift::earth_africa: Maybe someone out there will appreciate the gift. It’s non-returnable, anyway. :sweat_smile:

(It’s perfectly alright, so don’t worry about it. Again, thank you!)
