I'll give you credit for 2 things...
One: making the most out of simple vector animation through the use of masking.
Two: keeping the file size under 10 mbs.
Other than that, I'm not sure if there was a "message" here. The artwork was gimmicky, but decent enough to support a message if you chose to work one into your piece. I realize you may just have been going for a "slice-of-life" type of plot, but even then you could have included a bit more interesting occurences -- or rather framed the occurences in your movie in a more interesting way.
Perhaps you were just trying to make a statement of how boring or dull our daily existence is within the confines of a city by constructing it predominantely out of the muffled colors of cardboard, foil, and denim. Or perhaps I missed the point entirely.
Regardless, the point of it all, beyond "having fun with flash," could have delivered a bit better. Content is almost certainly the aspect of your artwork that could use the most improvement.
Still, a visually pleasing submission with good music choice. I particularly liked the subway sequence.
Keep up the good work.
yeah the subway sequence was awesome, ziwon and biskits have crazy talent. CRAZY!
there wasn't really a message. but at the same time, we weren't just going for 'hey lets show people us having fun with cardboard in flash', the animation, I thought, was very disciplined, and really what we were going for was a city, from the various scenes. it was just peaceful. thats what we wanted.
although DR clay's rain thing was pretty sweet. it had a story.
I dont think it shows that our lives are dull, just as I dont think it would show that our cities were dull if we went out when nothing was going on and just looked around.
Quiet, not dull.
It was boring and overated I honestly think you should put more work in your flashes, you guys should stop spamming the portal!!! Stop posting Goastes too! I am tired of you and therefore 10/10!!!!! ;)
I haet revUers liek u becuz u alwys voet zro cos it dunt maek sens!!!!
great animation but....
is it just me bein blind, or is there no plot?
if im wrong just tell me
nope, there was no plot. you're right. it was focused on the animation, haha.
glad you liked it.
When i read the thread post, i thought
this collab would turn to shit.
I have been proved wrong.
Good job to everyone, it was pretty frikin' rad.
yup. you were WRONG. WRONG!!!
starting a collab like this was kind of a gamble, people could have not understood the premise, or just not have been interested, but luckily we got a pretty good crowd and all of us were able to have a lot of fun with it.
glad you liked it :)
Not bad, but...
The idea is really basic and nothing's really going on. The animations weren't smooth at all, in fact, some of them (not all, just some) were bad. The were pretty boring, there could've been some more creativity in textures or different colors (colored cardboard paper?). What I'm trying to get at is: it's boring. Don't get me wrong, you all have talent, but you definitely could've added some more work to it.
If I lived in a city made of cardboard, I'd walk around with a radio pumping jazz like, ALL THE TIME. just imagine how awesome that would be.
myself I thought the animations were quite smooth, but hey, different tastes, different standards, its all good. :)
