Note: I've updated my flash audio, with hopefully smoother audio and less static. Hopefully this helps. Thanks for letting me know! :)
"Just Gus" represents my second flash movie.

It was originally meant as a 10 second clip for the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS)' "Chicken Jam," but ended up 1 minute 30 or so seconds. So, with much savagery I hacked and slashed this here big file to fit in a 10 second clip (the 10 second clip actually turned out good, with new phrases (?) and an eerie song (?); to view just visit http://www.clockknockprod ip.htm).

So, a lesson for all humanity? From chickens? Hmmm. Impossible!

Oh, and you might notice the simple intro page (pirate saying "ire" and another fella saying "my rib"). I know, ugh. Well, I'm really bad at logos but I'll try to spiff one up for all future submissions.


P.S. Regarding the song choice, I had no idea till I came upon a fella whose pregnant girlfriend gave him her top 5 birthing songs ("Ring of Fire" came fifth, and I thought it worked well with the characters).

Confused much?

Hey, good job with your transitions between characters. You could have made the chickens move back in forth, nothing stands still in real life-but hey, this might be your style. The audio was perfect, I understood what they were saying, but maybe slow down what the chicken on the right was saying about the hair/feather loss. I was confused about the whole plot, it must have had something else? Is it a sequel? Lemme know.

GJ 7/10-10/10=Less confusion, maybe put a transition between episodes like this, "Last time on Just Gus."

Thanks Lord1! And audio perfect? Sweet, although I know I can make a few tweaks (like furthering the mic from mouth when recording). And characters standing still is not necessarily my style, just thought it best for 2 days animating. Upcoming animatinos will have much more action, with explosions! Sorry about any confusion (Gus was just saying how the food/water was causing ticks, rashes, etc.). A sequel? Hmmm... If Gus survives, that is... :p)

Unsure what it was saying..


The animation was good. I'm assuming the story was good too, because it looked like it was heightened properly. I just have no idea what they were saying. The audio quality was very poor. Maybe it's my terrible hearing, but I really had no clue what was being said.

Looks like a good animation. 5/10 because of the poor audio.
