Good graphics, but not such a good "trailer"
I think as a trailer, this could have perhaps been more informative. Trailers should seek to inform the viewer about the characters, themes and plot contained within a story. As far as I can tell, this does not. All it really tells the viewer is that Fibble becomes cursed with Sin, and chaos ensues.
The viewer isn't shown show much about any of the other characters that you mentioned in the description "dolatry, Skitzo the 1920's killer bear, Promiscuous, Anxiety, and Suicide." I think this is a missed opportunity.
If you introduce these characters, and perhaps included more specifics about the story, then I think the trailer would be more successful. Currently it just looks more like a montage of action scenes.
Good job on the animation and drawing though, I look forward to the series.
"All it really tells the viewer is that Fibble becomes cursed with Sin, and chaos ensues." <--this is probably the best way to sum up the series haha. The bigger story is in the comic book, while the episodes are more like closed short stories with no connection between episodes. Still you have a point I didn't explain the other characters and I thought about doing a slower trailer with a narrator and stuff...but it was all too much to try to cover in one minute because each one has a history. So I opted for a link at the end to visit my DA page. That way any curious people who wanted to know more could click it and get all the info the trailer left out. Oh well, I tried haha. Thanks for watching the trailer anyways! :)
That was a really well told story. I liked the animation style and thought that the music was pretty fitting.
I also appreciate the title, but have you considered turning it into a question, i.e "Time to Play?". I think this would make the idea more obvious: have you actually got any time to play? etc.
Something did seem a little odd with the other robots though. The colour palette and mood we're both quite cool and the music was as well to a certain extent. I was expecting some slightly darker moments. I was expecting some sort of confrontation between the two at some point.
Finally, i'm just curious, do the robots know they only have an hour to live?
When I first thought of the idea, I wasn't sure whether or not the robots should know how long they have to live or not. I experimented with the thought and decided it would be better if they didn't know.
That was awesome indeed my friend (i'm a frickin huge Lady Gaga fan)
I don't think i've seen any of your other animations so I don't know if it's just a style thing, but the animation seemed pretty glitchy in places. If this was intentional then theres no need to fix it obviously. Also it didn't really detract from my enjoyment in anyway, It's just my attempt at saying something constructive.
But you wouldn't believe how much it made me smile when I realised you'd picked up on the Hitchcock references :D
Wow, i'm not usually a fan of sprites, but this one is pretty special. The action feels really intense because of the close up camera used, great job.
I look forward to seeing the sequel.
I hadn't seen the first episode so I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was really, really great. You've done a really good job with this, it definitely shows you spent a lot of time on this.
I know that some criticism would be useful but I can't think of anything.
Keep it up, I look forward to seeing more from you :D
thanks mate! glad you enjoyed.
This is a very impressive first submission. I really like some of the shots that you have in the flash , especially the black/red one near the start when josh impales the guard with his spear.
The plot seems very intriguing, i'm wondering why you had so many shots of the moon?
Thanks for going through the effort to put in English subtitles, I look forward to seeing more from you.
Keep it up :D
Well i quite like it, this isn't so much going to be a review but a train of thought. To start with it seemed pretty funky cause the dude was walking in time with the music, and the axe hit that green guy in the face in time with the music which was pretty sweet, but then the music stopped?
The drawing was fine, slightly boring though. Some more colour would have helped.
Also a bit more plot would be cool. Cause currently all that happens is 3 people we know nothing about die violently. So maybe add some more plot to your next flash?
Keep it up though :D
Thnanks also for your train of thought yes i did notice the sound messing up i did say about this in the description but yes i do need to add a story i was just kinda making sure people liked it before going to the trouble of making a 5 min long flash ^^
P.S no the music was not meant to stop
I like the graphics style of the set and was actually really looking forward to the animation , it all looked and sounded great , until the arrival of the stick man. I understand that it's much harder to draw real people but i think for me to feel anything for a character they need to have a face , a face that i can see smile and cry etc.
i find it incredibly hard to emotionally attach myself to stick characters and given that this isn't an action story etc. i think emotional attachment from the person watching is gonna be really important and to get people to care about stick characters is gonna be really hard :(
not quite sure how your going to solve this problem
A very entertaining film. Overall i think you did a good job with the animation , over all design , style , audio and well , just about everything.
The only thing missing for me , was a bit of plot or story , I wanted to know who the two main characters were and what their history was with each other , i'm assuming that they have history cause the green guy seems to recognize the pilot. Also , what was the station that they were destroying , a prison , factory , base , or whatever. I don't quite now how you would fill that backstory in though.
However , what you have currently is a great piece of entertainment. But in my opinion in order to move it beyond just entertainment you need to incorporate more story telling techniques. But this is just my opinion. Good job ;)
