Birthday's aren't always fun for EVERYONE...

UPDATE - Front page! Awesome. Thanks to NG and everyone who voted.

Something a little different this month. The Sketched crew made this short cartoon as an online birthday card and we decided to post it here.

Feel free to pass it on to any friends or relatives you know who may have a birthday coming up.

Nice idea.

I liked the idea behind this movie. And found it quite funny. Especially the candles having different personalities. Voices were well done. A solid 9 from me.

Really well done!

Love the story, really clever. Maybe could have been a bit longer with some extra gags, but overall the animation and design were pretty good.

Thanks. We had a bit of a time constraint on this one because we wanted to make it in time for a particular birthday. I wish it could have been longer as well but I'm glad you enjoyed it none the less. Thanks for the review.

Certainly a great birthday card

I thought that was pretty darn funny. The idea was great, and most of the jokes got a laugh out of me; however, I would have to say I laughed more at the jokes that only a personified candle could say. For instance, it was entertaining to hear the candles question if they should negotiate with the people or that "they'll never take me alive" (mainly because it's a candle speaking instead of a human, as you'd normally expect it to be), but it was hilarious to hear their reactions to being blown out since you just can't get those kinds of jokes with human characters. You can tweak the jokes to fit human characters, but they just wouldn't be as good as with the candles.

Thanks! It's always great when people are able to articulate what they found funny about our work, it gives us great notes on what to shoot for in the future. Thanks for the great review.

Now the next time I have a birthday I am going to feel bad blowing out my candles

sirjeffofshort responds:

Don't feel too bad... I'm sure they did something to deserve it. Haha.
