How To Basic - Animated P

Its a parody of that youtube channel How to Basic


I don't think people understand how good this animation short really is. It's a great animation showcasing the principle of anticipation, it being one of the 12 basic principles of animation, with great execution. However, I do see where they're coming from when they say that the animation is lacking, but that doesn't make it a bad short. It's really just a well-done basic animation.

my question is how is this 2 stars?!?!?

This is pretty accurate to what he does lol. You have captured his essence .

Keep in mind, I'm not trying to be mean, I'm only trying to help: It was pretty boring and simple. Now, the basic rule for making videos (animations especially) is that you don't need to be overly complicated or convoluted to make a good one. But I think that you might have taken it a bit too far. Audiences don't need a whole song and dance number to be entertained, but for those who don't get the reference, this is really like watching almost nothing. The end is surprising, but I think most people won't get it.

thanks for the feedback! i made after watching likeof his 10 videosand laughing and not knowing why it would be so popular, i never considered anything else after that. I wondered how i could make sure people get the joke but then got carried away with the whole simple idea i had at first and just dropped it and made this hoping people get it haha. I'll defiantly take your feedback into consideration

Well is simple but for a good video parody this is ok.
