:) First video submission of sorts, the idea is that in this dream I'm wandering in a deserted landscape where only this building can be found. Other faceless people wander towards the building and so I figure I should too (sheeple!) But, something else is in this place with us and is taking us out one at a time until finally it focuses on me.

Attacked I have to get myself out of this situation to which I strike the shadow beast. In doing so the building begins to close itself off and now I cannot get in.

Way too short.

ShadyDingo responds:

Yeah, again, like a lot of my works of art or stuff like that I'd like to revisit it and see if I can improve them.

I feel the idea would have been better if you were able to include what you were saying in your author comments into the video it self, Perhaps more still shots of each scene. For instance the facless people could be better described if you had the character inspecting them up close give those faceless people as much detail as possible but leave the faces blank that way the viewer knows its intentional. Another aspect is perhaps show the character outside the building with the doors shut at the end this way they can confirm he didnt make it in. If you have trouble conveying the entire message don't be afraid to put in a short prolouge. For a first its not bad but it's not great. Now for what I enjoyed, the music was a nice touch added that nice ambiance to the scene. The idea is an interesting one after I had read the authors comments but needless to say not bad for a first.

ShadyDingo responds:

I agree with you entirely. I should have added a intro commentary more likely to better describe the purpose behind this animatic and what it was based upon, as well as explain each frame and ultimately what it was based off; a nightmare/dream I had. Thanks for the critique, comment and rating :)

you know what? since im a big fan of zombies and you just played one of my favorite movie songs, i gave you 3 stars. it had me anticipating what was going to happen next. i liked it. make it nice, don't rush, take your time and ill definitely watch this again when its finished

ShadyDingo responds:

Hehe I love the 28 days/weeks later track. And in the future I will be sure to post higher quality work than this. The big point is that it is an animatic not an animation, I literally took a storyboard, added greyscale and added music and set it to a pace I felt was appropriate (but could have been adjusted a bit better for a more refined flow of movement) :) Thanks for the comment and rating.

a bit short. I would have liked to see more but still very nice, love the style

ShadyDingo responds:

I was stuck to using only a couple frames for this assignment but I would definitely like to revisit this and extend it further, there was a lot missing.

its just... meh nothing realy speacial about it

ShadyDingo responds:

Understandable and it isn't front page material ;) As I said before I could have put more time towards detail or at the very least work in a different program that works with frame to frame rather than page by page. Being an animatic its a big step below an actual animation ;)
