  • NG Movie Jam 2
    NG Movie Jam 2 Teams had 48 hours to animate the theme, "Too Scared to _____."

Author Comments

Done in less than 48 hours for the movie jam, so at the moment, it's a little rushed and unpolished, but that's to be expected.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Now THIS is a video submission! Excellent work capturing a certain mood and making me want to know more about the story. This is the kind of work I wish there was more of here on NG.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Animation a bit crude (Considering the 48 hour limit) but storywise,it was confusing but heartwarming.
Keep up the good work!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

The people reviewing this who said that you needed to spend more than 48 hours on it are kind of missing the point, aren't they?

I give you four stars because I know how hard it is to make a flash movie this long in that short of a time. The stylistic choices worked most of the time, and most of the time, I could gather the story rather well.

Unfortunately, several individual things bog this movie down. When the style goes from intensely stylized (black silhouettes) to "realistic"? I groaned. To be completely fair, it looks... gross. That's my biggest issue; it was a very poor stylistic choice. Sticking entirely with the first style might have been better. Moreover, the story seemed very loose and casual to me, and not well thought out. Also, personal complaint that doesn't affect my review: whhhhaaaattt the fuuuccckkk with that ending???!

All in all, a nice jam with a few fatal flaws. Practice will get you very, very far C:

Ask, and thou shalt receive. You were the second person to call on the sillouhette thing. It was originally just because I was going for more realistic lighting than style, but having amended that now, I can see what you mean, it does look way better.
As for the story, it's already as tight as I can get it. I'm pretty comfortable with where it's at.
