Out of Order 1

A young girl accidentally ends up in the ruins of a chess-themed city. She is immediately confronted with the hospitality of the remaining denizens but also gains a companion who is as eager as her to escape this place.

This movie was sort of an unpolished beta-version of the story I'm working on, made in 2012. Don't expect new episodes but rather a reboot!


Edit: Fun fact: I did everything with a half-dead mouse, just bought a tablet.


Kmau, I was blown away by this cartoon. I had no idea that I would be providing my voice to something of this magnitude of awesomeness. The shading, the angles, the story, the setting, everything came together perfectly. I am honored to have been a part of this, and hopefully look forward to working together in the future.

Hey you blew me away with your voice as well!

And here I was afraid not a single good animation was coming out today! Amazing!
The personal choice of art was amazingly well done! Congrats! The backgrounds, character design, animation was great!
The story telling, well... I didn't actually get what's going on in the whole movie... An apocalyptic world where outlaws in Charlie Chaplin outfit are everywhere collecting the loot of a dying airship.
The narrator at the beginning lacked the ability to put the emotion needed for what the supposedly main character was about to do (commit suicide), and it felt more like Michael Jai White trying to tell a story to his newborn son...

Other than that, it was amazing! You get a 5, because it deserves the spotlight, but a 3.5 on the review, because of what I truly think about the movie.

Good work, and waiting for the next one ;)

I wish I could've stretched it a little bit more to allow the story to breathe. On the other hand that's some unsanswered questions for later episodes.
The narration in the beginning was supposed to capture the characters' developed apathy for his own situation he has been in for so long, hence the thought of dying is actually a relief. I'm sure it would be hard for any voice actor to catch this emotion without - well, showing emotions.

Thank you for your helpful review and I'm glad you liked it overall!

Front Page Material! Congrats! Loved it!

This. Is. AWESOME! I love it! -0.5 Stars for the little bit laggy animation - keep up the good work!

Yeah that comes with animating on 3s/4s, although I like it when you can still see the multiple pictures a movement is made up of.

the animation quality is awesome.. its smooth and very cool. i totally dig it.
