We were originally contacted to do a music video to "With This Ship" which was soon replaced with this song "Like a Brother" by the Australian Band "The Basics". After months of not knowing what the hell to make to the song, followed by months of hard work this was the final result. The band enjoyed this video and we hope you enjoy this video too. :>

Also any australian viewers, look out for the video on "Rage" and "Video Hits" in the not too distant future.

Nice video!

Cool video, and Im liking the widescreen thing.

Seeing how this is a large flash, I wouldnt mind a little progressbar for when it loads.

Excellent and stylish!

This reminds me of the following:
A: Robot on Robot
B: 50s and 60s cartoons (in a good way)
I'm surprised that this hasn't made the top 50, but the score that it has is still worthy of celebration. Now with that out of the way, onto the review:
Artwise, it is well done and very stylish. To quote Bruce Lee (I don't know if he actually said that): "When one has no style, one can fit in with any style." Even though Hans Van Harken has a similar drawing style; the style in this video was much better due to the character designs used in it. Then there is the actual animation, which is a great blend of tweening and frame-by-frame. Reminds me of the earlier frame by frame stuff in the portal (2000-2002). So, there are no complaints from me in that department. I also loved that song you guys used; it matched the cartoon so well that it would rival the likes of Thriller.

What I liked about this:
-Great song
-Great animation
-Cool-looking robot

What I didn't like:
-People will accuse you of copying off of Baron von Brunk and Hans Van Harken.
-No subtitles.

Overall: For doing an excellent music video for a band I never heard of (and a kick ass one at that); here's a ten.

An amusing combination of styles.

I must say, the way you messed around with the color scheme for this animation is something that, in my opinion, is a big achievement, aestethically looking at it, it was a new and refreshing style, and at the first second I started watching this, I knew it'd be good, and didn't dissapoint at all. Actually, I expected the style to be lost a lot across the animation, considering how hard the character placing would be, and I was luckly wrong. The style kept on and on for the whole movie, having the exact same constitution from begining to end.
What I am not certain of is how some parts that are relatively easy to do in frame by frame with some effort, were made with tweens, for example, the dinosaur's eyebrow should've also had some sort of weight over the skin below of it, I'd recommend that when making expression shifts, it's better to look at the mirror and later do it frame by frame, since when frowning, it should also change how the upper third of the face. There were quite some riduculously tiny flaws like this one, but they aren't really meningful, but when played together, it does catch the eye and looks really good. Congratulations, this animation was incredible, you should probably keep experimenting with the colors, it puts to display how artistically talented you are.
