Ok, I can dig this, a short, quick movie that is meant to make a general point across. It's supposed to be niceley animated and something you remember, to bad that it bareley does any of that. There is noy storyline whatsoever so it fails to keep my attention up for it, not only that, but the sheer randomness just makes for an awkward submission. Sure the graphics are nice and everything looks realistic and great, but something is missing. That extra edge that really gives a submission a good score. Overall, well, I can't say that I liked it, simply because it was to short, a tiny bit longer than that would probebley be better.


^^Good Points^^
The art in this movie was well made. I liked the very dark tones in the color, and the drawings were above average as well. The music was also cool. Set a neat mood for the movie.

^^Needs Improving^^
I'm not sure I really like the storyline in this movie. It was a short movie, which isn't necessarily bad, but you developed no storyline at all really. I don't really see what you are trying to accomplish with the storyline. Robots are unable to make their own societies? Not very interesting.

The whole thing all together was short yet very smooth. I notest that when the scene would change, the transition was very clean cut and smooth.

A Nice Short Animation

It was short indeed. And there is also room for improvement. The graphics were nicely drawn and shaded. You did a good job on those. The style was nice as well. I found this to be quite orignial hencing the fact that I have never seen anything like this before. The mood of the animation was dark and depressing, exactly what a weird animation should include. I understand this was made in four hours, but there is lack of storytelling. What I mean by storytelling, I am not saying a narrator literally telling the story, but some pictures that convey what has happened and why it happened. Causes leading to that event, in other words. The music fitted the animation great and it was a perfect choice for this animation, but there was a lack of sound effects. I believe if you would have added some sound effects, it would have greatly enhanced the movie's creepiness. Overall, good job and good luck on your future submissions.

Summary Points: Good Graphics, Good Style, Great fitting music, but there was a lack of sound effects, Very nicely done to be made in four hours.

Morgan responds:

I based a lot of the style on David Firth or "Doki".
The sound effects i dont think would have worked tough. Not that i put sfx effects into every movie i make but i dont think it would have suited as the movie went very fast from one cut to the next so it would have been a soundeffect every second.
Anyway, good review.

A good little movie

Yeah, a good little movie, r should I call it a clip? Anyways, you really need to make something longer, that will take you more than 4 hours. You got what it takes I figure, so why not to do it? Short movies don't go far. That's just the way it is, it's not my fault.

<Why does nobody click that the review helped?>

Morgan responds:

Yes, it does need to be longer, but as i said, i only made it in a few hours so i was just screwing around with it.
Oh yeah, the review did help. :)
