I can only find a minor thing I dislike here: The sometimes choppy animation.

Other then that, this is just great. The b/w silhouette art style fits perfect to the grim atmosphere of the entire movie! You build an intriguing storyline, I doubt anyone who watched the first minute of this didn't want to know how it ends. The sound effects (gunshots, metallic whir at the flashbacks) add well to the complete work, too.

What I don't understand: Why don't you mention the other parts of "The Overseer" in your author comments?! I'm sure many NGers who watched this also like to watch the first episodes, I sure did, since you took your time & patience to create a rough, hard and unforgiving story arc!
Man, I like that stuff!

Art and sounds are good but the movements seems a little simple for me. But the battle was so interesting and fun. It cept exciting till the end. Damn good job.

The animation needs work imo. It was kinda boring for me too, should have added more actual movements for action. Could have more sound effects and music too. The gun shots sfx kinda irritates me since they're "breaking the silence". It's still pretty good tho.

Interesting. Better animation later than the opening might suggest. Though the focus seems to be more on feeling than content, I was a little confused by the ending. What was the significance of the fox? A trailer-style with some commentary/over-view might have made things clearer and hopefully not destroyed the atmosphere. As a set piece, very good. As a trailer, good. As a precursor to a series, some changes would be welcome. Good score choice. Camera work for the battle was very well done. Good angles, shot composition and general use of Anime Studio Pro 9.

I'm right there with ya... to be frank, this along with the previous 2 are meant to be one 20 minute long short film. I can see how this violence with no context would confuse ya.
Thanks for the insight.
