A wonder let down by direction and sound

As a checkout operator, I relate to a lot of this stuff, its pritty damn funny. I love the selection of camera angle also, as well as the hand drawn doodle style of the whole thing.

However I really feel this could have been a lot lot better had there'd been more work with sound and direction. The flash is virtually mostly silent, with a few sound effects. Forcably happy "elevator music" like stuff, or perhaps a very quiet shop ambience would have given it a little more depth, without any extra animation work. Story-wise, the flash felt pritty anti-climatic. Whether this is the desired effect or not I dont know, however it would have been awesome if the baby wrestling sketch was the last as the reaction of the bookshop assistant would work as a climax to the flash. The audience relate to the attendant through the toon as he is the only consistent charecter, and to see him avenge his troubles is the highlight of the flash for me, and I'd imagine the audience.

However, these are small worries, and as you can see by the 8 score, I loved this flash. You have probably made the daily five, but if you improve a little, you could be an awesome frontpage artist. Keep at it you.

Thanks, pal... Yeah I considered using muzak in the background. But for some reason, I just never followed through with it. The hum of people shopping is a good idea too. I'll have to look around on the internet for something like that, cuz I don't have a portable sound recorder...

Ha ha, Good job

That was funny, but believe me, anybody who has ever worked in retail will get the jokes.
