442oons creates animated football parodies, with songs and pictures. It is created by actors and voiceover artists with a love for football, comedy and animation. At 442oons we spent the time teaching ourselves how to do animations in order to be able to combine everything we love into one project!
I had used Crazy Talk 5 and 6 to make silly home videos for a couple of years, so when I was sent the CTA promo materials, I wanted to know more. Animation had always interested me as a viewer, so I thought this would be a good entry level piece of software that I could access. It turns out this is far more to it than entry level! To begin making basic videos, it took me a couple of weeks of self-learning. The tutorials were really helpful and the forums were amazing (not just saying that) with people happy to share their tips and tricks. I would say it has taken me around a year to become really skilled with the software and to unleash its full potential and how to get the best out of its features.

Sometimes I get such a rush of ideas I end up creating a massive job when I started with a three line/10 second idea! The latest 2 minute video took around 8 hours - this was very quick because I could recycle two characters and props I had already created for earlier videos. On the other hand, our Jaws parody (Teeth - 4 minutes) was much more ambitious and took around 40 hours of work as I had to create a lot of new props, scenes, characters and source new animated effects and sound effects as well as recording many different voices for the 12+ characters. It was worth it in the end and the quality of the final video is so rewarding when I watch it back.
In the future, I want 442oons to be renowned throughout the football world for its content, humour and creativity! I hold HISHE up as an example of where I want the channel to be - but in the football world. I want an army of fans lapping up the latest offering! I have so many ideas of where 442oons could end up, that it's hard to nail down beyond that! 442oons could have its own TV show, apps, games, posters, t-shirts - and so on! I think the options are endless and the future of the channel is really exciting.
