So it has been another rough month, and I've been rather negative and pessimistic this whole time. Although I know there are some obvious flaws with this video, I'm going to use this space to say what I actually like about it for once.

1. I tried a different art style, and I think it worked out fairly nicely.
2. I managed to completely change the genre of the movie from a comedy to something more serious in about five days, and it came out a bit better than I anticipated.
3. Although not all the sections are frame-by-framed, I am proud of how smooth certain scenes (like the one where he is standing by the car) turned out when viewed simply for the animation quality.
4. I also redid the music a few times because of the change of genre. I like how that turned out.
5. I made a fully functional 3d rig in Blender for the main character. Although I didn't actually end up using it at all, it's the first time I've done that from scratch.

yeah so thanks for listening and supporting me so far in NATA.

Um, I don't really get it...? I understand, you don't miss things until it's gone, but I don't understand how any of those things the guy was losing had any major significants to move any emotions in me. Yeah, loosing his son was pretty bad, but even that didn't have the right impact since everything else that was no where near as important disappeared first. I don't know, I think I'm missing the point here. I'm giving four stars because the animation was good and smooth. But I think the story would have been stronger if the son disappeared in the beginning, when he forgot to wave goodbye; that would have been more powerful, and less confusing.

You see, having all of those unimportant things just poof made the story seem like a comedy, so I wasn't prepared for anythign more heart wrenching (which I think you were going for...?) he lost his coffee, he can gets some more, he loose his paperwork copy, he can copy another, he loses all of these material things, and then POOF! son goes too, something he can't replace (kind of...). I get it, but I really think it should have been done in reverse, for more of an effect. Say the son disappears while the dad is driving off, and he doesn't notice, after that, all of this little material stuff starts to go missing, but he brushes it off since he can replace it. Then at the end of the day, he finally gets home (after things start poofing on him) and he looks for his son, but low and behold, he can't find him--I think that would have gone for a more dramatic effect.

I don't know, I'm not the one making the cartoon, I liked it, and I see where you were going, but I just feel as if it wasn't powerful enough for the meaning it was trying to portray.

I really really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the art style, and I like the way you draw people.
I felt that once it got to the point, it moved SO FAST. Maybe that was your intention?
Though I like all of the subtle things you managed to squeeze in. (his 'wife'?)

It was great, I love it, but it took a while to get to the meaning and right as I thought it was started, it was over. So your really only losing 2 stars for my own selfish reasons. But hey, I didn't enjoy it because of those self reasons, so, yeah.

An element Newgrounds seems to be missing recently is flashes that take on a deeper meaning. Thank you
