The Appointment

A corrupt businessman with mafia ties is visited by an unwelcome guest.

Philosophy (do not read until afterwards)-

Whenever I write a story, I always try to throw in little nuances for people to catch. With this tale, however, well... the thing's friggin' loaded, for your viewer enjoyment.

For anyone interested and/or familar with Greek Mythology, the guy that takes Baxter Powell away is the modern day Charon, the ferryman of the dead. If you'll notice, his briefcase bears the insignia of his double hammer.

Also, on the bookshelf are the scales of justice. There's a lot of character blocking (putting people either on the left of the right of someone or something to resemble either the noble or the ignoble character). He pulls up in a limo (the ferry of the roads). The dialogue also contains many little subtlties for you to goggle over.

Anywho, that's all I have for now.

Very nice

I already like this and how it gets started, the "CHARACTERS" are very welldone, greaphics on characters are very slick and welldone once again, you have a really good story, only problem here is the voices is muffled and you may want to ad some "SUBTITLES" but besides all that this was very good indeed.

Ad some subtitles the voices are muffled.



Very good in story, animation and diologue. I enjoyed it and hope to see more.

Very good..

It wasn't that bad, not at all. There was a few things I noticed about the hitman's lip that made me chuckle, like when he first started talking to Powell, his lip just flipped to the left. But it was interesting, I did like the mood, too.

9 out of 10 " Not bad for a 'Hitman' story, I liked it."

wow very nice very nice

yeah i felt that that was good very good...

good job man that moved me

That was very moving

The sadness and desperation of the businessman was captured well in this movie. I liked how you had his associate discover his body. The talking was slightly muffled though, which made it a little difficult to understand.

SketchMichaels responds:

Glad you liked it. It seems I fall for my concepts a lot more than the art. Such is life.

And the sound is duly noted... I need to find a voice actor with a decent mic. Thanks for reviewing. :D
