I'm taking my first ever animation class, and our first assignment was to animate three scenes and a jump. So this is what I came up with.

It's definitely one of the smoothest things I've done, in my opinion. My abuse of the blur filter forced me to convert it to a video file, though, so for the first time ever, I'm uploading one of those instead of a Flash file.

Runtime: 0:37



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This was pretty interesting. I will admit I had to watch it a few times to fully understand it, that's mostly because it went by so fast though.

The plot was simple, but it was entertaining and I can appreciate how you didn't need to rely on dialog to tell a story. It was portrayed well visually. However, I'm not entirely sure what happened in the end. Did the fan just not work, or was it just turning on very slowly and the guy was impatient? That wasn't quite clear.

The art style looks a bit too simple and could use some refinement, mainly character art, backgrounds were pretty decent though. The best thing artistically was probably the bus. There wasn't a lot of actual animation but what was there looked pretty decent. Adding more poses and inbetweens would help. The shot of the view looking up at the fan was pretty cool looking, and probably the most interesting shot in the entire short. The filters in this also really added to the visual appeal. They looked nice and never seemed unfitting to the scene, so good job with that.

As for audio, the sound effects all seemed fitting. The ambiance was nice and really added to it.

Overall, a decent piece. I enjoyed it, but some things could use some work. Good luck with your future works!

I liked it a lot! The animation was perfect except at the part when he throws the bag.
Keep up the good work!
