An animation of Jack Chick's Somebody Goofed by Syd Garon and Rodney Ascher. Somebody Goofed was our first animated movie, we found a Chick track and decided we would make a film about it and learn After Effects in the process. We tried to be faithful to the original, we didn't modify the text and used the original character drawings whenever possible, a couple of things were redrawn by Rodney for technical reasons. "Somebody Goofed" was created in 1998, it took us about 6 months I believe.
Bart Cheever from D-Film had these kind words to say about "Somebody Goofed";
"To me, Goofed was the Birth of a Nation of After Effects films, and was really the aesthetic blueprint for much of what you see on TV today. So many people have copied their cool 2D photo-animations, and their style is used so heavily today on VH1, E, MTV, and so on -- it's easy to forget how groundbreaking the film was. No one had ever really done anything like it before.
I loved the way Goofed is this rich moving collage of newsprint religious tracts, album covers (can you spot Paul's Boutique?), clips from 70's gangster films, cigarette ads from old magazines etc. To me, Goofed represented a whole new way of collaging various forms of media."
