I was inspired to make this after I viewed Dan Paladin's animation "Carrot". Looking back at it now, it seems I just replaced his carrot with a match.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

indeed, the candle was smoking...

and what a blue party.

but your drawing is funny and the chase scene is very good.

but the true intent of this review:
take five was a very good choice....(your fades and fx´s are nice too)

nice job, dude.

Thank you very much, I love that track and I def wanted to use it for something. I enjoyed working with it for this flash animation specifically, because of all its twists and turns.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Been blamming lots of movies lately

It's pleasant to see one movie out there that's better than blam material. I am a hard marker, but I don't think I am entirely unfair. This one is definately worthy of a place in Newgrounds. It's a little artsy for my tastes, but it's a keeper.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


why would the candles be emitting smoke if they have yet to be lit? i mean, the kid hasn't blown out the candles yet right? why else would the match be running away unless the candles hadn't been lit yet? (unless i missed something, in which case, disregard this comment =) )

but yeah, good animating and a nice choice of music (went very well with the animation)..

danbell responds:

I dunno, have a little imagination. I can't mouthfeed the audience everything, haha. Maybe the candle went out really quick before he blew it out, or maybe he didn't blow it out just right and he had a hissy fit. But I can see how it may confusing to people. oh, and thanks for the compliments at the end, i appreciate it.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I definetly like your style.

Man, I was really diggin' that jazz music you had as your backround. The good animation was a plus. Storyline make sense but was a little weak at the end. Seriously, it was original as hell and that's kind of rare.

Word up, that song was called "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck. I recommend you listen to the whole cd if ya liked that track.

danbell responds:

clever... but the rating only goes up to 5, so it looks like you couldn't have had 6's all across the board, mwahaha...
