Cloud Soft

A 30 sec cartoon for our animation course at university. It's about a man that gets butt raped by a toilet, then sprouts wings and flies away... All metaphorically of course, in order to sell toilet paper.

If the movie lags at all, try watching on YouTube instead, link is on the title screen.

Nicely done

I will need to agree with the other reviews, in the fact that the "story" (more like screenplay) was indeed difficult to understand, even after repeated viewings.

Everything lands nicely, but to re-use the shot of him grabbing the toilet paper creates the image of the person "re-attempting" to get his business done, and not use another brand of toilet paper. Perhaps an establishing shot of each brand (him holding brand X first, and after the butt violation, him revealing Cloud Soft) would have clarified this. Just my opinion, but that's what this field is for.

Again, I agree that it needed a little work, but it's still a great flash. Ignore the jerks :)

Left me with too many questions

I liked the combination of 3D and 2D animation. It seemed to work quite well in my opinion and you did a good job at combining the two styles. The animation itself was also fairly well done, even if it was fairly short. It all just seemed to fit together quite nicely.

The sound, especially that which was applied to the 3D animations, seemed spot on for the most part. The voice over at the end didn't seem all that clear to me though. I actually had to watch it again just so that I could hear what was said.

My main complaint is that I can't quite work out what just happened. The plot made no sense to me and I just generally didn't get what was going on. What were the robotic arms about? Why did he grow wings? What was the point of him flying off the toilet? I was just left with too many questions.

I think if you were to work more on creating a good plot you'd be able to make something that I'd enjoy watching.

The claws represent a crap brand that feels like razors when you wipe, and the latter brand sends you to the clouds because its so soft. And thank you for your well written review. Although I am pretty sad that people aren't getting the visual metaphor :(

AWSM! but...

WTF? there was like NO planning on this was there? great animation, TERRIBLE story line ( It's sad cause i have no idea what it would be called ) and I know you prob had a lot of effort put in this but work a lil on the story line next short mkay? and don't be a jerk to people just cuz they don't get your suposable COMMON GOLD.

If you are giving this submission a low score, please offer constructive criticism that will be useful to the artist. The review space is not a place for you to act like a total asshole.

SkoopleFloop responds:

well, we had 30 seconds to make an advert for toilet paper so we did a big visual comparison metaphor. The claws represent a crap brand that feels like razors when you wipe, and the latter brand sends you to the clouds because its so soft. Theres your planning.

And if your referring to the guy who I left a rather unpleasant response to, he had it coming... he must have realized his mistake because he deleted his review, what an asshole right?

thanks for the review :)
