Not bad for a first animation. I might go back and remake this now that I have a better mic and knowledge with music recording. Derpy eats a muffin.
This song's really old and I was crap at mixing instruments. Maybe I'll return to it now that I'm 200000% better.
Song: Legacy of Star Swirl

Yay! After Pencil Miracle and I did 20 days of animating and video editing (Over a period of 2 months) for 6+ minutes of animation, we finally have a video for Octavia and I performing on ze cellos.
Pencil Miracle randomly came up with the idea for a flash animation music video. I agreed, and together we came up with this: The Legacy of Star Swirl the Bearded. This one is by far her largest flash animation the second largest video by her was a mere 30 seconds. This one is her first animation in the Lauren Faust art style. All dresses, tuxedos, and bowties are by Pencil Miracle. All the ponies are from the show, with the exception of Miracle and I.
The song is called "Legacy of Star Swirl." You better know who that is.
And yes, these are real cellos. I wrote this song to commemorate Star Swirl the Bearded, a pony nearly everypony has forgotten about. I take my inspiration from the old, classical stuff and combine it with the new, electro-modern music today. I have made the song emulating a cello duet, while at the same time, it sounds like a cello duel.
Tools Used: Flash CS5, Logic Pro 9, Final Cut Pro, Tascam US-100, MXL-990, a good old cello
