This is my entry for the Holiday 2009 Flash Off!

I know this doesn't have a whole lot to do with Christmas, or the holidays in general, but I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a cartoon to this song. Hopefully you find it enjoyable, and I will see you all in 2010!

By the way, if you like the song you can download it (and many more) for free on the site listed in the music credits on the left. Check them out, they're all pretty good.

Happy Holidays!

i just got back from watching your turning test and im kind disipointed but the i guess its because turning test was really good

very funny little flash

it diddnt have very impressive production quality (such as art and design), but the music selection was superb, and you really wanted to squeeze a flash into the holidays, i could tell :)

the reason i said the production wasn't too great was because of the mouth sync, and the choppy outline quality on the characters...

the mouth has to be at a static part of the face to look somewhat authentic, and yours seemed to tween itself too freely about the faces...

but those nit-picks aside,

great submission :)

Great song

~ Animation ~

The animation really doesn't quite get better than this. I understand that the movements that you had were quite simple compared to many others, but they were done very smoothly. The mouth animation was very good and everything else was great.

~ Graphics ~

The drawings here were done pretty well. I enjoyed the backgrounds and the style that you used, but there was one small thing that stuck out to me. When the character would move his arms the black lines wouldn't be connected. Looked like a minor mistake that just went unnoticed.

~ Story/Content ~

It was a good idea to make a story out of this song. You did a great job on the music video. The only thing that I can think of to make it better would be to show a quick series of events leading up to his feet falling off. Such as him getting dressed to go outside, walking, getting lost, etc... Then his feet falling off and him crawling to the doctors. You could even do a quick scene afterward where he is trying to sell his shoes or something of the sort.

~ Audio ~

So this wasn't your song so I can't complain about it too much, but I really didn't like how the music drowned out the vocals in the song. This could have been improved greatly, but like I said it's not your song so I'm not going to sit here and review it that in depth. (I guess I did already lol)

~ Overall ~

A good submission all around. I wouldn't have minded seeing some more story like I mentioned up above. Good job though.

I liked the note it ended on, there was nothing more to say at that point, and I think it works. I do agree though that throwing in more of him actually losing his feet would've been a good thing to do, I'll remember it next time I'm puttin' a music video together.

Awesome animation and graphics. Very smooth, and the lip-syncing was pitch perfect. As Haggard said, some more varieyy in the scenes could have been used, but it was still well done.
