Jack Astro

Share Collapse

The film follows the exploits of Jack Astro who is traversing the Galaxy claiming planets for "The Federation" with his trusty flags. Jack finds that some planets and their inhabitants are easier claimed than others. The 3 minute 2d animated film weaves between moments of quiet comedy and blistering action packed fun and beneath the cartoon mayhem you will find a simple story of environmentalism.

Nice animation, but I really don't understand the message. Why would he kick the alien? Isn't he an explorer?

Thanks. The idea was that he is claiming the planet for "the federation" and the little alien is getting in his way of claiming a new planet.

I liked it lol. Sound effects kind of reminded me of old cartoons like Tom and Jerry and stuff.

Loved the twist with the living planet.

Great stuff! I don't know about those retro sounds, but they are fit here I guess. And a bird flaping sound doesn't match at all. But anyway the story was cool and the ending was also cool. Animation was perfect.

Cool, I like it. The interactions between the astronaut and the alien were funny.
