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.
Holy crap that was long. Wow you must have really dedicated lots of time to animate that. I liked the story but who ever was voicing the mom didnt seem to be really excited. I just HAVE to point out that her voice was extremely boring and dull.
On the other hand I liked the distinct style that you always use and I don't know if the rough out lines were deliberate or accidental but it isn't very noticeable. Out of the entire animation, I think that the walk cycles for the kid were the best. They were perfectly timed and paced. It is great to see improvement.
My favorite character is now, and most likely will always be , the foster father. His drawn style, his attitude, his voice acting. Perfect. I love how your transitions are between certain scenes like when he woke up and punched the chicken. That perfect, scene intentionally cut short thing makes me laugh every time. Good work on the animation and voice acting by the way!
It was decent but there was some things that confused me. If he was old, didn't he have some kind of life before this? He has no car or house at 71 and is willingly to live at some strangers house because he's 11?!
I know he did nothing with his life but he got to have some kind of life experience at 71 and not just be some scrawny sensitive kid who cries every other scene with horribly thick eyebrows. Okay, phew I'm done
Watched it all the way but I was expecting more the old man to still act like an old man even as a kid. Recalling stuff that happened in his life and confusing people. I once watched this one cartoon about the Legend of Zelda where Link wakes up 7 years later but is still acting like a kid.
this is good advice. thanks for the review!
I found this flash to be fairly good, however it was also in these places where most of my problems lie. First off, I like the animation. It's fairly crude, but it's also distinct and you can easily distinguish people from other objects. However, I really didn't like the backgrounds. Most of them were either minimalist or just some color. If more life was added to the backgrounds like in the animation, the whole flash could benefit.
I also really like the voice acting. Scratch that, I like most of the voice acting. While the male characters all had life and personality to them, the female voices sounded like they were ripped from speakonia. Honestly, this is one of those instances where I would have much rather preferred the male VA to do a fake girly voice. It would have been much more funny and added more of an edge to the entire flash.
Also, the sound design was just horrible. A lot of scenes felt extremely awkward because of there being no background noise in the scenes. The flash misses an opportunity to make scenes flow better and have them be more funnier without the addition of something like idle music. Something like a heartfelt acoustic guitar when the dad talks to Joe about drugs only to have it cut out when he says "I really want some" would have been hilarious. But it was a missed opportunity.
All in all, the flash could have been great, but is held back due to either poor choices or inattention.
