first of i love your first storys...
but you have sevrol conflicting story lines and foolish asomtions
1 in your other storys you talk of the emrald tablets, i herd that in a cuthulu book man! you say you get this stuff from "books" but you still leave us with many questions
2 you give us two ideas at once, you give us the "be a good person" thing but then you turn around with the "it dont really mader in the end crap" give us a happy neutrul between the two
i want to live and iv got lyme!
i hope this gives you good ideas, dont meen to be harsh, best of louck
and sorry about my spelling
i wasnt watching the series cause i was thinking spirit science
While you do have an interesting philosophy, you aren't really a philosopher/theoretician. On the other hand, this isn't as preposterous as Spirit Science.
Visuals: Look, I don't believe that everything should have perfect animation with high-bitrate music, but enough to get the point across. However, there was hardly any character animation except for one or two scenes. Of course, I really like your layouts. If you're going do a weekly/monthy flash series, you better be really good and quick in order to make it convincing.
Sound: I really like the voices and the music on this, so no problems here.
Content: The only reason I watched this just so I can critique it. While you do have an interesting philosophy, decent direction, and a nice pace; it wasn't much to offer. I mean I appreciate that you're trying to prove that NG has potential beyond entertainment, but the way you're going about this seems uncompelling. I've seen flash movies with this kind of filesize that had much more in terms of content. In other words, this feels like a step up from Chester Kwan and Marsoupskin.
-Nice layouts and voices
-Somewhat interesting philosophy
-Hardly any animation for a four meg flash.
Overall: Jordan, I hope you put more thought into the animation next time unless you want to end up like certain has-beens & Never-will-bes? Here's a six from me.
I'm thinking a little bigger than Newgrounds personally. I'm not making this for the newgrounds community, but rather, the global community. This video is for anyone and everyone who is willing to see it, which is why it's also on youtube and a number of conscious media network sites.
You're right in that the animation was more still frames than full animations, but doing it that way allows me to make many of them and keep my message without going super intense in animation. Honestly, i don't feel like it needs that much extra animation work, because the message is there and that's whats important. No amount of extra animation would make the message more powerful, at least, not at this calibur of video.
Wisdom at its finest
This was wonderful and made me feel peaceful inside.
I practice meditating daily and noticed a lot of health benefits. Still overwhelmed by the mind but it's "improving", if I can describe it in that way.
"Let's think about an answer and then we'll be at peace", no
"Let's not think", yes
Thanks, glad to see the world is slowly but surely becoming more and more peaceful and in tune with nature
Well said and well made.
This animation is top notch and the message is very enlightening.The excellent voicework makes up for the absent humor which is obviously unnecessary in this case.The animation is also well done even though at some point of the clip,the characters have mouths while other times,they do not.Hope that there will be more of such high quality production.
