decent animation and since when do snow blowers sound like chainsaws lol. and why the hell is this in the flash portal? good luck to you in your future animations. i hope there better than this.

ToonCastleTV responds:

Yea I couldnt find a better sound effect , why so long score ? ='( you make king david cry

Nonsensical in a very dull way.

While it had a promising opening, the boy and his animated movements looked very rigid and could have benefitted from a couple extra transition frames to make it look a little smoother. The music also was a really poor choice and needed something more Christmas like to accent the ending better.

Aside from that the progression of events makes no sense at all. He uses magic to summon his coat only to blow it up, only to have it reappear after he jumps into snow? Someone playfully throws snowballs at him only to throw a working snow blower for no reason? It was clearly trying to be funny, but you can't just kill a kid and call it comedy unless you do some build up or mislead the audience into thinking otherwise.

If you're going to put as much time into frame by frame animation as you claim you have, try making sure you're animating something worth watching next time.

ToonCastleTV responds:

I agree with you about the transition frames. Also why shit gets so fucked up was kuz I originally framed out the running sequence in his tshirt and forgot i made him wear a jacket and was like fuck it... IMPROVISE. And yea, this was really a test to see if people would like it, I have better ideas and anims now

Not too bad

Does need a little work, but I was satisfied at the end. I understand completely how hard it is to do frame by frame. I don't own flash, but I animate at school. I Just think you need some more practice with transitioning and use of colors when your animating. The humor is a little dry but wasn't horrible.

I still don't understand why it's under best of all time though. I'm confused on that part, no offense.. :/

ToonCastleTV responds:

lolol didn't realize that either, I upvoted this movie a lot kuz im a bastard like that ^^


I get it but it doesn't seem that funny, animation was decent and I feel like it should have been funny but it was too short and he died stupidly.

ToonCastleTV responds:

This was all i had time to do man.


I get that you're still figuring some things out, but I just don't understand why this is showing up on so many "top rated" lists. Are NGers orchestrating a massive ratings troll today or something?

I'm not an animator so I can't speak to the difficulty of frame-by-frame animation, but you just have some tweaking to do, like the perspective change as he leaves his house, the sound quality, and the smoothness / pacing of object movement.

ToonCastleTV responds:

Dude. Did these issues really bother you this much you had to give me a 3? In any case, there is going to be a re-release of this submission in the near future.
