6/23/12 - Well, hot dog! I got daily 2nd place!
6/25/12 - Holy patoots - the short got featured on the front page! Thanks a lot everybody!

A shady businessman does his best to steal an innocent little girl's customers away with his rival lemonade stand.

My junior short at the University of the Arts, animated in Flash and touched up in After Effects.

The short is also on YouTube and such: CA
(I think the link gets a weird gap in it when I post this description, so just delete that space I guess)

I love to see unique animation :D or more original but I'm sure you know what I mean. Animation was interesting and the story line solid, it even gave me a few laughs and I hardly laugh O.O.

Loved it! Only thing making this short of perfect was the voice acting could have been a bit better. Amazing work though, cute story.

CarlDoonan responds:

Ah, I agree about my voice-acting. I ended up doing almost all of it in one big sitting, which was probably not a good idea. Hoping to set aside more time when I record for my senior film next semester.

Glad you still enjoyed it overall though!

Awesome. I loved it. Made me giggle at the end there when I recognized the music from the Guild's "Taste My Pirate Patty". ^__^

CarlDoonan responds:

Ah, sorry, I'm not familiar with that piece.

My music in the short is all from Kevin MacLeod's awesome free library, which you can find here:

Good. Very good indeed.
Absolutely love the use of colour in this one. Art and animation might be simple, but they are remarkably well done.
Most of all, i appreciate the humor, wich is light hearted yet not stupid and presents itself with a refreshing lack of violence and dick jokes.

People find this review helpful!
CarlDoonan responds:

I was originally going to make the short just straight black-and-white, but toward the end of production I felt the characters would pop more on color. Nice to see that decision worked out!

As for the humor, I'm glad you appreciated it! While dirty/violent humor can certainly work quite well, I prefer to keep my stuff pretty clean overall so I can share it with a wider audience.
