It was really well made, except just for a few things which bothered me. I'll start with the good, though, since I uh, totally enjoy ending comments on negative notes, I guess.
I liked how the narration went on, with seamless transitions from one scene to another, and especially the music that went along with it. I really liked how the general tune of the music was the same, but by using different instruments and different effects, it drastically changed the mood, and fir in perfectly with the scenes. I also noticed how you didn't just use perhaps, violins and an upbeat tempo to perform the same tune in the police chase, because that would have been overdone, when I think about it. The plot was beautifully done as well, from the discovery of his speed, to winning the races, to literally 'falling' in love, until the lost race, to the drinking binge, to jail, and especially the nostalgic end.
Looking back, after having watched this 3 times, I sorta wish there was more to the story, between the marriage and the new race, and something about the "twenty years later" timespan, but that's only a desire for more, since it was so well done, and had there been more, it would have ruined the movie, most likely.
Er, however, the things that bothered me are here:
The voices, as a few people have said before, were, well, quite unsuitable. It wasn't too much of a bother, as it was only the intro which was like that, which can scarcely be considered part of the true film.
What I really disliked though, very strongly, was the comical explosion at the end. I'm not exactly sure what effect you were going for, but the comical fiery explosion as the abrupt end of an emotional scene did seem to entertain the masses, who are more important than the few who disliked it, because well, we're outnumbered.
But this really did ruin the ending, because the plot was so gripping and it did actually make me sad, and when the bus driver stopped, a reminder of the beginning, it added even more emotion to the ending. It would have been fine to stop there, but then there was a comical explosion abruptly ending it, followed by eccentric and quirky music in the credits.
It truly ruined the film for me.
But uh, that's enough of that. everything else has already been said, I s'pose.
I really liked this
It really had a lot of meaning to it.. I liked the metaphors you used. I don't think I've ever seen anything like this.
A lot of your other works have deep meanings, but none like this. Great job.
Twisted, but very happy..
I liked it! :D
3 years later this flash is still awesome. I wish there were more collabs like this.
If you're around you should make a 20th anniversary one in 6 years. hehe.
I remember reading about this somewhere. Some guy philisiphied that if you taped buttered toast to a cat, it would just hover above the ground.
I can't remember his name though.
Well, good job on this, even though you didn't really animate it.
the best comclusion to the best series ever.
Excellent job. I know there was a whole team of animators working with you, but this was the best ending. I love how everyone worked together to allow him to get to the airport. The ending was nice too, how you went full circle with this story. It all started at the vending machine, and that's where it ended. The only way it could be better was if it were longer, but that could be said about everything.
I hope to see another good series starting to come out sometime next year. Or at least another good short. These 5 years were awesome.
good, but i just didnt like some things about it
for one, the sound effects were a little annoying, because they didnt fit in. like the bashing his fists on the ground, or the briefcase closing, or his humming. i just felt like the sounds would be better for other situations. but i know how hard it is finding a decent sound clip or recording with a bad mic, so you still get credit anyway
the fbf was really good too; i would never have the patience for that. but some of the movements were ... odd. the speed or, ease was off.
but it would be extremely annoying to redraw it so it turns out good, i guess.
good job overall, and i hope you find a new screening club soon ;)
cheers mate, thanks for the feedback... I'm hoping to pressure them into starting up again with the screening next year.
5 months too early.
not too great.
How great it must be ?
good for a start
ill leave the problems about the crappy art alone
just going into technical/storyline issues now
first, the mouse is hard as hell to control
set the tip of the Z to be the pointer area, not the center, bcause that makes it difficult to click the small buttons
also, why did sonic just leave the ball there and run to the fight scene
also, why did whatsisface.. goku? say that vegeta was his dear friend when.. yeah..
also, you deleted the mouse mc on the 'the end' frame so the mouse disappeared...
just pointing those out for now
your animation will improve as you work on these more, and your storyline should too, if not from practice, then from criticism you get in your reviews
but he never got to read the friends book...
