My Problem with Shmups

Have you ever wondered while playing one of those space shooters what the imaginary crew on the inside of one of those massive boss ships ever do? Well, it might play out like this.

*Update* Thank you, everyone, for the Daily First award. It's great to know this movie is being well received by the audience. And thanks to the fine folks working at Newgrounds for the Front Page.



Why on earth is this under judgement? did I click the wrong one? This Is funny, and the animation is pretty good quality. What's up?

Very good

I never did consider what the hell they were thinking... or the enemy ship was just some kind of alien or other organic being (like in Life Force). Anyhow, pretty funny. I enjoyed it.
The drawings were pretty decent, the lip syncing was good. The characters lacked a bit of liveliness since you were mostly just tweening their limbs around, but I think you did it well overall with how you made the bodies move and made the captain do gestures.
There were two main problems with the art. The lack of shading and the lack of detail in the enemy ship (such as computers and other fancy, high tech looking things). Other than that, very good.

Thanks for the critique, it's really important to me. Glad to know that in between all the astonishing praise this is getting, there's room for improvement. I agree that I really do need to work on shading and doing more with the animation beyond "tween this to here smoothly". Happy you enjoyed it, at least :D
