Absolutely superb. I don't think I've seen something so in depth and committed in the history of this site.
The sheer quality of your animation is inventive and daring. You haven't shied away from the more difficult angles or style of background with your animation, which a lot of animators can do, especially with such a long animation. It shows commitment, and it allows you to capture the repressive mood of the animation absolutely perfectly.
Despite the very little dialogue, you've managed to subtly reveal a detailed history and strong understanding of the two communities within your movie. It wasn't direct, it didn't have two people sitting around for 5 minutes explaining everything. You took your time and unraveled a imaginative world you've invented.
I adored the music, especially toward the end, it perfectly enhanced the dreary and sinister mood of the movie. Nothing was over the top and it perfectly complimented the characters and environment.
This is the sort of movie and the sort of story I would pay to go and see, and I don't think I've honestly been able to say that about any other animation on this site before.
Furthermore, to anybody who loved this as much as I did. There's a wonderful series of books called Uglies by Scott Westerfeld that approach a same subject. Pretty city and sinister motive behind those who run it. It's a bit teeny, but it's a good series.
Anyway, enough of that... phenomenal work, I want to see more.
It's quite rare to find a parody movie animated to such effort and talent as yours is. The frame by frame work of the bear was wonderful, very fluent and easy on the eyes.
I physically cannot stand how catchy this is
Effortlessly enjoyable. A cute, quirky Halloween animation. Top work.
I really enjoyed this, a deserved winner of the little competition. You really took it to a different style, distancing yourself from the obvious "Oh, make a clown die in some ironic circus trick" route.
The style was superb. Absolutely creepy and visually exciting. The subtle, chalky background worked well with all your frame by frame and apparent lifelessness atmosphere of the animation. The frame by frame work was fluent and interesting, you took on a number of difficult and different angles in this.
I loved the bear... that was a laugh. Something that small really made up the hilarity of the animation, and further emphasized on the circus theme, as it was easy to forget about it from the eeriness of the piece at the beginning.
Great work, congratulations.
I thought this was great
You've created a quality 3D racing game here. It reminds me painfully of old school driving games that you occasionally see in old arcades, mind you, but it was wonderful.
You've done some amazing 3D work here. The quality of the game looked pretty decent for a Flash Browser game. It was quite basic, but that's all that was required to make the game workable and not too distracting or too big.
The sound and music tracks were great and once again, incorporated this old arcade racing game feel to your game.
The only negative side, which I'm sure will have already been mentioned was the sensitivity of the steering. I understand drifting is hard, but you shouldn't be able to do a 180 degree spin in a 2m diameter.
Besides that, good work.
This could have been great...
It wasn't horrible... it was a huge let down. It started up and I thought to myself "The voice acting is pretty shit, but it has some heart, so that's rare to see on this site".
It was horribly animated. Just a sketched line here and there to complete some half-assed pictures. There's nothing wrong with completing a scene like this, but why didn't you put just the slightest more effort into it.
Your droning, annoying voice absolutely killed any passion and emotion you tried to display... I can't see this as a tragic story about your love life, rather than the bitchy ranting of a teenager.
This wouldn't annoy me as much if it didn't have so much potential... and that's why I hate this so much, it's just a waste of something much better you could have done.
I've always loved these
God damn it. Each one is always incredibly clever.
You take the easily animated stick figure and throw it into a world of nostalgia of old computer programs. You've done well to turn damn near everything into a possible weapon and left absolutely nothing unturned in regards to destruction.
There's hardly any story to this other than a pissed off stick figure and a crafty computer animator, but you've managed to wrap up this trilogy quite nicely.
It's a shame there will be no more of these, but it's nice knowing you're not whoring yourself out with these.
Could have been better
I'm sure some kids just sit around and think "TV sucks, I'll go do an animation", but most of the time it comes on a little differently than that. I noticed the picture of Tom Fulp (who couldn't notice that beast?), so you could have led up to the fact that the kid was obsessed with the website/animating a little better.
I'm not sure what 'GoAnimate' is, but I gather it's just another easy-to-do animation program. Either way, the joke worked for me as I'm used to seeing so many similar sorts of animations on Newgrounds itself.
I've noticed in a few animations you're great at controlling a characters body (to an extent), mainly the arms. They were fluent for the few seconds of usage in this animation and I'm not sure why you didn't follow through with that throughout your whole animation. Oh well.
Decent joke. Animation could have been a little better.
I really liked this
I thought it was just going to be another stick figure dance routine. But then I saw it morphed into your username and was impressed.
The stick figure was very fluent, mind you, that's not very difficult to do with a stick figure. It seemed to stay true to the movements of a break-dancer, though did seem a little too fast during a few of the spins.
The morphing into your name was great. Clever and fluent, and the text design of the name looked superb. This would be a high quality opener for any animation you might make in the future.
If this is one your first attempts at animating then you're going to do some seriously good things later down the line. I'm willing to bet on it.
The reason I say this is that you've really honed in on some vital effects that really make up a quality animation. Rushing effects, difficult angles, shaking effects, and other pieces here and there that are essential to creating any animation that requires movement. This sort of grasp on movement and animating usually takes a little while for a new animator to pick up. I personally suck at it.
It would have been nice to see a little more frame by frame work from yourself. The characters and sketches felt rooted into place and made the animation feel more like an interactive comic book than a fight scene.
The only advice I can offer is to keep going. Make mistakes and learn from them. You've avoided the normal path of making shitty stick figure fights like most flash artists do at their beginnings and have created something that shows that you have some real talent lurking within.
I won't be surprised if I see you owning the weekly awards one day. Keep it up.
Hey, thanks bro. knowing people have confidence in me, makes me confident. ^^
And you really flatter me when you say i might own at the Weekly Awards. But let's not try to get ahead of the present, well see what happens in time.
