So this is one of those things that can have no meaning or a lot of meaning. I tried to make it so you everyone interprets it differently but really its just someone getting a bus :)

I based this off some of the thoughts I have on some busses I get and then I decided to emphasise the hell out of it until it was slightly interesting (I hope)

Anyways I'm 14, this is my first flash animation that I've finished. I made this while waiting on lines for something else that I'm working on and used it as a learning experience to kind of get the hang of flash. I hope you enjoy it! Constructive criticism and advice is appreciated ^^



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I like to be fair when artist/creators produce actual effort in movies/games/audio/art.
Therefore, I will give you two positives and two negatives.
-The Concept
I appreciate the clear and relatable premise and setting. (A noticible social phenomena of social status based on popularity with a certain group)
-Voice acting
The voice actor was a good fit for the role. You cac feel the angst.
-For a first time the animation is better than most that I've seen on the judgement page first timers but to get the front page you'll need some practice and help from the more experienced animators.
-Art style, same problem with animation its raw and unrefined (time and practice will help).
Still, I don't want to blam this.
Its you putting your foot out into the world of animation.
2.5 Stars

The animation is very impressive for a 1st flash film. But their is some advice I can give you. First of all, you need to have the voice acting and music at the same audio level. We go from soft talking to loud music. Another thing is you shouldn't say "please don't blam" anywhere. Some folks on here will give you a 0-1 rating just because you said that. Just letting you know. Besides all of this, I think you will do great! Good luck!

Thanks for the advice! I'll make sure to keep that in mind in future toons ^^

Hmmm, the animation is soso. Not bad for a "first finished animation", but, compared to the usual submitted flash, I'd place it in the middle ground (not horrible, but has room for improvement). That being said, the NARRATIVE & ....plot(?) are pretty good, and kinda reminds me of the running noir-ish narrative of Sin City.

And the commentary on a social quirk. Social outliers facing the classic dilemma of the basic, primal need to survive by being a part of/accepted by a group or individual that may be just as human and bleed, cry, laugh, live/die the same as you and everyone else. But social circles place "THIS/THESE CHOSEN ONE(S)" at the top of.... some order, and thus in a place of power/authority to be judge, jury, and executioner of the social will..... whatever the hell THAT may mean at any given time.....

Vs. the need to be an individual and not draw personal worth from what another individual/groups standards hold on to, but directly from one's self (and, if the need for approval DOES manifest itself, it takes the form of POSITIVE groups (circle of close friends) or worthy individuals (suitable individuals who have been there, done that, exhibit emulatable traits, and make good personal guides, etc.). Which takes a level of strength for, if not all, or even most.... many regular people to do, but is probably the thing that makes a person different in a positive way.

Or maybe _I'M_ thinking to much too.....^_^.

In any case, VERY GOOD reflective flash!
