Tears of Joy.

Before i begin writing the Description this is my first attempt at a Short animation with meaning.

The blob featured in the video is trying to chase his dream of being a high speed vehicle, flying and speeding around the world. To attempt this he threw himself extremely fast forwards to experience it while dreaming in his head. Even though he may get hurt, He has tears of joy. Lessons shall be learnt.

Honestly, It's a little artsey for my taste, I guess.... It feels like Either I don't get what message your trying to convey and get across cause I'm too stupid, or It's actually just a short random clip your trying to add meaning too, even though it is soundless and in my eyes, has no feeling behind it... Meh it's not terrible though.

MrGingee responds:

To be honest, It did start out as a Blob being shot across the screen, I then starting thinking, well what if i add some sort of a story. The story i dwelled upon was about his dreams, and since I was animating it, I thought everyone would understand, But after re viewing multiple times, and due to all of your Constructive feedback, i can now take that away and actually go back to the drawing board with more ideas.

Huh, short, sweet, to the point, you shouldn't have to explain the plot though.
I'm feeling pretty conflicted about this movie. I liked the style, I liked the transitions, I just didn't really like how the story was unintuitive. Use the media provided to tell your story.

2.5 rounds to a 3

MrGingee responds:

I did use the media "Provided" to tell a story. What i was provided with was my knowledge, and my own Creativity. I Also had Flash, and Newgrounds then gave me free will to upload, and Write a description. Was any harm done via you reading the description?

That was cute and very descriptive creator comment friend. And this is your first foray into the field of animation? You've done well to me. The style is bland an simplistic in design yet you've threw in a few metamorphic moments into it (as you've described the reason for the blob's metamorphises). This version I'm reviewing lacks audio, but audio or not its virtually the same. A nice little short to show your fundamental understanding of flash animation. I reiterate you've done quite well friend and should be proud! I'm going to bestow you a 2 in a half out of 5. And a 2/5 in voting power. I hope you've enjoyed this review and keep practicing and creating on here. Your doing real good! I hope you've enjoyed this review. Good day.

MrGingee responds:

Thank you, I was actually starting to get slightly annoyed that nobody was giving me criticism which is obviously vital from a creative standpoint. With the insight you have gifted me with, I will continue to create animations, but only when i buy a graphics tablet which should be soon. I should probably also learn how to add a loading screen with a start button. But with time comes greatness.

Thanks once again.
