The American Jerk: Birth of an Antagonist is a film I created in 4-5 weeks for an intro Flash class at The Savannah College of Art and Design. I like the concept and I think that I'm going to develop this further into more stories and adventures.

I did everything all the way down to the little girl's voice. Music and SFX from

Decent enough but again, the lip sync is really bad. From the looks of things there is going to be an American jerk 2 which would be cool and and i'd vote for to pass judgement, but please sort out the speaking by then.
Apart from that, a good flash.

pretty sweet but....

pretty sweet but your lip sync is crap. sometimes it lines up pretty good, sometimes not, sometimes it syncs perfect but their lips continue to move for like 10 seconds after audio stops... like there saying something else. Did you animate this before writing a script?

No synch

Well I don't know why but it was a pain to watch this, I'm talking about the Lip's synch: there was none. And I think I have a good computer (Athlon 64 3500+, 1Gb Ram). I turned down quality without changes. The little girl with the cats was funny.

Bad story and the sound is terrible!!


Rated 1 / 5 stars

not horrible, not good

Your drawing skills aren't too bad, which is why you got a 4 in graphics and a 5 in style. I didn't think it was all that humorous as most everything that you put in there has either already been done, or just wasn't all that funny.

I gave sound a 0 because of two things, one the character voices aren't that great, and 2 because of the bad lip-sync. If you could atleast fix the lip sync the cartoon would be less distracting from your work, and would allow for a better review on other things. It takes away so much from the over-all piece that I am only giving it a 2 over-all rating.
