I was in an experimental class where we were putting together a show to go on the local WOUB and I was doing various graphics work like for lower thirds and these three animation. I'm not going to explain the whole show but they basically we where doing the first three episodes and they were themed as Coal, Wood and Rivers respectively. and I did a piece of each ep.

I had pretty much free rein with them, from concept to execution I just did whatever... and now I'm putting them here for you guys to all check out! :D

OK ...

... but it was a bit tedious. The coal rap was a bit over-long but ok over all. The wood animation was unoriginal and the river was a bit weird but probably the best actually. I liked the visual style at the start of the river but it seemed really plain as it went on and the other flashes were just too plain visually. The voicing wasn't perfect and the talking animation in the river didn't seem very in-sync. But they definitely did feel like "whatever" so you did get your point across. It's really interesting how your flash is already dividing people. Some think your genius and others aren't so sure. Overall, I just don't think it's entertaining enough. Maybe it's the timing ...?

I loved it, each section had something interesting and appealing about it, I loved the color selection, and I thought the animation style was fun, like the sketch of a fully done animation, and i kind of dig "sketchy style". The rap was very funny and unexpected, the tree's expressions and personalities just fit with their names, I thought that was specially awesome. My least favorite part was the dialogue with the fish, tough I really loved how the animation started, and the dialogue was a bit funny ,but not enough to compensate how slowly they were talking.

I liked it, probably I'll fav it.. it's not something I see very often around here.

Each one of those were absolutely genius and I think it's a shame your score isn't several notches higher. This is going on my favorites list. Loved the coal freestyle, and the hypnotic tree chant, and the deadpan river scene. These people are being way over analytical of something that's SUPPOSE to be pointless and silly. Tubetastic.

Nice ideas, but overall animation lacked A LOT. Voice acting needed a lot of work too, yet I say again, ideas were fun.

Sorry for short review, my brain is melted :C

I liked it, creative enough to make ppl lol. Only thing, maybe at teh river, less volume on speech and more on music, wouldnt give it a more mystic enviroment?
