Hey, this is a short I made in my animation class. It's supposed to be a sort of public service announcement about creativity, but I really don't care if you get anything out of it...

If you're writing a review, please include the following:
-the quality of the animation (does the motion feel realistic?)
-the timing of the sounds
-the originality of the idea
-the entertainment quality
-what sort of things I could do to make a more impressive video in the future

Thanks to everyone for watching!

Note: occasionally there's a sound glitch in the sound when he hits the skateboard.


'nother Note: The ending might seem a little odd to some. basically, the squeak you hear after the screen fades out means that he makes it to the other side. (I'm not THAT angsty, sheesh.)



Rated 4 / 5 stars


it reminded me of a 3d animation short called kiwi. somtimes the sound is on time and other times it isn't(i 've watched it multiple times) did you compact while saving?

JerrodStorm responds:

I've seen that short too, actually. As for the sound timing, I had no clue that was happening. Thanks for the input.

An uplifting animation!

Great job! While some timing on the sounds would be nice, everything else is spot-on! Also, I really like your choice of music.

I suppose it has to do with creativity because he had to like make a bridge or sum..About the quality of animation it was really good its is realistic and its as good as many other movies ive seen here in newgrounds,Timing of the sounds its ok but when he is about to get on the skateboard its out of sync about 2secs.Originality of the idea well theres nothing much like these here so it would be a 10.Entertainment it was short and didnt really showed the end there was not much to see but it was nice u could have added a better background and some other characthers to help him and develop a story from there.

TIMING 8 because of the out of sync when he rides the skateboard
ENTERTAINMENT 6 Sorry but it was too short

U could add a better scenario a town/forest choose a time period Present day/past and definitely more chars. Use your imagination an inspire yourself from other movies/videogames/books Hell u could even make parodies everybody loves them.Dont give up making movies is always hard.

JerrodStorm responds:

Awesome, thanks for the feedback. I didn't have a lot of time for backgrounds (it was a 2 week in-class project), but I'll definitely keep that in mind, as well as adding more characters. Story development isn't a strong suit of mine, but I'll definitely keep practicing.

again, thanks for your help!

Thumbs up

This is a silly, well-drawn animation. Sound effects went off-track after a bit, though. Keep up the good work.

JerrodStorm responds:

cool thanks. decent sound effects are hard to find sometimes, so my library's still pretty limited.
