i am sorry but was not impressed not gonna be jerk and insult you for no reason ,but this film gave me no feeling no humor , and i didn't even learn anything. So for this video i give you 0 for nothing benefited and nothing enjoyed.

the "this film gave no feeling" part was a valid point, but as for it not being funny or educational it wasn't supposed to be either of those things

You have a very creative mind and skills. I love the art work and the story was amusing.


Very humorous.
At first i thought this would go the way of the Loony Toons short about the singing frog, but still a reminder that greed and avarice is never something that should cloud the basics of life.
Good momentum not the best but certainly worth peoples time.
Keep it up!

That was random yet adorable all at the same time! Basically the plot was a bit serious in terms but then it turned very light hearted.... until the end. I found it just simple and cute. Style was very simple and bland in design yet it had vivid life in its own right, I especially adore the blue songbird in this short. Audio was fair and decent. I especially loved the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 game sprite song called "Casino Night Zone" which is a very well memorable video game level, but I digress. This shorts tale was of a very bitter and saddend, down on his luck old gentleman who appeared to want to kill himself by jumping off the bridge at the beginning (Hopefully I'm right you can correct me if I'm wrong my friend)? And then when he finally took notice of this friendly blue songbid brought him happiness, wealth and recognition! And in a ironic twist that I noticed its said in old timely legends and old that blue birds were suppose to grant happiness so I reiterate its very ironic that the blue songbird "did" bring happiness. Until it and the owner's untimely demise and as quoted in the end "The bird's ghost was never at peace". Talk about having bad peripheral vision for that blue songbird, Ouch! I'm going to bestow you a 3 in a half out of 5. And a 3/5 in voting power. Keep practicing, creating and contributing on here. I hope you've enjoyed this review. Good day.
