Color Theory Episode Production Map - https://trello.com/b/BastCQ6b/season-1-production-map
To be honest i didn't have trouble following the story at all. in fact the complete opposite. i could tell what was going on by how the characters were interacting. sure some things made me go "why did this happen" or "why did he/she do that?" but its the first episode (i presume?) so i expect not to know a lot with whats going on until more episodes appear. now for sound effects and music, i really like it. it makes me feel like I'm watching an Atari game. which in my opinion is cool. the music fit in great, and not cause it was full of bleeps and bloops, but because it fit the mood for what was going on. the visual style is great and i love how they are all basic shapes. The way you move and transform them is cool, like with the squinting of one character. only thing id say is the shading felt a bit off at times like the shadow of the characters hood. all in all i think it was great and can't wait to see more :)
I'm a bit late on this but I still wanted to write a review. The visuals are nice and I like the style you were going for. It was a bit too gray for something called Color Theory but still it looks nice. The sound and music isn't anything special but their still cool. The big problem is the story telling, you need to do a better job telling the story in the next one. I did eventually get what was going on after watching it a few times, though. Overall this was pretty cool and I'm excited to see more.
The animation is good but the story is a bit confusing. Hopefully, a bit more would be explained next episode.
really liked the experimental style to it all but i didn't get anything from the story. i watched this like 6 times and still couldn't pull together a full plot synopsis. from what I saw none of the characters really have a trait. i would test out with storytelling and character devolpment before you make a full serious cartoon / full serious episode of a show. also just a small nitpick but holy shit 8-bit music and sound effects are so fucking overused even for something like this, but thats not really your fault. still stickin around for what you've got next, i was and still am excited for this color theory thing to be a thing i'll really enjoy.
I'm gonna actual critique this, i figured if your somewhat self aware youll be able to understand where im coming from, but nevertheless lets get on with it.
1st of all, megaman sound effects get fucking annoying after a while, i dont know how someone can sit through hours of BLIP BLOP BLIP without getting pissed off, but whatever, thats what you like so you put it in there, fine. Except you spent 98 fucking dollars on those sound effects and they're shit. Also, the folly sound effect of the clothes rustling is so fucking loud.
The music iust ok i guess, i dunno, not realy my kinda thing, pretty basic shit.
2ndly, and this is a big one, YO NEED TO BE ABLE TO EFFICIENTLY TELL YOUR STORY!
The art of animation, comic books, ect. is to tell stories through a visual medium. Truthfully, you dont NEED words and dialogue or text to tell your story at all, if the poses, characters, composition, lighting, ect. is god, then you can get away with it. You however have failed at grasping this concept.
All of the scenes in this short make no sense, i literally cant follow it/have no fuicking idea what happened from beginning to end. If you asked me what the plot of this episode was, id say some orange guy fucked around with 2 grey guys, then became friends, and while hanging out the one guy got shot. but like, im not even realy sure. I have no idea what the difference between the characters were, i lost track of who was who, i didn't know if orange guy was a dick or what, he just went around slapping his knee and pelvis thrusting.
The backgrounds are pretty garbage too, they're overly simplified and are hard to follow, i have no idea where the characters are in relation to each other, and if im looking at a new scene or an extension of the last one.
finally, the fucking animation. To be honest, there were some passable frame by frame sequences in here, i gotta say.
but tweening around geometric shapes is fuckin' lazy, unappealing, and once again creates a lot of confusion for the audience.
And i guess that's what i have to say about this whole cartoon in general, its CONFUSING. I was in a call with you and you explained everything abou color theory to me, IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE! I could barely fucking follow the incoherent lore of this backwards ass fantasy sci fi shit storm you call a narrative! you are the only person who understands your story, literally no one else can follow it. Show this to anyone, and ask them to tell you what happened, i highly doubt they can tell you an accurate plot synopsis.
but what do i know, im just another fag who gets whipped around by influence bosses.
I will be sure to note that next time =^)
