Music video to You Know my Name

When you're in the deadly game of counter-espionage, every action counts. You need a cool head and the ability to think on your feet. What you don't need is a scruffy, quirky rookie as your back-up.

Not bad at all

That was pretty decent. I've watched your "Pet Cemetery" video (which exceeded my expectations) and came here to see how much you've improve . Quite a bit actually, the art and animation is definitely much nicer here.

How ever, I do see have some suggestions, which you may not like:

Music: I can see why you've chosen it, but I don't believe it works here. The movie just doesn't match up with the song's pace. The characters and scenes move by slowly, and there's not much action (even the fighting is rather slow). Music that doesn't belong can really ruin a scene. Having the music and animation in sync is one of the most important, if not the most important aspect of a music video.

Personally, I think a smooth jazz song would fit better. But that's just my opinion.

Art: I think it'd be better for you as an artist and an author if you were to change the style. By that, I mean not drawing in the HTF style. I think it's holding you back, and it's hard to take the characters seriously. If you were to draw this in your own style. it would look much better, and more your own instead of a cheap fan video (I'm not saying it is, I'm saying it looks like it).

Look at the top best videos and try to imagine what it'd be like if the characters were all Sonic recolors. Not as impressive, is it?

I do like how the rookie spy is drawn though, as he looks more unique.

The animation isn't bad, though a little stiff. I'm especially impressed by the knife twirling.

To end this on a positive note, I really liked the fight scene. My favorite part was when the rookie used a corpse to catch them off guard. Pretty clever of him. I also liked how he kept screwing up with the knife-twirling (which was pretty funny to watch), but mastered it by the end.

I'm probably missing somethings, but this is getting too long as it it. I believe you can make some awesome videos someday, just keep at it. : )

Fun to watch

As it is a music video, i suppose music is the topic to be discussed first
I love the song, especially the movie Casino Royale, and apart from that specific line of 'you know my name', i really don't understand the purpose behind choosing that song. I liked the idea of a spy getting reputation and i can definitely see the parallels to the movie and this. If i were given that animation and asked to choose a song for it, i probably would choose that one, but given that song, i wouldn't make that animation

Animation
Animation was smooth, colors were nice, but not overly exciting
It was pretty cool watching the slow improvement of the switchblade flipping

Great!

Great flash!. Has a fairly neat storyline to it. Good for the music video though.
A problem I noticed was some parts of the flash were cut off due to the screen size. I am not a animator so I don't know if that's an issue or you ment to do that.
Pretty good though!
cheers

IT'S CHRIS CORNELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With an "r" anyway, nce try at the agent thing. I thought a lot more could've been done with the action scenes though.
