UPDATE: Thanks for daily 3rd! Also, I threw a NG reference in there that no one seems to have caught. That or it wasn't clever enough to comment on (which would make sense too).

For Movie Jam 2...

The theme we chose was 'Too Scared to Enter'.

Yes, I know. It's a tad late, but when you work in retail, they don't give a shit about animation deadlines.

Anyway, this is probably the most retarded thing we've ever done. Enjoy!

The graphics were decent, though the choice of pencil/line tool for the characters made them look very awkward. If you don't have a tablet and have to use the pencil/line tool, that's fine, though I'd suggest that you at least add varying line thickness to give it an idea of depth. The scene where Mario's on Yoshi looks awkward because it's simply too thick.

The varying angles were nicely chosen and the direction was decent and compensated for the awkward-looking graphics. Everything was nicely executed.

Considering the time you had to do this, the animation was alright, though there were some flaws in it that could have been easily fixed. The tweens could use some easing to make it achieve a more natural look, otherwise it just looks a little mechanical.

It's also worth noting the short music at the end which was very fitting and suited the humorous theme of the movie.

Overall, it was okay for what it was and could use a few minor improvements. Good luck in your future endeavors.

what ...the f@#$ was that


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The animation, though good, still could've used a little more work
The joke was funny
And I like little nuances like the Castle Crasher in the corner

If you were to submit this a second time with a little more work put into the animation, I would rate it at least 4 out of 5

Overall, good job
