reviews would be appreciated

an experimental art project in which i have tried to show how the brain can suddenly produce a series random images totally unrelated to anything that you are currently doing.

Very Creative

You were very creative in this project, but there were many details and elements that were lacking. First of all, the graphics weren't established very well. I understand that the graphics weren't your main concern and the precise focus of the animation, though it would have been great if you would have added an abstract or surrealistic background of some kind which would have strengthened the overall theme of the animation. Without color, the animation looks bland and loses its overall effect.

The style you conveyed was great. The animation was very creative and kept you guessing what would come up next. Unfortunately, it wasn't executed very well. You used a lot of straight lines to draw out the character and it sort of looked like a "connect the dots" puzzle. Try using the paint brush tool and draw out the character. Using this method, your character will look much more smoother and realistic and would pertain to the overall flow of the animation.

The music fitted the animation very well. If you would have incorporated any type of loud music, the animation would have lost it's relaxing and soothing effect. You did a great job selecting the music. Overall, you did an average job on this. For your future projects, try adding a background, use the paint brush tool for smoother objects and characters and to strengthen your Frame-by-Frame techniques and try to make the duration of the animation a bit tad longer. Other than all of that, you did a good job. Good luck on your future submissions.

Summary Points: Poor graphics, there wasn't a background, objects and character drawn too "jaggedly", very creative and nice overall concept, great selection of music, too short.

I love your style

This was a very artistic submission, and one that I really enjoyed. It's nice to see something that doesn't rely on pretty graphics, or crude humour, or excessive violence. Instead the entertainment comes from a feeling of relaxation.

Graphics: They weren't great, although they did fit the style well, with the slightly shaky lines. Maybe try and smooth it out a little in future, with less straight lines and a few more curves. Also the shaky effect, though nice, is a bit much in places, so possibly tone that down a little. Also a bit of colour would have been nice, even if it was just some kind of swirly effect in the background. The black and white was good for the style, but it was a bit boring.

Style: this I really liked. Artistic, and original. A nice little progression that finished in a loop. My only complaints were that it is a bit short- I've seen a few submissions that have done similar things to this, and on the whole the longer and more random they are the better. Also the loop didn't quite match up at the end, which just damaged the effect slightly.

Sound: a great choice of music. I have always loved the acoustic guitar. You lost a few marks for not matching up when it looped, but other than that it was perfect.

Very little violence (not a bad thing in any way), interactivity, or humour, but it doesn't need any of them

Over all I gave this a 3/5. What is there is nice, but it just needs a little bit more to it, and touching up in a few places. It has real potential though, and it certainly was enjoyable to watch.

Artsy and good

I know most people don't really like the artsy and random type movies, but I'm a great fan, and this movie is one of the best I've seen on the genre.

There were many good things about the movie, my favourite being the way everything seemed to just flow into each other, like some weird 3D painting or sculpture.

The music was very good, and well suited to the overall movie. The one thing I would say that needs improving, is the looping of it. It seem a to cut out slightly, but I can see it probably was a had song to loop.

The graphics were very simple but for an arty type movie were quite good. I really liked the squiggly line movement in bodies. But in saying that it could be improved on a bit.

All in all a very nice piece of Flash Art. Keep up the good work

Sorry, man.

I get what you are going at, but try to make it more detailed next time. Noone will want to watch if it is just black lines. The animation was fluid, I'll grant you that, just make it more "attention-grabbing" in any future animations of this sort.

I liked it very much

It's very artsy. The sound messed up a little. I would love to see more flash by you, especially like this. It's very modern and creative.

5 out of 5.
