A legless young woman in New Jersey retreives the copper wiring from an old house at the behest of a shirtless slob. Nothing particularly strange happens afterward

This was my thesis, which won 3rd Place at ASIFA and will be featured at the Kingston Film Festival in August.

The music was by Brendan Steere and Free Parking. Anna Laytham played the amputee and Johnny Weiss the fat guy. Animated on paper, colored in Photoshop, compiled in Aftereffects.

This is one of those animations that is exceptional in some areas, but because of minor problems doesn't reach its full potential
This could have easily been one of the best animations of the year
The first issue is the dialogue in the beginning - It doesn't quite get your point across in a single viewing. Some of the word choice makes the dialogue hard to understand
I didn't even realize she was legless until she entered the house
The next issue is the voice acting - pretty awful, in my opinion. I'm no voice acting expert, but if I compare this to some of the other great animations on NG, I can see the quality is lacking.
The plot could have been better. Someone was mean to a cripple, so he gets his legs get torn off? I understand that this warped idea of justice is the main concept of the cartoon, and it kind of goes along with the aesthetic, so I don't think it's a huge issue, but nonetheless, I think you could have done a lot more with the plot.

But, in my opinion, this deserves a lot more recognition. The phenomenal animation more than makes up for these minor shortcomings. I hope to see more dark and awesome work from you!!
