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!!!!!!

Maybe not the most original idea on the planet (no, I was not thinking of "Monsters Inc" I am too old for that ;) ), but the little monster looked sweet anyway.

The thing that bothers me the most with this flash is the low audio quality. When the big monster is speaking, there are static noises all over the place. So either the microphone used was of rather poor quality or the recording level was too high. Also, when the kid screamed there where static noises as well.

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.

This was somewhat interesting to watch, but needs much improvement.

Graphics:
The characters and the backgrounds were well drawn and shaded. The facial expressions and lip syncing also worked well. The animation was usually pretty smooth, but not so much with the first close up of the monster's eye, which felt a bit choppy.

Audio:
The background music was fitting, but the rest needs work. The voices and sound effects didn't work very well at all, even if they weren't of such low quality. The "I'm real" spam at the end was especially bad; it seemed to serve no purpose but annoyance.

Concept:
This movie is unoriginal and doesn't even attempt to hide it. The character design and concept are obviously inspired by Monsters Inc. Even so, this was somewhat interesting to watch. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting the kid to scream, but it was still no where near scaring me.

Overall:
It's mildly entertaining, but the audio is terrible and the concept isn't even close to being original.
