Here it is everyone, my first animation with a large focus on traditional, frame by frame animation. This is the hardest thing i've ever made and took much longer than I thought. I decided to make this because I wanted to see how well I could make a short animation, essentially focusing on quality over quantity. I'm very proud of the final product and I hope everyone here can enjoy what I have to the fullest!

Eh

You certainly are pretty good at the frame-by-frame stuff, but the art itself is hideously bad. Very very messy. I suggest you work on that and then try to make the same frame-by-frame work. Voice acting is okay, but the mother's voice gets annoying.

this was great! very well done!! i definitely appreciate all the fbf work you put into it! especially towards the beginning when the angle goes from a front-shot of the mother, to a sideshot of the both of them. and the transition to the boy watching tv with the homework passing in front of the screen! very cool very cool!!

Straight up your animation let you down. Check out Richard Williams Animators Survival Kit at your local library or watch Oney, Spazkid or Alex Butera's tutorials on animation.

This was funny to me but probably not the way you planned... and not in a laughing at you way either, I'm glad you finished this piece, you can only get better and I am sure you will make better stuff soon. Perhaps work on a better dialogue also, this topic is not an unfunny topic but maybe the lines could have been improved. The voice acting surely could be improved, I assume it is all yourself? The mother needed to have a different voice.

With the story it didn't come off as funny because it came more to me like your mother annoys you in real life, and you are the young boy possibly, and you are not excited about having a younger sibling. What didn't work with that scenario (unluckily the crux of your story) is that I didn't feel the comedy behind it as intended. What I found myself thinking was that she was horrible and overbearing which made me more upset then laugh at the situation. The animation let it down by making the sequences more confusing and losing all the impact in the intended places.

I really do hope you continue to improve your work and ignore bad messages or what you didn't like about my review, but you need to start by looking at some tutorials. If you have got this far on your own I only think you can get better with some practice and tutorials to guide you.

I can certainly see where your comming from for the story and hope to improve on the comedy in the case of a sequal for this, but to put things at ease, the story is in no way based off of any experiences, just a story about mother with a power-hungry personality and her relationship with her well mannered son. I'll also agree that I make the mother appear realistically violent when I wanted it to come off as fantasy violence, but I'll make sure I can clear up that issue in the future (no more punches). Though what is the specific issue with the animation here that made it confusing?

Thanks for your input on the animation!
