For those who follow me on tumblr, you'd know that for the past six days I've been plugging away at pages for an interactive comic for my senior thesis. Well hurray, it's complete! This is probably the fastest I've ever produced a project of this size before, but despite the time-crunch I'm really satisfied with the final product.

My goal for this project was to not only tell a story in a new medium (a flash comic) but I wanted to try my hand at retelling a narrative in a completely different form-- What I chose to do was translate Ludo's song "Lake Pontchartrain", an audio time-based piece, into this flash comic, a visual time-based piece. The song has a fantastically told narrative that I've been wanting to work with for awhile now, so I'm extraordinarily happy that I've had my chance!

For my first time working in flash, I'm really happy with how everything worked out, and I definitely want to do more with it in the future!

Also, though it is stated in the credits of the comic, I will reiterate that I take no credit for the dialogue/lyrics or narrative, and that solely belongs to Ludo. This was a fan-inspired derivative work created because this song is pretty freaking awesome, and if you haven't given it a listen, I definitely encourage you to!

Otherwise, what you see is my interpretation of the lyrics.

Enjoy!


Should the flash fail to load on deviantArt for whatever reason, it can also be viewed on my portfolio site here.

I made this even more mind-blowing by reading it in time with the music. Thus my mind was blown..not like it wasn't already but it exploded again

The only thing that could possibly make this even the slightest bit more epic than it is right now is if you had the song automatically playing along with the slideshow...

IF YOU POSTED THIS ON YOUTUBE WITH THE SONG I WOULD DIE!

That's awesome. I love the song by Ludo and this was done really well. When I started reading it was like "I should totally play the song while I watch" ^_^

I've always thought that Ludo's songs told the best stories with the most creative lyrics, and your depiction of this song is excellent. Is there any hope of seeing any more of their songs beautifully visualized like this? I think Anything For You would be quite fun to see ^_^
