SUGGESTION: READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE WATCHING.

Hey guys! I just want to make it clear that I believe everyone has the right to believe whatever they want, as long as it doesn’t interferes with other people’s life. I’m also not against Religion in particular like you will see in the video I’m just being honest based on the things I see in MY LIFE and my experience in it. That being said I think we can all agree that no matter where we are from or what we believe in, we all want the same thing, which is basically to live a happy life. Having that in mind I know the final message of this animation can suit anybody.

So keep an open mind, if you have something to share I would love to hear your thoughts.
I hope you enjoy the video and in the best case, take something good from it.

There is an after-credit scene, stick to end.

That’s all thanks a lot for watching and much more if you are reading this.

Have a great day and best of lucks in everything!

Oh right! I’ve started with all this fairly recently so LIKING, SHARING & SUBSCRIBING REALLY HELPS A LOT. Thanks again, be well!

Not bad, it was more about the story than it was the animation I thought, and a good one to ponder. I like how you put the scientist in the position of humility. You know if we only believed in each other, and managed to let life here continue beyond the lifetime of the planet... wishful thinking. The old man is a prick, and the other guy's an idiot. 4.5 stars.

Hey man! you are absolutely right, I thought that too. I knew from the start it was going to be more about the conversation than the actual animation, but I wanted it to do it anyway. I'm happy you ended up liking it. Hahaha great character summary. Thanks for the comment brother!

First off, good animation. Obviously you know that it's rough but you clearly put a LOT of effort into it and that shows. For such a long animation you chose good techniques to make the process of animating more bearable for yourself, but I also noticed those techniques right away (when I saw the old man talking I was like yup he's definitely not moving out of that position for a while)

I think you should have gotten a voice actor for one of the guys. The accent was fine but when the white-looking dude has the accent it tips me off that the voice acting is all done by one dude. The lines were decently delivered, though a little stilted sometimes.

I think what you'll see a lot of is people taking issue with the arguments because they're religious or whatever. A good way to circumvent that is by having more counterarguments emerge that draw what the old man is saying into question. Even if he rebukes all of the pints perfectly the religious side will still feel like they've had their argument heard (it also doesn't help that the conclusion seems to imply that the old man is genuinely correct in believing in god)

I guess what I'm saying is there is a line between where the audience knows that they're listening to a character and where they know they're listening to the creator of the character. We could tell pretty early on that the old man was a self-insert for your ideas, plus a bit of drunkeness. Nobody likes to feel "preached" at, so more characterization of the old man would be good.

I liked the jokes at the end, they were kind of stilted but I got what you were going for. Very much like that the old man was fucking with the business man, fits with the theme of the animation nicely. Keep it up my dude.

Thanks a lot man! haha yeah you are right, I was planning to make them swap between at least 3 poses, but I don't know why I didn't do it.
Good point about the voices, I will definetly use some other voice actors in the future, but is to early for me, at the moment I'm focusing on improving my work as a whole. I've been learning to animate only by watching some youtube tutorials and at the same time trying to figure out how to write and act, so I have a long way ahead of me, I'm taking it slow.
As for story discussion you are absolutely right, I'll keep it in mind. I didn't want it it to be like it was me, thats why I chose the old drunk, but I see what you are saying too.
One last thing, the ending of the animation (God showing up) is a reference to an other animation of mine, the idea is that is happening in the same universe. Please,if you have the time check it out, I would love to hear your thoughts on that one, its on my channel, called OH MY GOD.
Well that's it man, thanks again for taking the time to letting me know all this, I really apreciate it.
Promise I'll get better, best of luck!

I can see all the effort you put in the designs and backgrounds.
The timing and lip sync was good.

The animation isn't that great, but eventually it grows on you.

I personally (based on my own beliefs) did not agree with some of the things said by the old man, but it was informative none the less


OblitusCS responds:

Thanks Chris! Yes I know, there is a lot of talking. Still I'm very happy you liked it and that you were able to see it all, specially if you were disagreeing with the old man.
