An angel places a bet with God on a man who wins a bottlecap contest.

This was part of a contest with some other shorts in my area. We had to make a short film in 2 days. As part of the rules, we were given a prop to use (a bottlecap), the theme "World of Wonder," and a line of dialogue, "Wow, vetlvet really is soft." Everything had to be original and copyright free or use with permission. So this cartoon is our finished product. Enjoy!

Mediocre graphics (terrible at times) and horrible writing. I'm sure you were sitting at home stoned, watching My Name Is Earl, and, feeling a bit mischievous and unoriginal, you decided to try and pull the same general concept off but with a "twist." You probably got the idea of changing the lottery ticket to a bottle cap just from thinking of the word "twist." That's not necessarily a bad thing; I'm just trying to put myself in your predictable shoes.

The storyline didn't really follow through and the flash ended rather abruptly. This flash may contain one of the worst excuses for an ending I've ever seen. "Ooo...soft." "Now that's ironic."... What? It's ironic that the shirt the trucker purchased was soft? Or that an angel administered some guy's second death? It seems like you just couldn't come up with anything, so you killed the main character off. And it's so fucking trite and cheesy to end a movie with "Now that's ironic." What happened to the guy, by the way...shouldn't he have ended up back in front of that gay angel's desk?

Overall, I found this flash to be very incoherent, irresolute, and awkwardly childish. You should get someone to help you write...and draw. The sound was all right, but that made no difference in my opinion of the film.

People find this review helpful!

Great flash, I can't wait to see this on PBS, good luck with that. Great animation, style, and sound.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Oh sweet irony LOL

I like your work, though Brenda Durbin is still my favourite.

This one was funny and the graphics were decent. Your sick humour is awesome and I think I have to credit you with some of the best writing I have seen so far.

Keep it up!

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not too bad but room for improvement

Graphics wern't poor but could do with some work and the sound could too.

And none of that was actually ironic. Unfortunate and ironic are two different things dammit!
