Cloak is a short animation about a few cloaked figures causing havoc on a dark night.

Please leave a review.


good start

first off thank you for giving me credit for the song. now about the animation, good start I must say needs some work and it could be a bit longer. I do hope to see more as you progress as an animator and maybe you will use some of my other songs for your next animation :) keep up th good work

Not a bad animation. Better artwork and story development would help to give you a better score. I hope this passes judgment though, you've got a cool concept here.

Thanks for the review! And yes, it passed judgement! YAY! =D

Neat in its own way

I thought the animation was pretty good, not the best but decent. If I had to make recommendations, I'd say use some more dynamic camera angles for your scenes, the majority of the animation played out like a side-scroller videogame. And add a little detail to the landscape you used, or make it darker to suit the time of day.
But anyways, it was a bit eerie, the music and sounds really helped out in that regard. Hope you make improvements.

alright, camera angles, I'll keep that in mind for next time! Thanks for the review!


I hope you plan on making a sequel. I mean, there is no explicit storyline but, there is room for something interresting. You need to work your backgrounds. I would have enjoyed a longer movie with some kind of storyline because, seriously, there's room for it! Where do they come from? What are their goals? Is someone gonna try to stop them? Continue developping the idea because dark cloaked people gathering at night to do evil can be a real hit: it's mysterious and interresting. But there is surely a reason why they do so and I want to know. The video left me hungry for information so please go back to your storyboard and send a related video which would be longer and more explicit. I would overlook the backgrounds if the story was good enough, but right now, I can't give you the passage note.

First of all, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review, I really appreciate it.

I actually am getting ideas for a sequel, I started the animation with just the idea of a bunch of cloaked figures hurting things and being all spooky. I then looked at the animation and thought it was pretty good compared to my usual work, and thought of the idea of expanding it, so I came to Newgrounds to see what see what you guys think.

I'll keep your advice in mind when working on cloak 2. Thanks again!

Pretty cool and freaky

I had to watch it twice to really understand what was going on, but it was interesting to say the least. The animation was alright for the most part, though I mainly enjoyed the close ups and the guy catching fire. Sound wise the music and laughing was dead on. I liked it.

I'm so happy how well the music turned out, because it was mostly a coincidence how they worked together. I didn't make it, I had completely forgotten to credit the author when I first submitted it, it's there now, though. Thanks for the review!
