Matt and Steve of CornerStore films present... The Nutcracker Suite (trailer)

This is a short film revolving around a nutcracker universe. The plot: Maurice, a wannabe golf pro, gets kicked out of the "Nutcracker Society" for being a jackass. Insanity ensues. The movie will be animated - rotoscope style. In other words, Im going to draw over the video and make it a cartoon, replacing the background with a "Nutcracker enviroment". ps. this is only a short clip that i made.

YES - IT SURVIVED! thanks to anyone who gave us anything above a 1.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I'm glad this passed.

I've watched this 4 times already. The music really holds everything together very nicely. I like the accents you give them and the whole concept is funny. I think the real thing would be better if it stayed as just a video. Animating it would take away the atmosphere of this a bit. I'm not saying I won't enjoy an animated version, but there's just something about seeing real nutcrackers hoppin' around with their stiff movements and wood clanking mouths. As I've said before (in different words) you are very good incorporating the right music at the right times, I love the end after the tiger woods part when the chorus of the song starts and the white screen with slow scrolling text. I'm off to watch this again and am waiting for the final product be in shot in video form or animated.

thanks for the review. Ive actually decided not to animate it. But that might force me to leave it off NG since video files are huge. If you see the movie *or the ten minutes we have*, you'd see that it wouldnt work well if it were cut up into short segments... which id have to do to keep the file small... so i dont know what im gonna do...


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Can't wait for the movie!

very good idea with the preview thingy. Touch up on the graphics, and i dont think ti would look as good animated.
Tips: Get your hand out of the way!
Don't move the nut-crackers(tee hee) so fast, it makes the screen blurry!

Good work, two thumbs up.

Matty-182 responds:

Yeah, as of like.. 5 mintues ago, ive been contemplating whether or not i should animate. videos are huge though. but i might just do some image touch ups on photoshop... dont know yet.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

i like it

I gotta say i really like it, in the future however here are a few tips:

You defiantly wanna imporve your quality a little bit, there are areas where you zoom in that get very pixelated, so maybe touch those images up a little in Photoshop to make them work better in a zoom frame.

Following on I must say i love the whole idea behind this. Its really quite funny so i voted you with a 4, id hate to see this get blamed. Good work man and keep it coming.

Matty-182 responds:

yeah, i definitly need to improve the quality *though if i end up animating it, it wont matter. i like the photoshop idea. thanks.
