"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!

Beautiful!

Very, very, imaginative, Great music, 5/5, favorite, 10/10, facebook like,
And GREAT job. Looked like a very nice little boy. And the astronaut helping the boy made me feel good. This was a VERY GOOD submission, and it deserved it's score.
( 4.53 / 5.00. Actually, it deserves even more then THAT. )

Very nice.

To Greg (Zeedox): Great work on the direction, and it's nice of you to expand your horizons.

To Josiah (Jazza): This is the best thing that you have done.

To Reasoner: I normally don't check out the Audio Portal very often, but what you had was good.

Graphics: They were well-drawn with some clever usage of gradients, and the animation was for the most part, great. However, in one instance, that boy's arms looked rather seamy and when using tweened segments; don't out line the joints. In addition, don't go overkill on the filters since they can induce lag on slower computers and connections.
Music: The music was very fitting, and it was nice of Reasoner to let you use it. On the other hand, it wasn't as touching as The Star Song's.
Content: I really like what was done here. Zeedox, for a first-time director, I say that you have done an excellent job with some clever angle choices. Plus, while the story was trite, it was good enough to get the point across. The only problem with this is the filesize, but it was worth the wait.

Overall: It's great, but not as great at The Star Song by GrannySmith. Here's a nine from me.
