I would have made What 1/2 and What 2/2 into 1 video but some...technical difficulties came up. I did all the voices because Noah couldn't make it, and I have the most beautiful voice in the world. Everyone knows that.
Please enjoy! Seriously. Enjoy it. Do it. I know where you live.

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

looks like your ripping off explosim

cause your trying to rip off explosim. And they're already ripping off other people. Get your own shtick.

HatGuy responds:

Well they like many others use an extremely common type of stick figure, and you shouldn't let this lower your opinion of it as much as it did.

Pretty good

This was very funny, though the voice acting could use a lot of work. Your animation was pretty fluid. An overall 7/10.

There's rust on this Ferrari

The room for improvement here is as vast as the Saskatchewan praries, but I feel that you have some of the basic points of a good animation down. Let me clarify.

ANIMATION - Raise the FPS from 12 to somewhere around 20 or 30. This means more animating, but good animations require this. Your backgrounds for each scene shouldn't be made with solely the square and circle tool; actually spend some time on it and make it look pretty. You can make some nice looking BG's in about 15 - 30 minutes. It's time spent towards a good animation. Your character movement and lipsync, however, are on their way to perfection. Lipsync is only a tiny bit off, and your frame by frame animations are fluid enough to look all right.

SOUND - Quality is dreadful. In your next animation, please remove those "Music Bumpers" because they are extremely annoying. Voice acting is awful. A young voice actor doesn't have to try and sound so monotone, use more emotion. This should be the easiest part of the whole Flash. Next time, try to keep the Background noise of the microphone to a minimum. Also, as a side note, are the sidewalks of that city made of Wood?

WRITING - The strongest point of this Flash. Obviously this is intended to be humorous so the story down to earth isn't very important in a movie like this. Some of the jokes actually worked fairly well whilst the other ones just seem overused. Try to make the buildup to the punchlines more lengthy; throw in more conversation when they talk to each other. When revising your next film, think to yourself "Is this quite original or is this highly cliched for this type of setting?" As an example, if you have a scene where people are sitting in the car, and the driver says "I can't drive" then that is a very predictable joke and the next thing the audience expects is a crash.

OVERALL - Not a very good Flash, but it has some shining moments. Like I said before; There's rust on this Ferrari.

Thanks for the advice dude.
Yeah, the backgrounds I admit could have been a lot better. I don't know what I was thinking for the FPS. I'll higher it for What 2/2. The lip syncing just a bit off, because it wasn't until about 50 seconds into it I realized to record the voice BEFORE I animate the mouth. Big mistake there.
Yeah I didn't like the music bumpers much, but I thought it was missing something with out music. I use a laptop, and makes so much noise with the fan and all its hard not to hear any ambient computer noises. Couldn't find good sound effects, either.
Yeah, we put a lot into the story, although I don't like the idea that Noah will have to be a cripple for what 2/2. All for the plot I guess.

Very funny

This was freaking hilarious. The dart board scene of 7 months, the guy going "but sir, this is a fruit stand!'... lots of funny moments. As to the voices: well, in the intro, just edit in a line that they are twin brothers or something, so that the similar voices make sense.

HatGuy responds:

Thanks a lot dude I didn't think anyone would like this so much. But honestly I din't think this deserves a 10. To be realistic it really in my opinion deserves a.....4 maybe.
