In every Final Fantasy cinematic, I've always wondered why they don't really emphasize the spells that much since the name of the spells sort of what makes Final Fantasy its franchise. So I tried it myself and see how it would look like.

*Queue random battle music!



Rated 4 / 5 stars

The visuals plus the sounds on the abilities and their interactions with the environment were very appealing. I loved how well done the effects were. What surprises me is my ability to recall all the moves having not played FF forever. (The tediousness of the series pissed me off.)

I have to say plot elements were really thought out, I especially enjoyed when he realized Death spell had already been casted. My recommendation would have been to shorten the scene where it was casted to make it more difficult to tell what had just happened there the first time through.

The only displeasing thing I can think of is that you had to use stickfigures. You should have decked those mages out in classic mage garb, would have been sick. A Red Mage sort of themed character and a Black Mage themed.

the animation was great and you put an insane amount of detail using simple shapes and bland colours. the only problem is that this wasnt fast paced enough and the characters having faces kinda puts it off


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Really enjoyable. I find myself watching it multiple times. The sound, effects, pacing and music really give it a delightful intensity. If I might be allowed to complain about anything, it's the design for these mages. Given the quality of the spells, even the summon, it seems only fair that they should have had a bit more detail to them like clothing.

That would have made it a perfect video.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

As a hardcore Final Fantasy fan, I have to say you did quite well showing each individual spell. I could easily tell the higher levels of magic from the lower levels. Furthermore, I'm happy with your choice of BGM. It truly sounded like something that would be used in a Final Fantasy game / animation. However, I was slightly misled at first. The darker colored character was clearly a Black Mage, his yellow eyes and dark colors betrayed this. The lighter one however, I thought was a white mage at first, until he started blasting Black Magic as well. White mages are somewhat proficient in melee attacking, it's how they fight, when they aren't supporting. Black mages, however, have never been meant for melee combat, and are pure-magic casters.

As a long time fan of your animations, I was slightly disappointed. I'm used to your flashes being in 2D, so I understand 3D is something new, and even those experienced in 3D animation find it difficult. Despite this, I felt the animation was lacking. The close-quarters fight seen wasn't as intense as it usually gets in your animations. And it seemed slow to me. The lighter mage's swings looked like they were in slow-motion. But the darker one stayed true to the Black Mage class, and stuck with magic.

Despite this, excellent job. It's smooth, has great music, and is a sound tribute to Final Fantasy. Good work.
