I was uncertain about this at first because of the blocky design used for the space station, but I quickly let go of that prejudice. Your work on this piece is absolutely superb and I can tell you put in quite a bit of work in it. The ship was designed really well, and the characters were equally well done, but the ship design and animation is where I can tell that you really put in the effort.
The animation is very fluid and the sound fits very well with the themes. The computer voice could have been a little louder though, as I couldn't quite hear what it was saying, but this is balanced out by the fact that it is reading out what's printed on the monitors.
Voice acting is believable and, while it isn't stupendous, it is well done.
Musical choice is where a flash makes or breaks itself for me, and you made perfect choices for it, that's why I'm giving sound a 9 instead of an 8, as I was originally planning on doing. The decision to go with an ambient sound track rather than anything over the top fits the theme very well.
Interactivity, violence and humour get zero because there is none present, but this is merely an animated movie, so I'm sure you understand the logic there.
Overall, I give this an 8. If you ever continue the storyline, you'll definitely find me at the front of the line because I really like where you're going with this.
Thanks for a great review!
The space station was the very first thing I drew, most of which was done in class which is why it was simple. Then only have lo-res monitors at college so its hard to draw on them :( Everything else I drew at home, mostly on paper then scanned and traced.
Thanks for your comments on the music and voices, I think it turned out OK, took a while playing with the sound effects to balance them with the music, as they would blend alot.
I am hoping to follow this up with a game, and maybe and animation (if I can save up for tablet!).
Thanks again for your kind comments.
