This is a fun little animation I did using The White Stripes song we're going to be friends.

Hope you enjoy it!

A great short film about a girl...

and a robot! Just like the title said. Yay for truth in advertising! #;-}> To tell the truth, the tone of some of the shots in this and the friendship between the girl and the robot kinda reminded me of Iron Giant (only without the sad ending... and with a girl instead of a boy... and with an adult-human-sized robot instead of a huge giant robot...). That's meant as a compliment, BTW!

I loved a lot of the little touches, such as the reaction of the other kids as the girl and the robot walked by outside or at the school... the robot's face was wonderfully expressive (in some ways moreso than the girl's, in fact! She seemed to only be curious/serious, happy, or INSANELY happy. heh). In any event, it's quite a pair of characters you've made, and I was glad you put a good supporting cast around them (the teacher, the other kids, the dude with the camera). A lot of people make short simple flashes and then isolate their main characters... you, on the other hand, painted a world that feels REAL around them. That's a great way of enhancing the experience for the viewer, and you did it VERY well. Oh, and my favourite part of the whole thing was the robot planning to jump over the fence but crashing through it instead. Heh.

Anyway, the song went well with all the little touches in the story... (I'd never heard that specific White Stripes song before, so thanks for that, too)... and the visuals were damned good! I liked the simple hair and clothes and faces but rich and colourful backgrounds and objects and so forth. Very rich and rewarding style, IMO. Very well done. I'd love to see more short music videos like this. You've got a great spirit of adventure and quirky style.

Very nice

I don't agree with the previous poster, I think art *is* your strong point. I think it's very stylistic and it goes perfect with the movie. You get a perfect ten from me.

Cute

I like the concept of making new friends. The animation and artwork could have been done better, but overall a good flash. Keep working to do your best.

meh

hmm...ok?
visually it was
rough around the
edges...music was
fitting, though the
concept wasnt that
entertaining or creative.
overall it was a light
hearted cartoon, but
boring and monotonous.
score: **
