xtranormal was a web and desktop based animated movie creation tool. Originally envisioned as an easy way for writers to storyboard their scripts, it had morphed into a tool for people to create simple animated movies. Users could choose from a series of sets and characters, add dialog and character expressions and then publish their movies directly to youTube. For a time, it seemed as though a new xtranormal based video was achieving viral status every week, with the sardonic, monotoned voiced anime teddy bears showing up all over the web.
Here’s an example of an xtranormal movie I made after a certain “Friday”. I’m sorry… The xtranormal bears were everywhere, though, I think they were actually supposed to be dogs.
