[link removed, movie deleted in favor of completed version]
i was going to add sounds, including sounds for the worm sqeaking along, but i couldn't figure out how to easily do that in Premiere, and i'm not going to manually copy and paste those repetitions. there is one .wav for contraction of the tail, and one .wav for the expansion of the tail, and the pair of them add up to 10 frames. i'm not doing click, copy, click, paste over a dozen dozen times (154, to be exact), plus trying to time other sound with the animation. if i could clone a selection of several clips and just paste it a few times, or if i could repeat them over a definite amount of time, great. otherwise this animation isn't going to have sound. if you know how to do this in premiere 6, please tell me.
i've already completed an iris-out in order to transition to the credits, but that's not shown in this one. now after i do the credits (and sound, if i learn how), it'll be completely finished, and i'll post the final one. full-size, bandwidth permitting.
