more than 1000 hand drawn frames (w/ mouse)
2 hrs of work (thus the small size)

if you have an idea for a funny/interesting plot for an animation, but don't have the time/interest/skill to make it, leave a comment and if i make the film i'll cite you as a co-author (i dont have any ideas of my own besides those from songs)

i thought the song would be fun to draw something to.
please leave some commments.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very nice.

Graphics: I can't believe you did this in only 2 hours. Especially if you had 1000+ frames with a mouse. Its just too good for such a small amount of time. Although, it gets kinda lax toward the end.

Style: Very good music video. You did a good job of interpreting it and animating it.

Sound: That is some song there. I can see how it inspired you to animate it.

Hope your next flash will be just as good, if not better than this one.

Harkens back to the first days of animations. When lines carried as much character in them as a fully animated person. Excellent job, I imagine it's hard to put character and life into circles and lines. Origional stuff like this is hard to come by.

That was nice. It was simple and fun and not OMFG KILL EVERYTHING!!! So I enjoyed it. I thought that the little squigglies jumped around really quickly, too quickly. And the stick figures at the end moved away choppily.

I don't like how you assumed we are stupid and "wouldn't get it" so that lessened your score a bit. Otherwise, nice job.

I was more thinking that I didn't do a good job getting it across. but sorry to offend, i'll change that.

thanks for the review


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good

It flowed really well. The only bad part was at the very end when the two stick figures moved away from each other, really choppily. I don't know if it was intentional, but it kind of ruined the perfect score on style. But everything else was really good.
