This is a 30 second spoof of the 10 minute opening of the movie Serenity, based on the TV show Firefly by Joss Whedon which was canceled after 14 episodes (one of television's greatest tragedies). I made this for my animation class. The only rule was to make it exactly 30 seconds, which I did. It's 29 seconds of animation, then it shows the title for 1 second before showing the replay button.

UPDATE: I added a play button. Don't know what I was thinking before.



Rated 4 / 5 stars


Looks pretty good. Plus Firefly humor always equals win. :)

Good stuff.

It should have been faster, at least until the conversation between the two at the end. When you zoom out into each new perspective, the line should come really fast, and then you immediately go to the next one. Almost to the point of us having to try and keep up. (And if that means you have less than 30 seconds, then you should come up with even more perspectives to add to it until you have enough.)

The voices were also a little... harsh, I guess? Maybe some kind of subtle background music would have helped.

I know what you mean. I guess I'm glad I made it as fast as I did, since it was slower at first until I edited it. I was going for that making the viewer have to keep up effect like you described. But I didn't want anyone to miss anything I had drawn, and I didn't wanna cut off any of the lip syncing I had worked at. Not that this is a masterpiece to behold or anything.

I was worried about the lack of music, but I was taking a minimalist approach. I almost got away without any sound effects even.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
