Even though I have a job ( where I'm extremely overqualified and payed garbage),
All this that you are describing in this video seems very familiar and hits home.

Its a common problem with people in their 20's (definitely for college graduates) in the US.
Know that you are not a piece of shit and you are not alone in feeling this way.

Anyway,
I like your drawings and designs.

The animation needs more frames or smoothing.
I'd say this is more of an animatic (animated storyboard) than an animation.

The lip sync in the opening scene didn't match up well with the audio you used.

I'm definitely going to have to look up some tutorials on lip syncing! XD
Thanks for the feedback!
I hope you find something that pays better soon! :S

Or Newgrounds or somthing. :P It'd be the dream!

Entertaining narrative with unnaturally artistic visual storytelling with it. Feels like it doesn't always match what you're saying, or time in at the right place, but they do entertain; intrigue; surprise. The long love letter and conclusive couch session was pretty creative too. Nice work.

lololololol
Yeah I figured my animations would start getting oddball the more I did em. I get bored of repetitive actions really fast, so it was inevitable shit was going to get weird! Big thanks as always for the great review and I'll definitely work on making things match up more between the audio and visuals for the next animation!
(Talking about a crazy ex next XD)

All the best,
Graham

I can really relate to this. Right now, I am unemployed and its hard for me to find a job. I just finished a animation demo reel. Also, that last suggestion as I tried making videos on Youtube and its pretty tough. However, keep up the good work man and I hope you find a job too!

Yeah I've made $0.05 CSD on youtube so far ha ha ha
I'll check out your demo reel if you have it up!
Thanks for the watch and we'll both find work. I gotta fund my videogame addiction and attempt at adulthood eventually XD

All the best,
Graham

Good stuff! I really enjoyed this. I'm not currently unemployed, but it was definitely worth the watch!
