It seems you wanted to put most of the art effort into the backround. And it seems you'd rather make hair sway back and forth than put any effort into the actual mouth syncing and details on the face. I don't mind that, it just makes it seem very out of proportional when everything else is perfectly drawn. You seem to have an attention to detail, but only for certain aspects, and this would be fine, but you chose to wrong aspects to pay attention to.
Animation was very choppy too, it seemed that some parts were very artistically and well drawn, and others looked like I was looking at a skin colored stick figure.
I can't really feel sorry for any of the characters either, their personalities often fall flat to what the actual forshadowing of the story is showing. It's like watching stick figures die. You can't really feel sorry for stick figures because they lack any personality and character, traits that make someone human and have human feelings. Which you obviously forgot to put in. Were you too busy animating the swaying hair?
The Nazis are so evil they bombed the SHIT out of those empty fields.
It was sweet...until they started talking. It would have been better - and more effective - if you had just had the music playing in the background.
Also, the character's lines were overly forced and badly written.
Good animation, but...
...that's about it. The lines were cheesy, voice acting unskillful. Why the hell would planes bomb an empty field? The girl tripping was cliche.
I hope you are true to your word...
Becaue I was not impressed with your pilot episode at all. The first episode looked EXACTLY like a romantic movie, and this was what you said not to expect. If it plays out in a timeframe during WWII than the only other two types of movies it could be are a war type (action/adventure or and/or tradegy) or a comedy type (Making fun of hitler or something of that sort). So as of now I am thinking you will incorporate a lot of action in the next installment or a lot of comedy, but I wouldn't think of you to blend the two, for the movie would lose its calibur. I'll hope to see that you can change my mind about this moving being another typical, run-of-the-mill tragedy-to-triumph love story.
