"Oh, the poor pirates, lost at sea,
they lost their most valuable treasure: their sanity!"

Hey, everyone! This idea was originally for Time Trial IX, but, due to other obligations, I was unable to start working on it until this weekend.

Hope you enjoy! I respond to all reviews, so please leave one.

If you don't understand the story, read below...
*** Front page! Thanks a lot, guys!

It means a lot! Too cool! ***

Basically, these guys have been at sea for a few months, and they're all getting cabin fever, so when one of them sees a group of seals, he mistakes them for mermaids, and everyone else begins to see them, too.

Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming response... I really appreciate it.

Wakka wakka. :)

Damn shame you didn't finish in time

A lot of people dropped out of TTIX it seemed. Anyways, excellent job :)

P.S. Those seals sure are sexy :)

Ha ha! I didn't even *start* until midnight of April 17th... there was no "dropping out;" I completely missed the contest. :P

But, I digress... I like how it turned out, and the other stuff I had going was more important (school, job resumes - small stuff, right?).

Thanks for the review!

Pretty funny movie.

I liked this movie. The sounds were well done. I enjoyed the background music, the voices, and the sound effects. Another thing that was good about this was the actual people. They weren't stick figures and were drawn rather well. The movie gave me a good chuckle and the great thing about it is it was actually historical :). The only down side was that it was too short... but then again that kind of worked towards the movies advantage. All in all this was a quality movie and one of the best I've seen all day.

SketchMichaels responds:

Thanks a lot, man. I appreciate the kind words :)

That was brilliant! I liked it a lot, I have myself participated to the TT too, but got refused, so I submitted on my own, it's called "Pirate's Tale" if you want to check it out.
Yours was so fun. And it had some humor in it, which is cool. The animation was smooth and without doubt, very nice to look at. The plot was well searched, I liked the voice and the "old talking", as much as the other pirat's expression.
Overall, a very good short.
Keep it up!

SketchMichaels responds:

Thanks, man. Yeah, I saw yours, pretty nifty piece, though I wasn't too keen on the music til the end (though, in retrospect, the closer's the most important anyway :) )

Thanks for reviewing.
