Sorry for the off audio sounds. My phantom power mic busted and had to pull out my old one in order to record the song for the end of this film. I worked really hard on this toon and hope that you will enjoy it and rate it deservingly. Please please please review this so that I will know what to work on for my next film. I do appreciate the positive feed back that I have received for my past films and hope that people continuously enjoy them more and more.

I don't even know why. I would like to see some more detailed animation but as long as you keep it similar to this kinda thing I'll be happy with it.

Good film, but could use major polishing.

PROS: Nice story and an excellent job of bringing out emotion in a skeleton. The sound was good throughout the animation (barring the end, which you had warned of before hand anyways... did not affect score).

CONS: Maybe it was on purpose, but there were a couple of scenes where the basketball moved pretty erratically. The background was fairly bland... the passing clouds were great, but they just sort of zipped on by and the sky went immediately back to being bland again.

SUGGESTION: Instead of having the ball move to simulate it floating through the air, maybe move the background instead? Seems like it might be smoother! Add a little ball rotation in and you'll be working for Disney in no time! ;-)

I hope this review helps, I thought the core of the video was very solid. Keep up the good work!

ADgoat responds:

Actually your review does help. One of my main goals as an animator is the smoother the animation the less viewers have to think about the animation and the more time they can focus on the story, so I will absolutely take your suggestion on scrolling the background instead of tweening the ball in motion. I absolutely agree on the backgrounds and regrettably thought of it before actually exporting the film, but decided to skip fine tweaking it due to the fast scene changes. I guess I've been caught red handed. lol. Well, again I appreciate the review and hope you continue to watch my other films and review them as well.

Vereh Nice

The long and rapid moving color shots made my eyes bleed, but other than that, I loved it :D The story is one most others can relate to and it was humorous.
I gave it a four out of the 5 scale and I'm giving it a 7 out of 10 :]
Keep up the good work!

ADgoat responds:

My goal in cyber life is to make eyes bleed!!! j/k. Thanks for the review

really good flash

I really liked watching this flash video, it was a nice concept and the music was really good. great job on the flash.

P.S, I don't know if you already know, but you spelled playing wrong, just thought you should know.

ADgoat responds:

Yeah, sorry about the spelling errors. I spent a lot of time putting this film together and when it came time to actually release it, I dropped a big fat turd on my post editing. Glad you liked the film.
