"Chasing Comets in my Garage" song by REASONER

I started a year and a half ago on Comet when Reasoner was looking for a music video to be created for a song from his album. Being a huge fan of his work, I was excited to help out. It ended up more ambitious than I imagined and eventualy I teamed up with Jazza. I'm hugely thankful to him for making this project possible at the quality I was aiming for.

Merry Christmas!

Flawless

This submission was just mind-blowing in every way!
The animation is great, it has nice detaill and it keeps stable withouth looking ridiculous at any moment. The lightning looked pretty well made and the backgrounds were very damn good.
The choice of music is wonderfull, it's great and it fits right in (Something that's normal since this is a video made for that song)
The film was extremely interesing to watch all the way through, you never feel like you're starting at some pointless moment and i just love it when more than 1 thing on the screen is moving at the same time. Like apart from the main part where you should be focusing there's something else happening right on the screen that you can watch, and it would still keep you entertained (The best example for this would be the Bunnykill series).
The ending pretty much took out the fantastic aspect but still left some space over to the emotional part. In my opinion, it was a pretty good ending.
It was fun seeing everything coming back to life at the beggining, the lights turnin up, the kid flying on his bike, the giant astronaut, the alien... Every moment of the movie is made to keep you entertained, and it surely got to it's objective.
I have to say, congratulations in this one. Chances are it might win to movie of the year. And if it doesn't wins, it's for sure that'll be the winner of best of the week and atleast a nominated for best of the year. I feel like submissions like this are starting to dissapear, and while it's fun to watch action films i'm really starting to miss these kind of flashes. Job well done.

alright

Begining: Auuggghhh this better not be one of those fucking "emotional" flash movies, if it is im giving it a tops 7...

Middle:okay, Why does the kid walk like a deathclaw from fallout? What kind of... seemingly.... 10 year old boy goes and rides his bike out in the street? I'm guessing he's dreaming but rlly? and where's freddy Khuger?XD, Alrite wtf? an alien.....with a cape? give him some damn clothes!

End: Okay, is it just me? or does the astronauts arms look flimsy for some reason? Those asteroids look like they're made of metal, i think i even see some glare on them! Music, music , music, tsk tsk, it sounds pretty fresh at begining, but gets boring, at least has something that keeps a beat with whats happening in the flash, arts decent at least, i giv you 8, pretty ok light decal too.

visually its pretty much perfect

first off, wow, those backgrounds were fucking beautiful, especially the christmas lights that came to life; it's not often you get flash animations that have so much detail put into the lighting aspect

i've got to nitpick a few things though. i don't think the flash should have turned out to be the kid's fantasy/dream. something that's annoyed me recently about a lot of cartoons is that the cartoonish and fantastic aspects of them turn out to be a hallucination, a dream, or a drug trip. it's not only an easy 'cop out' ending, but it sort of takes away from the fact that it's a cartoon in the first place. personally i think the story would have been stronger if you based it around the city with the boy encountering the neon lights, rather than taking it to the outer space setting. a few things seemed shoe-horned in as well, like the alien for example - i think he was just there so the cartoon could have a tangible antagonist.

aside from that, everything else was great (especially the shots/framing), the sequences fit well with the music etc etc etc, i just wish more of the cartoon was like the first minute or so instead of a space adventure
