I dont like how this video glorifies the Timeline feature.

The timeline layout looks horrendous and should be removed.

in no way does this video glorify the timeline feature

Eh. It was an impressive bit of work. Nice animation. Mildly interesting. It was just kind of boring. I eventually started hoping it would be over soon. Sound and animation were fine. Concept seemed ok, but I'm wondering if you achieved what you set out to achieve. The professor dude was boring. The street man was odd but boring. The apple guy was creepy, but boring. "They took our jobs." That was very funny. I think maybe if the characters were more colorful.. they just kind of droned on.. the professor was professory.. apple dude not nerdy.. the politician like dude being a drone kind of fit.. and the street guy.. well maybe he was too colorful..

well i didn't set out to make the main characters flail around the screen like some kind of egoraptor parody. the simple animation / the characters being fairly static is intentional, the humour is derrived from the script and the juxtaposition between the subtle changes of the backgrounds and the fictional events that are being discussed. i'm sorry that it wasn't your cup of tea!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

i didn't like it much at all didn't laugh once the history was kinda iffy the animation and sync was what got you 3 stars

killourkid responds:

so it wasn't to your taste, but what about the history was iffy? i'm glad the animation and sync was to your standards tho


Rated 3 / 5 stars

great animation and sound but very boring story, its more like a documentary than humor. maybe you went for that but i found it quite plain

killourkid responds:

it's a mockumentary


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I hope the remark about timeline being loved by all was sarcastic. I have yet to hear a single positive comment about timeline since creation.

you should take it all as sarcasm, except maybe the occasional point raised by natasha "anonymous" goddard ;)
