So fucking good. I want to see your movies in theaters RIGHT NOW.
My criticisms: the narration. I was so caught up in the amazing animation and art, it felt like the rhymes were echoing behind a veil, but then again I was hearing such beautiful poetic verses that I needed to watch it again, so even then that isn't such a bad thing. Just confusing at first, for the eyes and ears to experience two incredible sets of beauty at the same time.
That, and the voice of the narrator. Maybe this is what causes my confusion? Just didn't seem to fit the character for me. Would have liked to hear a stronger voice pulling everything together.
That's it. Over all, it was superb storytelling and direction. Congratulations to everyone involved in this project!
My main irk would be that your lip syncing during the yelling parts seems a little off and the scene doesn't come across as funny for that reason.
Glad I could contribute, emily, thank yous
and yes your lines have gotten smoother, especially on Aaron's face when he starts to frown, keep it up! although I still like the look of your nonsmoother lines as well
yes this is andres
None of this reminded me of Egoraptor. It reminded me of psychicpebbles at the most. Having said that, I felt that it had potential to be something very funny, but it was awkward for me to watch. Awkward in a sense that, I knew where it was trying to go with the comedy, and I couldn't shake that feeling. You can improve on your "blur" techniques, which aren't TOO bad to begin with, your lip-syncing, and overall exaggeration of emotions and drawings. And really use your imagination/influences to come up with some hilarious shit. You're on the right track, I can tell. All those little details (Twilight spitting when she says "Spike", changing facial expressions, etc.) Just.. exaggerate more. Considering that's what you like in other animations.
Something you did with a camera transition bothered me. When Pinkie Pie was standing near Spike's dead body. You changed her position from the left side of the screen to the right, without a clear connection to that new perspective. It breaks the continuity a bit, and it's just something you should be aware of.
Voices were good quality, but Pinkie Pie and Twilight had no difference in tone, which took the funny away for me.
Leaving on a good note, I'll say that I liked Celestia's small bit towards the end. That was good, and I sincerely giggled from it because of the timing, specifically when she took a breath, made that fucking face, then continued laughing. That was funny. Hang on to that aspect. |
I hope this helps.
This is fantastic!
Awesome, too! LOVED the effort you put into the animation! My God, if only all cartoons could be as wonderfully conducted as this! This oozes nostalgia! It's like I've gone back in time and am actually entertained by something! Brilliant!
Reminds me of Silent Hill.
But maybe that's just because I've been playing Silent Hill recently..
I loved the music. That's Silent Hill-ish, too!
Overall, it's a nice emotional story. Kinda like Silent Hill.
