This is the first Newgrounds cartoon I've watched in like 8 years. It's pretty good I think and maybe just needs a little audio work? I dunno, good job fellas.
Yeh we have quite a lot of trouble with audio at the moment but we're trying to get it right :)
Why are his teeth like that? It really detracts from the narrative. Considering the rest of the song he should have a fairly decent set of teeth... it's just his hobby is moyda.
Are you people serious? Why should he have decent teeth? Maybe he has different priorities in life that don't involve perfect dental records. Holy shit... It's not like I just fucking whipped up this movie over the weekend... Thank you for the 5 out of 10 though... for apparently not having a main character with bright pearly whites.
If you have the ability to model and animate things even as well as what this was, then you should totally be making an effort to do something original instead of rehash everything that's been done before, and things that may have not been done but also should not be.
That said, it looks like a lot of time went into this and you made an effort to complete something which is more than a lot of people will ever do.
Technique and originality need work
Summary: Two people with hormonal and mental deficiencies ruin an awkward Thanksgiving gathering by eating food, expelling gas from two separate orifices and then proceed to barbeque the host. As poignant and beautiful as this was meant to be, I think it just missed the boat entirely.
As original as you thought it might have been - a roasted person with an apple in their mouth has already been done and it was executed in an even more distressing manner while still being art.
Buy the movie, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover by Peter Greenaway
Overall, keep working on enhancing your technical ability in Flash... I sense that more meaningful and better looking projects are down the road.
LMAO!!! "Two people with hormonal and mental deficiencies ruin an awkward Thanksgiving gathering by eating food, expelling gas from two separate orifices and then proceed to barbeque the host. "
OMG. YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HARD I LAUGHED AT THAT DESCRIPTION. Despite you not liking it, I forgive you because that comment was fucking hilarious hahaha. barbecue the host:P:P:P lol
Funny in spots but...
I'll get to the critique first in case you don't read the rest: The animation was decent in the limited style you chose. Voices were fine but you can tell in spots that it's not recorded that well. This can't be helped with low budget so I'm not blaming you. It moved well and was edited well.
Could have benefited from losing that overplayed anime crap. When's that fad going to die, anyway? Seriously - next time you do something - no anime.
This actually goes for everyone. If you're not from Japan or you are from Japan but don't live there anymore - knock that off. Seriously. It's done. Move on.
Enjoyable and promising but needs tweaking
This is quite decent and everything, but, as Hemmingway would say, "the first draft of anything is crap."
I think that if you sat on the story side of this for a while before actually producing it, it would have turned out better.
496 days is like 1 year and 5 months or something. It's almost as lame as when mothers refer to their babies as being 14 months old and all that jazz - it's just kind of pointless. The number of days didn't have anything to do with what you were saying in the animation so just make it something simple.
And on that point - 1 year and 5 months into this ordeal and they've exhausted all of their resources except for beans and monster energy drinks? First of all - that combination is nothing to cheer about and I'd rather be eaten by zombies. And if he has access to bullets that far into the situation, surely there are better food options as well.
I shouldn't be looking so deeply into this at all -
For what it was - a short, simple flash about zombies in a 28 Days Later setting - it was decent.
The mood was good, the sound was good, the animation was good.
Alls I can say is that I hope your next feature is thought through a bit more.
Pretty horrible but the elements are there~
It's a cartoon. That is what matters. I mean, look at that cat try to pick up that penny. He stood on his tippy toes and then just fell like a tree. It's nonsense, sure, but it made me laugh. And the fact that this is over a penny and to purchase gum... however, you can only buy penny gumballs, and you cannot blow bubbles with those. Unless you know of a place where you can buy double bubble for one cent these days :\
Anyway - the cat is so hapless. And even after his great trials, the button doesn't even make him explode with rage.
I like it.
Learn to draw better - learn to animate better - figure out a way to get better sound or time your things to music. Maybe you just did it for shits and giggles. Whatever. Just keep at it if you enjoy it.
It was pretty informative and all...
But how can you possibly create something about the history of animation without talking about Gertie the Dinosaur???
I know, I wanted to talk about him, but he just didn't make the cut :(
Bad grammar, sketchy storyline and the main character doesn't so much run as limp extremely fast.
Start anew with something more thought out. It will most likely turn out better than this.
That was kinda neat...
The style was like, Shag mixed with anime type stuff. It was a pretty unique combination as far as I know and it seemed to work fairly well. I think that you could work on the timing? Everything seemed a little too slow. Anyway - it could be really nifty if you kept at it... for sure your next flash would be better I'd guess. Good luck ~
