Walk in the Woods Walk in the Woods

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Well Executed

In a stroke of genius, you've somehow reinvented the poop joke. I had no idea how brilliantly entertaining it could be to watch a rabbit and a bear engage in a fatal race by expelling fecal matter.

Megaman: Codename X Megaman: Codename X

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Needs a lot better sound work

Your graphics and animation overall were pretty nice, even for a sprite flick. However, your sound effects and choice of music were, I felt, poorly implemented. It was extremely distracting listening to background music that I recognized out of context from movies. I'm more impressed by original work, and while your animation was certainly a class act, I felt your music selection was less than that.

I want music that goes along with YOUR animation, not music which goes with an entirely different movie which you happened to like. It's good music in its own context; it just doesn't fit with your flash.

As for sound effects, I felt they were poorly implemented in the sense that they seemed forced and often out of synch. When the Megamen were shooting, it felt like there should have been more than a wimpy "zing" to accompany a charged, devastating bolt of plasma. If you're going to use sound effects, they can and will make or break your presentation.

Cheers To Warhammer 40k Cheers To Warhammer 40k

Rated 2 / 5 stars

needs work, but promising

Simple replay, no button needed. Enter this in the actionscript panel on the last frame of your movie:

stop();
this.onMouseUp = function()
{
gotoAndPlay(1);
}

That should work

Bush Speaks #4 Bush Speaks #4

Rated 0 / 5 stars

Crap

Ok, so once again you've taken a video and added your own low quality, unscripted, crappy voiceover?

First off, I can't believe how Bush Speaks #1-3 even made it past Judgement... I could have sworn they all got blammed unless you kept uploading them until one got through. There really is no talent or humor evident in any of these movies.

Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

Not good enough

You need lots of work on several things. Obviously, your artwork needs improving. Above that, however, you need to work on your storytelling. There was kind of a plot, but it was boring and 1-dimensional.

As for your sound, I highly recommend against using Linkin Park songs. I like LP just as much as the next internet idiot, but they're REALLY overused to the point which I almost always lower a video's score which uses it. If you were making a music video, that's one thing, but I'd recommend finding something from the Audio Portal instead.

You've got some ideas, but you really need to work on your technical skills. Why don't you try and remake this from scratch before creating a sequel?

TNT: Watch me Explode... TNT: Watch me Explode...

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Needs work

It isn't great, but you show promise if you keep working in Flash.

Obviously, the images aren't in synch well with the sound, but more importantly is your sense of visual style or (pardon me) lack thereof.

For example, each letter of "T.N.T." is emphasized in the song. However, not only does the video fail to incorporate this, but "TNT" as a word is grouped along with the rest of the verse. It just lacks a certain flare.

If you're going to use text in a music video, you have to make it interesting. As with the rest of the graphics, it needs to be cool, edgy, dynamic, fitting, or some combination.

I gave you an honest 2/5 for effort. Keep working.

Great animation

First of all, your animation style is superb. Second, I just wanted to compliment you on your excellent voice work. It's really nice to have an animation with voices that don't clip and sound like garbage.

Soul-Driven: B1, Chp. 00 Soul-Driven: B1, Chp. 00

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Almost Brilliant

This is how a trailer should be. I actually want to see the finished series now. Great character and costume design.

The only suggestion I have are with your subtitles... make them in a smaller font and have them stay on screen longer. I would prefer not to have the subs at all, and maybe fade in/out with text across the trailer, but you gotta work with what you have.



Baker Blvd Ep1 (Part3) Baker Blvd Ep1 (Part3)

Bad

The sound was so horribly out of synch which made it a pain to watch. Neither the dialog nor the video lent anything to the movie. It pretty much had no redeeming qualities, which is why you get a big 0/5



Oh Jesus god no! {CC} Oh Jesus god no! {CC}

Rated 1 / 5 stars

Boring

You have some decent artwork... That's it.

All the art and animation skills in the world don't mean crap if you can't put together a decent submission. Funny shorts are fine, but the Portal isn't a place for you and your circlejerking "crew" to submit short, crap entries which consist of little more than "shout outs" that no one else cares about but you and your buddies.

No talent for form or compositioning went into this movie.

1/5

Ah well, it was a quicky. My other submissions are a lot better (don't view Super Mario Idols though, I made that ages ago)
