Hey! First submission to Newgrounds! I had to do a short video project on a career for my second term careeer explorations class. I chose animation and started to make an animated video for it. Please leave reviews Enjoy!

Good, from what I saw...

Your animation skill shows a lot of promise, but I couldn't sit through it all. It just got kind of boring after a little bit, and listening to Chad mispronounce words no one's ever heard before got kind of annoying after a little while. I'm just curious why it seems like you guys did all your recording in one take; if you mess up on recording, you can always just rerecord things. One or two mistakes is alright and even funny sometimes, but when they're every other line, it just gets annoying.

What animation there was was really good. You're really good at doing a simple walk cycle. Just work on the recording. Get your own mic if you don't already have one; they're not very expensive, and recording software is free if you know where to look. That's the only thing I can think of is that you were borrowing a mic or using a school's mic or something; that's the only reason I can think of that you'd have limited time to use recording equipment, which it seemed like the case was.

I'm going to work on the audio problems, but for now I'm glad you enjoyed the animation. Thanks!

It's really hard to hear what they are saying... especialy the blond guy.
when you make voices for an animation, make use you talk LOUD and CLEAR!
Otherwise... subtitels could allso have been a great help, and doesnt take much time to make.

But exept for you voicses, it was allright....
I like the FFA music in the background.
The charaters was funny illustratied.
It was an nice histrory lesson..

But... the Jokes were kinda lame.. I'm sorry :(

MrMacro responds:

I know what you mean about the voices. It gets harder to hear as the music goes on but it's probably because of the speakers I have. Testing the movie I can hear it fine but on other computers it get pretty bad. Live and learn. Thanks!

Not a terrible start...

....and here's some constructive criticism.

Try and avoid bad microphone technique (sorry Chad). The start was alright because they were moving around but then you got lazy and they didn't move during the last 2/3. If you're too lazy/rushed, do something simple to keep attention up. It could be as dumb as a toaster dancing in the background before it blows up.

Also, and most importantly, if you have a boring segment in a film please avoid adding epic music. It just highlights that the scene is terribly dry.

But you yourself have a good voice for animating and I wouldn't suggest abandoning making more flash movies.


MrMacro responds:

Thanks! Chad was a little off on the mic (and so was I) but probably because we had just a couple of takes to get the voices done. It was great for the class but I agree that it got boring near the end and all around it was dry stuff. I just wanted to see how it was recieved on Newgrounds and get tips on the actual animation.

Its okay, but it wasn't funny..
Maybe it wasn't meant to be funny, but still..
The sounds might be a little louder and overal it is kinda boring.

MrMacro responds:

It wasn't very funny but showing it for a school project it had to be more fact driven. I noticed the music on other computers but on mine it runs fine. Sorry for the inconvienience. Thanks!

Well if either of you could use a dictionary or google and look up the phonetic pronunciation of the words you so horridly failed at saying, I might have actually finished watching this movie. As it stands, it got off to a slow start, and droned on for what seemed like a week about nothing of any importance. This may be fine to present to a class, but Newgrounds is about entertainment. This movie was neither informative or entertaining.

But the animation was smooth, so you aren't a total loss :3

MrMacro responds:

It was for a class project so having good animation is pretty much the only thing I really wanted to make of this. Thanks!
