The concept of "Birth Day" was odd and I didn't see how it could be considered a new holiday and there wasn't much explanation behind it. I'm also fairly sure your entry also has copyright music.

I guess mine was a bit confusing. While "Birth Day" was the holiday being celebrated, the "new holiday" in mine was the tyrant coming to end their holiday and introduce "death day", the assistant even did a thumbs up to hint at the theme, but i can see how it wouldn't be too apparent, especially with the horrible animatic. It's a lame concept, I know, but it's all I could come up with at the time. If it was actually finished, I'm sure it would have been apparent, but my computer died so I couldn't finish :/. Thanks for the feedback though. And no, there wasn't any copyrighted music in mine, all Royalty Free music: most of it was by Kevin MacLeod, except for one piece by Royalty Free Kings.

I know I made it into the Novice round bracket, but I always appreciate good constructive criticism. If you wouldn't mind, what were your thoughts on my animation? What areas would you have liked to have seen improvement?

Sorry to those I haven't reviewed yet. Things have been kind of hectic with real life. Congratulations to all of the winners by the way!

@ urbfilms - Your concept was good! The biggest weakness of this one was the pacing - it just went on for way too long. The sequence where he's trying to fly out of the bank drags on. The artwork and animation weren't terrible but can also use improvement. When it comes down to it, there were just a lot of highly experienced animators pumping out very high quality entries this year and many other decent ones got pushed out.

Thanks for the feedback! I guess I'll practice a lot this year, and try again next year. I can say that I learned a lot over the last 25 days, and they were VERY worth it! I will try to do the next themes, even though they won't be for judging. Thank you and I hope to see you all next year! :)

Would I be able to get some feedback? If I hadn't lost points for being late would I have gone on?

Well, if we're asking for some feedback on our animations, I wouldn't mind jumping on the bandwagon. :)

Cool stuff guys. Wish I had time to get in on the skype group and that whole thing.

Any who, finished up my Opener round entry and submitted it to the portal. Now everyone who helped with it can finally get the credit they're due. Enjoy...
