As previous reviewers have stated, this is fantastic style with no substance. I'm assuming you're in high school because of that fact. If this is the case, then good job; just learn how to create art instead of things that just look cool.

LOL one short word-Lovin' it.

I feel sad to have to give this a low review knowing how much work went into it, but I agree with what the previous reviewer said, that it lacks any substance, and if we're being totally honest, the quality of the sketches involved were not very impressive. The whopping two and a half minute live action intro also detracts from the work as a whole, and you might have been better served just jumping right into the page flipping. A skeleton of a story would have also helped a lot.

I'm giving the 2.5 stars for the effort and the ability to create a complete and cohesive piece, despite the uninspired nature of it's content.

This is a perfect example of style over substance. I really liked watching it to see what kind of stuff you came up with, but I feel the substance of it all was really lost. I know I know...what am I expecting? Shakespeare with class notes? No, but I feel like the doodles were very random and the product of just killing time, and not a product of thought or anything meaningful. Of course that's just what I thought, and maybe I'm asking for much more than just to be entertained. But even at a mere 5 minutes, I really strained hard to keep watching. But, at least you had fun and it's getting shown and recognized in different outlets, so I commend that fact. I look forward to whatever else you make though. If you can stay focused enough to see this whole project through to the end, you must be really dedicated.
