Good, but needs work.

The Animation was the strongest point of the piece. Complex and fluid use of 3D animation, attention to detail, and great blending of 2D, 3D, and still frame animation. Loved the variation of artistic style.

The Voice Acting really distracted me. Almost every single line was oversaturated hammed up and turned into hyperbole. The writing was fine, but, save for the introductory radio, both characters voices sounded incredibly overacted, and phony.

The Premise, the fable-like tale of prejudice and judging books by overs, was nice- well written, clever dialogue that could have been capitalized on a little more.

Lastly, the ending. It seemed to either be rushed, unfinished, or an incomplete story. There was no real resolution. The only indication that the film ended intentionally were the still motion frames and the shift in art direction. There was no closure to the plot- I watched the film again just to make sure it didn't cut out early.

You know what you're doing. Keep up your work, your artwork and writing is great, next time, you might want to hold more rigorous auditions for voice actors.

Cheers,

I love the style and the music!! Good work!

I feel like I can't really judge this properly, because it's obviously just part of a larger animation. The innocent monster who freaks everyone out when he tries to make friends is hardly original, anyone could see it coming and know what kind of jokes to expect. The art and sound are top-notch, and I can't help but be entertained no matter how overdone the jokes are. Also, there was surely a better way to end the preview, it just gets cut off abruptly.
