Just beautiful.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pretty funny for something short.

You deserve more name recognition on here, and it's nice to see something with actual creativity. In addition, I really like how you took the silent film approach on this one.

Graphics: When it comes down to it, the animation is well done in spite of your style. Plus, I really loved the facial expression of the prisoner when he found out about what today meant. It seems that you draw with a mouse, and that does have its uses. However, if you don't have one, I recommend that you save up for a tablet.
Sound: There wasn't any music considering the silent film approach that you took. On the other hand, I really like how you used those old typewriter sounds. That added to the grim tone that was present.
Content: It is not easy mixing grim and funny together without the results being a total mess. What made this funny was the aforementioned facial expression. It may not be laugh riot, but still funny. Of course, while it may be nice for a cartoon so short to be good, it could have used a bit of elaboration on why that prisoner was sentenced to die. Then again, at least you made an original flash as always, which is commendable.

What's good about this:
-Great animation for a style that many consider out-of-place for animation
-Funny facial expressions
-Fitting sound effects
-Dark comedy done right
-Small filesize

What's bad about this:
-Could have used a bit more story development, but the humor made up for it.

Overall: Wooden Sneakers, I think another ten from me was needed.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

one out of ten!

By leaving it black and white you added a beautiful, almost poetic atmosphere in this deep and dark, but still oddly calmishly brutal post-classic, pre-futuristic masterpiece.

Very interesting

Interesting concept. Nice art style. Sound could have been better. Sounded like someone typing in an office or something. Very short, but said a whole lot. I liked it.
