Created from pre-production to post -production in 16 weeks. The premise of the beginning of an original story inspired by cartoons and anime as well as actual events from the animator's life.

Audio may be out of sync at first depending on your internet connection and resolution of the video. 720p or less seems to work fine, or perhaps its just me.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I liked it! It was good. I felt that the sound and voice quaility could have been better, but I could hear what was going on, so that's what counts.

I look forward to the second episode! Keep up the good work! :D

IcySideStudios responds:

Thank you very much! I did what I could, though next time I will record in an actual studio space so the audio shouldn't be nearly as rocky in the next one.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

The animation wasn't bad for a solo, but the story needs some work. It had a definite climax, and such, but the story wasn't gripping. It was predictable. It has potential. You could have had such a cool and just incredible part when he got his powers. It was too quick moving. Not as much conflict either. It was good, and I know how hard it is to animate this sort of thing alone. I'm working on an anime, myself. For the next episode I recommend putting up a collabinator post for a backup animator to help out so you can focus on the story. Overall good, and I'm looking forward for the next episode.

IcySideStudios responds:

Yeah, I see what you're saying. Originally, in the written story there was a lot more going on and a lot more build up, but due to time constraints a lot of the good stuff had to be cut out. I definitely won't cut out nearly as much of the good stuff on the next one. Thanks for the feedback, I'm already hard at work making the next one. Hopefully I can get a backup animator if not, I am confident that my skills have improved enough for me to produce a better episode without one.

I'm deffenatly going to be watching this! For a pilot it's really good. Needs a few things to be fixed here and there but it's still awesome. (Might want to fix the audio a little ^-^)

Thank you very much for the support and feedback. This was all very hard to animate, being just one animator and all. Yeah the audio was something I wasn't aware of as an issue until after uploading it to places. I had the use of a professional grade mic, but it was only lent to me, so there were some parts that needed to be re-recorded, and I no longer had the good mic. I might still try to tweak the audio some with what I can do though. The next episode will have less flaws though, I guarantee it.

Pretty good for a pilot. Can't wait to see more! XD
