Seemed pretty painful for the first while.. but the end was just so worth it. Even the weird clapping and whistling at the end kept me laughing. Nice work
The awkward sucking sounds at the end really got me. Haha!
Hey Jon, I'm gonna be honest with you here.
I really liked the animation. I REALLY LIKED IT. And it made me laugh! I liked how the dude's face looked and you nailed that smug smile which reads like "I can't believe I'm making money with this haha". My favorite part was the "sponsored by Audacity" that made me laugh so hard hahaha Great job.
And that's why I think it's SUCH A SHAME ABOUT YOUR SOUND. COME ON MAN you've got me writing in CAPS here. I understand that maybe the intro title's sound is up because that's part of the joke. But seriously man why ruin a good animation by blasting your audience's ears like that. That's disrespecting your audience and really it ruins the whole thing for me. I exited the page the first time i heard the leach sound because it was so frickin jacked up in volume that my first instinct was just to make it stop. On top of that it was just a disgusting sound. I've found a few animators who use this technique of making everything quiet and then putting something on the maximum possible volume and it has become a pet hate of mine.
I can't stress this enough dude. Don't f*ck with people's ears. It's not funny it's just treating your audience like trash! It physically makes me angry. It's like someone coming up beside you and invading your space by shouting in your ears. I'm taking off a star for tough love hmph
Good job though
Glad you liked it, and thanks for giving such in-depth critique. I agree with you entirely, I think that whole "funny ear rape lol" stuff is done to death, I wasn't intentionally trying to do anything like that. The sound was fucked in this for two reasons, mainly-- I was rushing, and i'm shit with audio editing. I was afraid I wouldn't have time to do NATA because of exams so I rushed and wrote/voiced/did all the audio for this in like an afternoon. A lot of the loud clipping stuff comes from my current recording setup, which hopefully I'll fix in the future but yeah. I'll put more time into audio in the next round and in future stuff-- I knew it sounded amateur but I didn't realize it was THAT distracting from the final product.
LOL I never laughed so hard xD
made me chuckle :3
