...a preloader! :D Other than that, it was cute and enjoyable. Nice style. I like the work you put into the backgrounds. *applauds*
Overall, I liked it.
...if everyone has missed the sarcasm in your description. I have a sneaking suspicion that they have.
It's come to my attention that quite a few people actually -aim- to get the Turd of the Week award, since it does give one a certain level of notoriety and 15 minutes of fame. Perhaps that was the intention here.
I like it! I'm biased though, because I'm a huge Jason Mraz fan, and have been for years now.
Animation was cool, except it fuzzy and compressed. Also, the audio was strange -- did you transpose it and make the key higher? It's definitely about one step higher than the original recording, and it kinda threw me off (just because I'm a musician).
Anyways, it was pretty sweet! I wish it had been the full song, though! :D
I laughed super hard.
Awesome job! I thought it was hysterical--I was grinning the whole way thru, especially during the singing part. Epic.
Really funny stuff. The animation was a little lackluster, but I still thought it was funny, so whatever. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with in the future!! :D
...but also kinda cool. I lol'd especially at Mario and what he tried to do with the hose.... YIPPEE!
Cool stuff. I look forward to seeing how crazy your animations could become because I love that stuff :D also, kudos to you for drawing it frame by frame. Looks like it's 24fps -- did you animate on 1s or 2s?
You can do better.
I hate reading random bitter nasty reviews, so I sure as hell won't write one. I'm gonna try to offer some real critique, since I figure that's why you've posted this publicly.
This wasn't very original at all. Obviously that's not what you were going for, but still... there's already a huge number of shoddy video game related movies and parodies out there, and I'm so desperately craving originality! You're obviously a creative person, so use those talents to come up with a totally new scenario and world for your characters. If you do that, you're already a step above most flash animators out there.
The animation was pretty bad, because there really wasn't any animation at all. The turtle sprite looked exactly the same through the whole animation and the movement was extremely unnatural. The eyes never blinked, they just were instantly closed and then open again, and the tweened motion through the whole flash made my soul ache. Please... please practice real animation. You can't just take a single drawing and move it around the screen--it's easy to do in flash, but it also looks terrible. :(
The sounds were all pretty uninspired. The music was okay I guess, but the voice acting was very underwhelming and conveyed no sense of the character's personality. Even a boring character should have an interesting voice that capture's the listener's ear.
I really hate to be so negative, but again--I'm just trying to take the time to be honest since you took the time to make an entire animation and submit it to the public. Please practice true animation, create original scenes and scenarios, and maybe think about finding willing voice over artists who want to work on your projects. (there are plenty to find on the internet!!) Keep working and improving and you'll get there.
...I wish I could like this more than I do. The song was cool, but very distorted and low quality. You might want to compress it less. It makes the file bigger, but since this is a music video, you want the music to sound awesome. It's worth it!
The art is nice--I can tell you're talented--but, it just seemed a little lackluster. It could have been a bit more exciting, but she was just standing there holding the mic while kinda moving her mouth. The rest of the animation hinted at a story, and something interesting, but you didn't really let us in and give us enough information. It was a bit too vague.
That being said, it was still a cool video and I'd like to see more of what you can do. Color me intrigued! :D
I'm really sorry about the bad sound, that's the best quality that flash can import :/
Great voice acting, and I loved the visual style. I thought it was hysterical. Funny and creative ... can't wait to see more of the characters!
Made me smile. Could have used some music, and I don't see why you couldn't have spent a little more time on the visuals, since the video was so short. Could be better, but still pretty good nonetheless!
One thing i've learned while at school: you can always work more on a project, nothing is ever really done, but when the deadline hits... you just gotta go with it.
Funny as hell. Made me LOL. What more can I say? Music was funny and fit the scene ... the art was imperfect, and yet, so perfect ... and of course, IT WAS JUST LIKE ONE OF MY JAPANESE ANIMES! ...great job all the way around.
Oh yeah, and boobs are cool.
