After a long day of shooting flash ideas back and forth this is what came out of it. We weren't thinking of Monsters Inc. by the way.
Idea inspired by ZJ. We were going for a role reversal sort of thing.
Edit: woah front page. Thanks a lot!!!!!!
the voices could been better.
This seemed to be well done with the animation. Story went quite well too. Nice to see a little reversal too since I imagine maybe some monsters would be scared of humans rather than the other way around. The door opening sound gave a little bit of suspense to the story since it never knew when the human would come after it and scare them.
Animation here was nice and simple shading is seen showing there is a little bit of light in the closet it seems or at least it looks that way. The girl looking anime image during the end screen was rather unexpected and I guess it kind of lifts the spirits if the animation even scared the viewer at all.
The music was nice but I think it could have been lowered a bit so that the voice actors sound a little louder. The voice acting was also nice although for the first line spoken it sounded a little lower in volume than it should have been and then for the rest it sounded just fine, the gruff voice of the adult monster worked well and the little one sounding scared was also good.
Overall, I would lower the volume just a little bit. The image at the end screen was funny though since it feels rather out of place to me.

I really liked the concept, and I thought it was well-executed. The sfx really helped create the appropriate atmosphere (suspense). I thought the voice actors were a good fit for the characters they played, and I was really startled by the roar at the end!! I liked the simple graphics for the most part as well, matched the absurdity of the situation.
The biggest shortcoming for me was the lack of detail. The beginning of the flash was well-framed; i.e. the li'l monster appears to be in a closet. But the background of the frames with papa monster weren't detailed or clear enough to show how he was lying, where he was, et cetera. I would probably recommend embellishing the characters movements a bit. A couple of examples of this would be:
1. When li'l monster's eyes fly open, make them quiver, dilate the pupils, something like that. And make the second time it happens it should be more exaggerated.
2. When the 'kid' shows up at the end and roars, make the face move as well as the psychodelic effect (with the red). Perhaps change the facial expression in the very last frames.
I thought this was overall well-made, while it was simple it certainly wasn't crudely drawn or poorly planned. You guys have a good sense of storytelling and the script was well-paced and captivating. I look forward to seeing/reviewing more of your submissions.
I HATED THE VOICES BUT LOVED THE MUSIC, STORY, AND ANIMATION. GREAT WORK MAN.
Improve animation quality, you are better than some, but many are ahead. Good Idea though.
Blue Pencilmate meets Red Pencilmate, but things don't go so well...
