Amusing Build-Up, At Least...
First, I have to ask you... what happened to warning #4? Did it get fired for telling the Iraqis that their regime was winning the war? Oh, no, sorry. That was Peter Arnett for MSNBC.
Everything here definitely is solid. You have a basis for your humor, and if nothing else, an eye for detail. It's actually pretty funny in some spots.
Unfortunately, this flash isn't going to do anything but lose people. Though the characters are very distinguishable, the graphics are pretty rough and difficult to look at. The voices need a whole pile of work as well... was that George W. Bush, or Gary Oldman as Zorg in "The Fifth Element?"
I don't think anybody sees Fox News as the Zenith of all journalism, but the fact that you take a shot at them (as all liberals do when nobody's looking) pretty much shows the radical point of view that you have. Instantly, everybody knows where you stand and that you are not a neutral or objective thinker. In all honesty, 30% of the people who view this are going to be able to relate to you in one way or another, while half of that will agree with you completely.
I'm sure there's a job waiting for you at the New York Times.
See, now i can appreciate this one. It was constructive, even if it didn’t agree with the movie as such. i thank you for your input. Certainly i agree with you on the audio. i’m only one person and my vocal range is not as resplendent as i would like it to be. And on the other hand i do agree with you on the roughness of certain parts of the animation. For example the gallery shot where Epi is scratching her head: that makes me cringe. But i had already spent a month of evenings and weekends on the piece. Also, understanding that this was my first effort, i realized i would get better with time. [There are not enough hours in the day.]
As a note, future animations will be drastically shorter. This will be more for my benefit than anything else. For example, the next one i’m working on will be a little over a minute.
Without tipping my hat too much, i love that this reviewer is from the Technology Corridor in Northern Virginia—within shouting distance of The District. OK, he’ll have to get on I-66 for a while, but nonetheless he’s close enough.
Other things: Yes the humor is rather inside The Beltway. And largely i consider the NYT to be centrist. Sure they have the occasional liberal bursts, but really they’re not the pinko, commie, traitors the Ann Coulter would have people believe.
