An old man named Joe drinks a potion and becomes young again. I hope you enjoy it, hundreds of hours of time and effort were put into it.

Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it , Love it !
I love the story , the voices ( Foster Moms voice was a lil' off ) , the animation style and the subtle humor. Can't wait for part 2 !

Just one question ; Where are the foster dads eye balls !

Interesting mixture of real and animated at the beginning, with the windshield. It would be nice with some more of those transitions in the movie. Also an nsterestng transition back to the youth, apart from that, it's all regular animation. The style is simple, a bit bland maybe but it's fun to watch, though It feels like it moves at a rather slow pace sometimes. At the beginning it moves fast, the plot kickstarts, but after that a lot of time is spent on the ordinary, like gum under his shoe, waiting, sitting in class... I guess it portrays the way he feels about the new life, but it's a bit slow sometimes.

The plot reminds me of BIG. Suddenly an old man becomes a kid again, but that's pretty much the only similarity. It turns into a pretty awkward situation after a while, both comical and ordinary. Gotta feel some sympathy for the parents who have do deal with him, lmao. At the beggining, as an old man, he somehow doesn't look very old. The gray hair is pretty much the only sign of age. I suppose the wrinkles under the eyes are there to make him look older, but they're not really enough! Otherwise the animation is good, smooth and simple, with occasional added detail on new surroundings and things. The breakfast part is probably the most comical part. :) Looking forward to the continuation. Keep it going!

Oh yes, the old theme of "becoming young again" (and of course the theme "skipping your childhood to become old"). It's not a very original theme, but it still is an interesting idea for a movie.

I like that your take on the whole situation is a bit more on the serious side. It's like the old saying goes: "Be careful what you wish, you just might get it". Joe wanted to become young again, because he thought he would be happier. But it turns out that he is even more depressed with his "new life" than he was with his old. Should be interesting to watch how this will turn out once you finished the second part.

Another thing I liked was, that you did put in some jokes here and there. It's a good relief from the serious undertone of this submission.

Overall: A good movie and I recommend everyone to watch it.

I would just like to say thank you very much for letting me work on this project. The animation was your best yet, had completely full animation in every scene, unlike Kingdom Farts, although that was good too along with Adrellia Village #39, in which I also worked on, only that time it was shorter and I was co-authored, but I have no problem not being co-authored here.

First off, the voices are awesome, especially Foster Dad's. It was hilarious, unlike my animations, which are totally unfunny to be honest. Some might be decently funny though. I definitely learned some animation from this project too, some techniques from this project I used in one of my upcoming projects that will come sometime in Early February to Early March. Jokes include fruit being the Clock Crew, and etc.

I also started to do a whole lot less tweens ever since I worked on this project (projects like Bagel Virus had some animation inspired from this project, other projects may have mostly tweening though, like Webdings for example). Apparently inbetweening is a whole lot more fun than tweening, unless it was camera movements or something.

Here's a few tips though. Maybe for some of your walk cycles like Foster Dad walking into Joe's room during the One Direction scene could've had arm movement. Same to when the principal let's Foster Dad and Joe talk to each other. But Joe's walk cycle was awesome. Too bad December 22nd to the 24th work was lost during that time, but you either made it up or will make it up I suppose.
In addition, wasn't Old Joe from The Bird, or was Old Joe similar to the old man in The Bird. Nice Good Day Sunshine credits as well. I didn't like what Young Joe said after he said he was Tom Hanks. I thought that was unnecessary and too rude. Production music was also nice. I can tell that some parts were rushed though, like the second time Young went to Old, then Young, then Old, then Young, and almost all the Foster Mom parts. Also, there was nothing on the chalkboard. Did you make that intentional or accidentally? Nice classmate voice too.

Hopefully you liked this review, and please respond to this, as this is a very long one. Thank you very much, and have a good day!

thanks for the review. yes, there were similarities to the old man in The Bird, to answer your question. the chalkboard thing was intentional. in the beginning she writes something but after that her hand slowly glides even though she's not writing anything.

It was good, the slow pased actions worked well and the action transitions were smooth and synced well with the dialoge, character designs were also nice for the most part :)
Great job, I can see improvment almost everywhere, im starting to really dig your style :D
some of the designs were a lil lack luster like the wizard and the old teacher tho. But overall good work man, and the simple lip synce worked nicely too. keep it up!!!!
