Flimbo's Cake

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Okay, I literally threw this out in a day. It's quite old and short, but I'll think you'll find some redeeming qualities in there.

Poor Flimbo is bored. That is, until he finds a cake. Will he get to it and eat it before someone finds out?

Sorry bud, looks like some people can appreciate facts such as this being my first animation and that it's a short and not meant to be on par with a literary epic. Your loss, I suppose.


Well I really do like the animation. Over all I liked it.


eat-at-joes-guy responds:

Thank you. It was a first attempt at animating, years ago. I'm glad you got something out of it. ^_^

Is a lie!

It is nice how you admit that this was not intended to be anything special. I can certainly tell that this was only made in a day as the animation really needs work. The main problem with this is that there is just no final joke or ironic punchline. I do not know about this "Flimbo" if he is supposed to be a recurring character. Cakes are always delicious, but the main problem is that there is nothing out of the ordinary here. I did like the color effects so next time work on having more of a story or at least a joke.

This was primarily a college project, introducing us to flash. This explains why it's not story heavy, but there's enough here to be something watchable. Thanks for the review.

oh noez! he took the cake!

Pretty funny.

constructive criticism: You could work more on your style. But then again this was an old flash. Saw kinda many tweens. Correct me if im wrong. I recommend using as few tweens as possible (with a few exceptions). Frame by frame animation looks much better. Anyways Gj!

eat-at-joes-guy responds:

Lol perhaps I forgot to mention, this was an assessment piece for the first year of my animation course. We were meant to demonstrate our use of tweens specifically. I fell asleep during that whole semester because I had already been using Flash for seven years. I do have some better frame by frame stuff in the works. I just put this here as an experiment. Perhaps you'd prefer my older submissions a little better. Thanks for the review. ^_^

Not bad

Worth a pretty good, cheap laugh.

Little dude got denied.

eat-at-joes-guy responds:

Yes, he gets denied a lot of things. Like food in general, a bed, medical and dental, etc. Thanks for the review.
