This one made me poop out of my nose
I don't know if ths is one of those things that happens to be so unfunny that it's actually funny, but I found myself laughing because it was done so poorly. Not that it was a bad submission, but I could tell that it was done by someone not from an english descent, because everyone had some strong foreign accent, even the people who clearly were animated as Caucasian. That for me was funny, though, overall a cool submission.
I actually have friends that are whiter than me and speak less english. Whoa! I bet your whole world is upside down now (btw my skin colour is like the main character).
I just wanted the two main characters to have different skin colours.. and the rest of them was given randomly, I didn't want to bother with that on this particular animation. I was more focused on the story.
Thanks for the comment.
A bit odd
I guess it wasn't a bad submission in general. I enjoyed the joke a little, although I had to play through it twice to get what was going on. The voice work for the most part was done well actually, which is a refreshing taste, since not a lot of people have the ability to do good voices. The animation/art was solid, although a bit odd. I know that was the style of this submission, but it was a bit odd nonetheless. Overall you did a solid job here, a nice short and funny christmas flash. What more could you ask for?
Thanks for the review.
The voices were REALLY well done in my opinion.
This was the first time I actually attempted to do a flash that didn't involve just clips of movie frames AND one i actually spent time on.
I can draw my own style (kinda like in here, but didn't really emphasize it much) but I can't animate for crap. You could say it was the style of the submission, but...yeah hahahaha.
thanks for the review man, appreciate it :D
A nice little submission, nothing to great about it. There wasn't any voicework and the animation consisted of very little work in general. Despite that it wasn't a bad submission, I mean I could tell you did put some effort in to the submission, but it would have been nice to actually see some serious animation. Other than that, I guess it wasn't too bad of a submission, it certainly did what it set out to do.
The best part of this submission was really the audio voice work. Although some parts didn't sound realistic, I did enjoy that for the most part through this submission. As for the animation, it was solid, again nothing to spectacular, but solid nonetheless. The joke wasn't really funny, in anyway and maybe that was the only thing that took away from this submission. All in all you have a nice short here, just not really all that funny.
Well since you didn't really use your own audio I shouldn't really criticize it, but yea it wasn't all that realistic. I found it to actually detract from an otherwise nice submission. Of course that's that to say that this submission wasn't nicely animated, I mean it flowed well with the audio and you did a good job at making sure it looked realistic. All in all not a bad submission, just not really great in any area.
Well the gag wasn't great, but the voice acting was nicely done I found. The graphics in general were cool too, and I enjoyed the animation more because of it. There wasn't much of a story to this submission as it was just a gag submission, but I enjoyed the tiny bit of dialogue in it anyway. It would have been nice if the joke was a bit more original or at least a bit better thought of, but all in all the submission wasn't bad.
This odd style you have; style of making people into rectagular boxes is original, and interesting, and the way you managed to combine it with very realistic surroundings is really a nice use of juxtaposition. I personally didn't find the acting or the lines very entertaining though, and if anything I found it a bit lazy, some instances the character would have a high voice, then all of a sudden, a much louder and lower voice, which made it seem like you were actually acting, which obviously is never a good thing. All in all you created a very nice submission here, I just didn't like it that much.
The first thing that I found really annoying about this submission was the scarecrow's voice. The way he went from deep to not so deep voice wasn't bad by any means, I just found the voice to be really annoying. That took away from the jokes in my opinion, and although the joke was easily predictable, it should have still been funny. The voice in my opinion kept it from being so, and the submission suffered in my opinion. I also found the graphics to be okay, but sort of rudimentary and composed of simple things like perfect circles or exact lining, that sort of thing. Again it added to the lame parts of this submission, and in the end I found it dragged on way too long that it probably should have. There's no doubt you have skill and this submission is good quality, but I didn't like it.
Very rarely do you see something as simple as playback controls really add quite a nice bit of quality to the submission. The animation was very nicely done, almost professional quality and simple things like facial expressions were done exceptionally well. The way the music was done was also top quality, and the way the guys mouth moved exactly like it was supposed to was also done very nicely. All in all, there isn't a lot of problems with this submission, it really is deserving of a top notch score as well as whatever award it will get. Very nicely done.
