This is my entry for the final round of NATA 2012! It's been fun!

The theme was "the final fork in the road." For those having trouble seeing how that fits with this movie, remember that the fork in the road is for Death and not Calvin.

First, some things that went wrong. Because it's all frame-by-frame, some of it is shaky. Oops. The way I coloured it is weird and the backgrounds aren't too detailed. The sounds mixing isn't too great, but that's partially because I got my friends to record their lines at their own houses, so the quality differed. Now, things that I thought went well. On the whole, I think the frame-by-frame came out nicely and I'm proud of it. But ore importantly, I branched out in terms of story. This breaks the same formula I've been using since the novice round, and I didn't have to panic and change things last minute like I did last time. It actually sort of worked, so that's nice.

I doubt I'm going to win NATA because I'm against Emrox, but NATA was definitely a great experience. Just compare my open round entry ("Splice of Life") to this. I definitely got something out of this all. Expect me back again next year!

Eh. The voice acting was mediocre in my opinion, esp. from death. But that aside, it was great!

Really awesome concept. The humor was really well done. The only thing I can say is the voice acting was a little weak. Death's expression and inflection in his voice could be improved, I think. Just my opinion, so take it as you wil.

Did anyone else notice that Death's voice sounded a little bit like Stewie Griffin's voice at times? More so in the beginning. It would have been cool if at the end of that Calvin woke up in the hospital...because it a sense it was like he was trying to cheat death.
