Happy Pirate day!
Animation by Sgtkillstuff
Voice acting by Rockmonix
edit: Fixed the sound problem


Short, to the point and great!


Similar to graphics in Southpark but not quite as crisp and sharp. The background could've been more varied, providing some additional depth to the story.

Animation was quite smooth although the mouth movement didn't exactly match with the sound. Lip sing was a bit off. Overall not a bad job on this term. Nice job on the bunny btw. Lol.


A very original concept. Lmao at the end. Very funny storyline. great jobn in terms of originality and story. One thing i liked most was the smooth transition of both voices and animations when the old pirate guy started to suggest names rapidly. good job.


The voice rang was great. good job to Rockmonix for the voice acting a very well thought out piece. nice work.


Great work on the whole thing. Good graphcis, great stroyline, a funny script and great voice acting got you the ten you deserve. Nice work. :)

Thank you. Rockmonix is a great voice actor and script writer, I had a lot of fun working with him. I'm glad you liked it.

Very funny, with an interesting aniamtion style

I enjoyed many things about this movie, particually the animation style. It had a cool construction paper style to it. The lip sync was a little off though. Plus the ship looked kind of plain as well as the background.

The script was very funny and I found myself laughing several times during it. What with all the hilarious refrences and the very funny ending. The wonderful pirate voices also well contributed to the humor.

The ocean sounds in this movie were really cool and fit well with the pirate theme. Plus the voices were very nicely done and very funny.

So all around I thought this was a great submission for pirate day. Good sound effects, Good animation and good dialogue. But poor lip sync and background design.

Thanks! his is the first time I have ever tried lip syncing and it is really one of the hardest parts of animating. Hopefully I can practice and make it better in my next submission.

Hehe, lol, nice job!

Seems like your first submission, and it's awesome. You did a good job on it, and it's almost perfect.

The graphics, as the other reviewers said, fit excellently with the theme you were going for here, and although sometimes they feel a little roughly drawn, (the clouds and plain background are an example), graphics aren't really a big problem in this submission. As Fro said, though, the zooms got annoying. Animation was OK, but not that smooth at times. Also, the lip-syncing, as stated in the other submissions, was a little off, although still, the subtitles you did here were great.

The concept was pretty original, and the humour is what got you most of the points in my review. Not unbelievably funny, but I did laugh quite a bit at the end, and there was a nice variety of different names and reaction to them, and I chuckled a little on almost each one. It's a short submission in all, but you can't take the blame for that, and if the joke was lengthened any more, it would start to get boring. Still, a little animation at the end after some fade transition showing the boat setting sail with the crew members all wearing Pink Fluffy Bunny costumes would add to the humour a little.

The voice acting was awesome, and although the voice in all could have been a little louder, the subtitles took care of that and voice acting was excellently performed. I liked the ocean sounds in the background, they made me imagine the scene much better, but I think you should add some other effects like seagulls in the background or something. Just a suggestion though, since the ocean sounds did a nice job to portraying the scene of pirates.

It's a nice little animation, especially since it's your first submission, so at this rate, you'll turn out to be a great Flash animator. Keep up the great work :D.

A little muffled

It's funny, but there are sadly some limitations to the piece overall, which is a real shame. The voice work is decent, but there are still sound quality issues which require some work with the vocal artist to sort it all out properly.

When nit comes to the animation side, as you're a lot more involved in that side of things, your animation is quite simple, when you take into consideration things like how fast the lip sync moves and the fact that the two pirates don't actually move around that much does take away from the piece a little. Putting something like having the captain walk behind a screen in the cabin would have been better, when he came back dressed as the Dutchman and the bunny, just to keep people interested. Perhaps also a chest that he goes through for props, like the Pirates of the Caribbean DVD, for example.

These ideas are a few steps for taking the animation forward and as a result, you will end up with a much improved piece. Good luck.

Thank you! I could have made it a lot better, but I didn't have a lot of time to finish it and there wasn't really a long enough pause in between the names for me to really add anything special other than a quick change. I'll make sure to make my next submission more interesting though.

(title in work)

A nice submission overall. The graphics were kind of textured almost so that they looked almost aged a bit. With that it fit the theme of this well. The voice overs were well done, I bought that they were pirate voices. The jokes were good too. You had some pop-culture jokes in here as well, which is something you don't see all that often. My only gripe is that the lip syncing is pretty well off at times throughout this.
