"BZz" is a short minimalist film.
The cuts and the animation are synchronized to
"Flight of the Bumblebee" by Rimsky Korsakov.


The story while being quite general and expected in it's own right, doesn't need to be anything. The real majesty of this piece is the fact that the music syncs up with the video. That alone and at art style makes this a fun little flash. Keep it up man, it's some good ass work.

Thank you for the kind words and for the valid points : )

I thought it a cute little story, there isn't anything really bad to say about. I also liked how the spider's legs synced with the music.

Strange how that overly dramatic music went so well with that animation. :) Simple but effectual! Bit weird you can't really differentiate between the flies though, as car as gender goes, considering it's a romantic kind of short and all. Not that flies look all that different to the common eye, but with this kind of cartoon it'd seem like the common approach to maybe add some eyelashes to one, or differentiate between them by color, or some of those other gender-based stereotypes we use for such purpose.

I liked the animation though! Quick, methodical, with a clear protagonist and flare for drama.

Thanks a lot for the creative input.
You have a good point, the girl should be more recognizable.
I have planned another short with this concept and I will definitely redesign her.

Yeah, it was cute... kinda fun too.

Don't really know what to advise for improving anything, particularly... It is a minimals focused animation, and for what is essentially a music video, there could be something more to the visuals for adding energy to the story, but that's a style question (if you care to bother that way) and certainly not a knock to your quality.
You kept in time to the music, so everything sync'ed together well and the animation was still fluid.. so great marks there. The action could fit the sound as long as no one bothers too much on the title of the music played... lolz...
Another style question to think of, (in case you're interested, or just like the tune) ....
A few years ago (relative term) a band called "Manowar" basically rewrote the "Flight of the Bumblebee"... They performed it on guitars, and (true to the metal tradition) renamed the piece "Sting of the Bumblebee" in case you have the time to look it up. Just thought you might find it interesting, depending on who you might talk to about parody or even just for personal ... research...
Anyways, breathe, relax, and don't forget to keep on keeping on... :o)

Thank you for the constructive comments!
Your thoughts are very welcome and you are right.
When I made this short I had just discovered the work of Saul Bass.
I heard the "Manowar" piece, it's awesome.
