Gave you a five because....

...number one- there aren't enough people doing these
number two-the arrogance of another reviewer who will not be named

Good job man.

thanks man means alot to me


The animation was pretty decent and the voice acting was tolerable so it was pretty good in my opinion

I saw a notification that you reacted to my review (haven't been on Newgrounds in years) and it's been so long that I don't remember seeing this or writing this review.

Looking at this with a fresh perspective, this is really charming. I love the quality of the old camera, I love the stilted movements of the claymation and the novice voice-over. Maybe it's nostalgia for the old days of internet animations? Either way I love this and hope you've been well. I'm going to go and see if you've made anything else in the past 9 years.

Claymation rules.

I remember making claymation vids when I was a kid using one of those bigass shoulder mount camcorders that u put a full size vhs tape in and the pause button. Its fun, I might try it again sometime with the newer methods.

hahaha yeeah its pretty fun


I've done some claymation myself. The audio of the characters can make or break everything. Reread "getto89" 's review. If he or she had not said it, I would have had to.

Some other things, 1: Get some help. Someone can shoot the frame for you without getting clay on the camera or trigger. They can also provide another voice. 2: Create an actual character out of the clay, not just a clone of the other guy who is a different color. 3: GET A BACKGROUND. All you have to do is take that crappy, fake wood, good-for-nothing paneling and paint the back side of it like it is a canvas. For instance, paint a picture of a yard. Clouds, sun, blue sky, green grass, house, drive way, etc. Once you have done that you have put your characters into an actual location.
Good luck and have FUN!:)

not bad

Pretty promising. I think as you work with it more your camera work will be more consistent. Some of the frames / shots were messy. Also maybe not speaking so close to the mic or saving it at a more quality bitrate would help.
