So this Kony thing has been a big deal lately and has taken the web by storm.

While I was in the process of animating this, one of the co-founders of InvisibleChildren ( the company that produced the Kony 2012 video ) had a mental breakdown.


Update: Thanks for the front page! Stay cool.

This made me laugh a bit, despite the general bad quality of the drawings.

What you could do to improve is.

Use less thick of borders. Also don't use pure black if you want. That looks better.
Use the line tool, or hold SHIFT with the brush to draw straight lines. That way boxes and tables can look a lot better.

Also, if you learn perspective that'll help out a lot. With it you could've made that shot of him on the computer desk pretty interesting, instead of flat, how it was.

The only reason I don't feel bad about sharing the KONY2012 video is because I did it when it was on <300,000 views so I wasn't trying to be "mainstream". BTW nice animation skills but would rather it to be a little longer.

This is a troll video. I will also take the following into consideration: Animation doesn't matter in this brand of videos. To spend the time on animating a hasty joke would take days. Days that you cannot afford to sacrifice.

While I am ommitting the bad animation score, i ask that you don't use patterned shirts. I know it was a concious choice, but it always looks like crap on a screen of any sort. You would receive a 1/5 on your art and 2/5 on your animation otherwise.

Sound was clear, crisp. I didn't like some of your choices (like the blinking), it was too cartoonish and took away from the message.

The voice acting for Kony was horrible. It was a deep voice. That's it. No accent, just a deep voice. I can't get over that.

As mentioned before, the message you put out is hilarious. That's why i'm not giving you a script score, but a troll score instead. This is the reason I don't use facebook. People who do are to be treated as a collective mind. You have no idea how many teeny boppers want to kill Kony - not as a result of Invisible Children, but as a result of facebook and the collective opinion.
