An animation I made for a friend to promote his song.

cool one

that was a nice animation. wasn't quite the saddest love story i think, but it did have a sad theme to it. the graphics in this one were nice, good plotline to it, good entertainment and a very very nice song. your friend who wrote/plays this one is very good.... glad to see you creating this one based on that song... very nice indeed.


This is a nice idea. I couldn't really understand some of the lyrics very well, but the general sense of the whole thing fit the title, the Saddest Love Story.

The Animation was simple, but I think it fit the meloncholy tone of the song very well.

I would recommed adding a text bar at the bottom, and running the lyrics through that...it would certainly add to the appreciation of the song itself.

Good work!


I liked the song, you should make, no, force your friend to get a record deal because I'd buy it :D

Now onto the Flash. . .

Next time don't place 6 .jpg's to form an image, it is just as easier to draw them. I liked the snow effect, but perhaps more animation and close ups? Practice, practice and practice some more and I think you'll become even better at music video's :)


I liked the song, yes, but I don't think the animation really promotes it too well... if this is something that is going to be posted on a website, which, if I may assume, it is, its actually pretty good. I just want to STRONGLY suggest stayed away from tile-ing the bloody picture. It pulls away from the image. Just make it larger, I want to smack people who tile. Its confusing.

Also, soften the snow a bit, it kinda looks like someone is pulling a transparent sheet over the picture that has salt on it.

And just noticed too, the rose border on the left is angled incorrectly, swing the bottom to the left so the white disappears.

Visually, audio-wise, sure, its ok; but visuals need to be tweaked a bit. good job though, I hope your friend likes it.

MisterFeelGood responds:

Thanks for taking the effort to write a real review. Makes me want to take the effort to write a response.

It's gonna be posted on his website indeed, containing nothing but a link to the animation.

I might change the snow as you suggest. The border is angled like that on purpose. It was made by another friend of his so I just used his painting.

Thanks again for the constructive critisism!


this is a heaping pile of horse manure and belongs in a spastic ward.
