[Early Work] Match

Author Comments

I was inspired to make this after I viewed Dan Paladin's animation "Carrot". Looking back at it now, it seems I just replaced his carrot with a match.


indeed, the candle was smoking...

and what a blue party.

but your drawing is funny and the chase scene is very good.

but the true intent of this review:
take five was a very good choice....(your fades and fx´s are nice too)

nice job, dude.

Thank you very much, I love that track and I def wanted to use it for something. I enjoyed working with it for this flash animation specifically, because of all its twists and turns.

Been blamming lots of movies lately

It's pleasant to see one movie out there that's better than blam material. I am a hard marker, but I don't think I am entirely unfair. This one is definately worthy of a place in Newgrounds. It's a little artsy for my tastes, but it's a keeper.


why would the candles be emitting smoke if they have yet to be lit? i mean, the kid hasn't blown out the candles yet right? why else would the match be running away unless the candles hadn't been lit yet? (unless i missed something, in which case, disregard this comment =) )

but yeah, good animating and a nice choice of music (went very well with the animation)..

danbell responds:

I dunno, have a little imagination. I can't mouthfeed the audience everything, haha. Maybe the candle went out really quick before he blew it out, or maybe he didn't blow it out just right and he had a hissy fit. But I can see how it may confusing to people. oh, and thanks for the compliments at the end, i appreciate it.

I definetly like your style.

Man, I was really diggin' that jazz music you had as your backround. The good animation was a plus. Storyline make sense but was a little weak at the end. Seriously, it was original as hell and that's kind of rare.

Word up, that song was called "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck. I recommend you listen to the whole cd if ya liked that track.

danbell responds:

clever... but the rating only goes up to 5, so it looks like you couldn't have had 6's all across the board, mwahaha...
