It's just another day in the office for Frank, but Carl calls up with some good news to put Frank in the holiday spirit.

As a short this is concise, to the point and drawn out with some lovely animation, artwork and music. The music especially fits in well and mingles nicely with the artwork which in itself; is nice and simple looking but with a touch of detail.
The story is a simple context, but it touches on the heart with its premise; a man seemingly finds a book that his friend has been searching for.
Highly well done, this is an enjoyable Christmas short that may get you in the spirit when you watch it around Christmas time.


ConAir responds:

Well thank you! I'm glad you understood the premise, and you could guess how disappointed I was when I couldn't finish it before Christmas. Thanks for the great review!

Nice style but don't get it

I don't get the point of this other than he's happy about it and stunned but sorta left opened ended, otherwise I'd have shot you higher. YES! longer isn't always better. Keep it up.

ConAir responds:

I figured this would be way over some people's heads but I explain it in my latest news post so check that out if you get a chance, it would be very appreciated. There's not a whole lot to these movies, just to make you think a little bit and laugh over something small. Thanks for the very reasonable review!

Loved the style and animation, but i really wish you would show off and make it longer!

ConAir responds:

My dear, dear boy. Only so much can be done with an idea like this, and adding anything else would really lessen the impact of what I'm trying to convey...but that's just artist talk. Thanks for the review!

Great animation and I love that you added music by John Williams. The only problem was that the sound effects were really loud compared to the music. When Frank spit out his coffee, he startled me. lol

ConAir responds:

Thank you! Yeah I'm working on a macbook with a built in mic so it's kind of hard to gauge coming out of laptop speakers...but If the coffee spit out startled you then I guess I'm doin' ma job!

not bad

Not bad, everything was perfect, just needs to be longer other then that it was cute and amusing so good job.

ConAir responds:

Thanks for the review, but longer doesn't always mean better...unless we're talking about dicks and shit and I really don't think that's the case.
