The music does not stop at the end of the flash, causing multiple copies of the music to run if replaying the flash.
As for the content, your pacing needs work. Everything is thrown at the viewer far too quickly.
Truely a deep and intriguing insight into the human condition.
Unfinished. Initial sound clip isn't synced.
What needs to be said?
It's not quite as tongue-in-cheek funny as Saturday Morning Watchmen, but it's still a great mix of kids cartoons and Elder Scrolls stuff combined with top notch voice acting and animation.
Reviewing your shit is becoming a chore Harry. It's consistently good.
Hulk telling someone to calm down. Hurr hurr.
Shortcuts taken in animation, but it's a throwaway gag short so it'll do.
BRITISH FLAG THINKS THIS IS GOOD
Even thought the animation is intended for young audiences, I am a sucker for randomness in my cartoons. Monkey gets up to simple hi-jinks, the wand is careful enough to wish him a helmet (When he just wanted a bike) and then we get a fat dose of silly things chasing him.
And a moral. All nicely wrapped up. Assuming you got a good grade for subject matter and, as always, a damn good one for animation quality.
While the situtations can be used to effective comedy, the pacing is simply too slow to keep it up. Coupled with the explainations that practically give away the joke, and the skit doesn't live up to it's potential.
Short and silly is good, but this could've benefited from being even shorter. Jam those jokes into one tight funny package.
Flawed writing, great animation.
While the Bunnykill style translates very well to this samuari setting and the action is fast paced and makes great use of the weapons of the era, there's a rather glaring issue with the ending.
So, spoiler alert, Ruby and Snowball meet in the mission as a sort of "Enemy of my Enemy" pairing, they seem to have no prior meeting or knowledge of one another before this point. This makes Ruby's sacrifice and Snowballs response just seem a bit cliche to me. There's not enough setup to justify that ending and make it seem like something Ruby would do, and how Snowball would react to it.
There was simply not enough explaination of their relationship to warrant what happens. Aside from that, it's a glorious killfest that we've come to expect and love.
What little content there is in this animation is just poor. The graphics look traced from ego's style to a point where they don't like right when in certain positions and the jokes just aren't funny for a lack of relevance.
There's a significant lack of actual animation going on in this short, sequences are reused and bulletholes appear without any kind of bullet going into the wall first.
While the character's look great, it's also taking liberties with the actual scene it's paying homeage to. Why does the Terminator go for 0 casualties and then blow up a guy with a grenade? Where is Sarah and John throughout all this?
While the effects when done right, such as the Terminator getting short, it's let down by animation saving techniques. The rising in the fire has very little change in position or flow, the Terminator gets shot to ribbons before pulling out the pistol, the cops don't shoot back at her in the building after the minigun.
It's a nice short in some places but overall is not that brilliant, a good effort for early work but theres a lot of room for improvement here.
thanks for the input. duly noted.
