Polar night. New Year and Christmas animation short

Author Comments

This is an English version of my cartoon. Character lip sync might be a little bit off, as this version is dubbed from Russian to English.

Spent hours of work, drank barrels of black tea, drew 5280 frames. Initially, I thought I would finish it by New Year but things went to hell... So this is a super late New Year and Christmas present for my friends. Hope you will enjoy. The cartoon is short, the plot is super simple. Watch this stuff, comment and share and you will receive my eternal gratitude. Creation of this piece was real fun.

Крипота то какая, крипота! XDD

The ending took it from a 3 to a 4 real fast.

Great stuff.
I thought the story was great. Simple, but funny and the dialogue kept the story moving forward and keep me entertained.

I thought the vocals could have been a bit cleaner.
I liked the acting but thought a little more passionate was required.
(if this is in a second language though, bravo and i shut my mouth, i can't speak one properly.)

The soundscape and sfx were great i thought they were pretty spot on.
There were a couple issues with camera shots zooming in and changing angles a tad too sharp which is easy to do until you become more familiar with timing shot changes.

I thought the backgrounds were great. for me the highlight of the short.
I liked the character style and the bendy arm animations, most notably the typing.

i thought this was really good.
Looking forward to the next one!

Thank you! Yep, it's my second language, and I dubbed it myself and I know it could be more passionate =) I was very tired at the time and a bit drunk =). I will try to provide more quality with vocals in other pieces, maybe attract some voiceactors. Thank you for your feedback it will really help me during the production of other stuff! Yeah, backgrounds took AGES to make. I guess I will simplify some things next time trying not to bring down the quality of backgrounds too much.

Oh man! I was gonna give it a 4/5 until the ending came along. So this gets a 5/5! I was not expecting that at all lmfao! Way to go for scaring the hell out of me XD! My next favorite. :)

Gheng responds:

Thanks man! I'm really glad you liked it!
