Well done. The boy's movements, mug-takes & reactions all do a splendid job of setting the stage and foreshadowing the inkblot "past." The repetitive, rhythmic bounce of the other children on the playground also generously contributed to setting a mood to the piece that hasn't been effectively captured for many years. Some of the prior reviews posted have missed the point of this piece by complaining about the qualities of this piece that are its greatest strengths. Sure, anyone can "draw" inkblot characters, but it takes a lot of talent to bring them to new life. It was apparent that you did your homework, and put a lot of heart into this piece.
Fucking great! I hope you win this year!
I've always enjoyed your style put to animation! This is a pretty nifty cartoon!
Though, I noticed the last couple of scenes weren't as smoothly animated as the beginning. I'm guessing you ran out of time?
WEll done a great entry for the NATA open round, I'm pretty sure you'll go through to the next round for sure. Mice animation I really like the rubber hose effect, and the nice little homage to Disney's steam boat willy at the end, job well done.
I freakin lov ur style of video, i like cartooning but i dnt know how to make animations, cause i would lov ta make stuff that as good as u do... but ill stick to comic strips for now until i find out how ta animate.
