Hell of a Job

EDIT: Wow, guys. Thanks for voting for my short and thanks Tom for featuring it on the Front Page.

Animation by Marcelo J. Nader

Voice & Audio by Patrick Seymour

Layout Design by Kyle Bunk

Original Story by Stephen Gillian

The characters don’t have names, but I like to call the little guy “Stan” and big red “Devlin”. What about the tortured old soul? Pssh, I don’t know. Let’s call him “Craig”, for now.

I don’t know if this will become a series or not. I think I’d like to make several 5 second experimental animations for my next thing.

...Rarity huh...who knew the devil was a brony...anyway nicely animated, gave me a chuckle.

The ending should have shown him holding two pitchforks.

I think I've just found the answer to ridding people of their fear of hell.I know the creator probably intended for this flash to be the way it is,but I just don't favor this.Maybe that's because it's too short and simple for my taste.I try to enjoy a story for everything it is,but compared to all of the others I've seen on Newgrounds,this just didn't cut it for me.I might be being too harsh,but I don't feel like this is even worth reviewing.I'm sure at least one other person will disagree with me,and I respect their opinion.Part of being a reviewer is being open to others' points of view on a certain matter and having to take how they see it into consideration when stating how they themselves feel.I'm sure there are plenty of people who enjoy this.I'm just not one of them.

I don't think it's too short.

I am actually very pleased to see a good and funny short on the frontpage. This things are getting uncommon as time goes. It seems that the longer projects tend to hold the place.

The pacing is perfect. Every scene is essential to the story, every scene is a surprise, you can't predict what's going to happen, and you don't know when the animation is going to end because every scene is funny.
The longer the animation, the less you are likely to strike this balance.

This short is refreshing while being classic. Most excellent work !

Why, thank you. That was nice. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
