The Seafather

Author Comments

I believe in America.

America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family.

She found a boyfriend; not an Italian. She went to the movies with him; she stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago, he took her for a drive, with another boyfriend. They made her drink whiskey. And then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. When I went to the hospital, her nose was a'broken. Her jaw was a'shattered, held together by wire.

She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again.

I went to the police, like a good American. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison - suspended sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool. And those two bastards, they smiled at me.

Then I said to my wife, for justice, we must go to the SeaFather.

So... what's the link?

I'm not sure I get the link between the two pieces - the fish with legs, standing on a beach of some sort and the lines from The Godfather, aside from the mumblings, but at best this is a poor impression of Marlon Brando, to say the least.

The fish itself was reasonably well drawn and the lip sync does need some work to get it all together well. From the outset, there is no real background to speak of - if you're going to do a scribbled picture background, do one like that, but zoom out, to give more of an impression of detail in the piece, that way it looks a lot more effective.

Nice joke

I'm reviewing the flash, not the author's comment. Even though I love the Godfather. Nice quote, right there.

I'm afraid a lot of people wont understand this. They wont understand that the author's comment is a quote from the Godfather, and won't see that the SeaFather is the Godfather, and see how this is funny.

The art is simple and looks fun and childish. I like it. I recently reviewed a piece of art that reminds me of this, it looks pretty good, absolutely. I like th emultiple colours, sort of sloppily done, background.

There is a bare minimum of animation, but at least the mouth is well animated. And the fish looks weird and funny, doesn't really remind me of the Godfather as he's portrayed in the movies.

And I can't make out what he says. I can sort of guess my way to some of it, btu I don't really know if he even says anything, or if you're just mumbling into the mic.

Seems like too little effort went into this, could've been really funny. An entire parody of the Godfather set in an underwater world could be funny, absolutely.


-It's such a sad story that I read in the author comments. This kind of thing happens several times every day in the United States and it's really a shame when bad kids get set free because of their age and how the judicial system is starting to crumble.

-As far as the actual flash animation I thought the background shading and layering was well done. It brought a sort of contrasting feeling to it since it was broken apart into two basic colors. Interesting way to draw the Seafather but if that's how he really looks then i'm assuming you did it in his likeness. The lip-synching could use some work to line up correctly and some subtitles would be nice since I can't understand.
