Movie does a disservice to the music
The Scatman song is great, but the movie does not do it justice. There's not enough things moving to it, and some bits felt like random animations with no relation to the song.
John Scatman was a guy who stuttered and decided to make music out of it. "Scat" is a jazz term in which the human voice are used as instrument playing sounds (beep boop etc). The song is about overcoming your hardships the same way the guy did (he was ashamed of his stuttering, but made a signing career out of it).
Not only this was great, but I think it was an excellent idea by the Korea tourism board. I wish you would submit your other works here as well for others to see (the Cherry Filter videos on your site are very fun!), but I'm not sure they will be fully appreciated by an US audience. Anyways looking forward to number three! Good luck in the world cup!
You've managed to tell a great story in 15 minutes. That's a fantastic accomplishment. But some parts were confusing, and some transitions did not make much sense.
It was not very obvious why the guys were fighting in some kind of dream-space (cyberish-looking) out of a sudden. First-time viewers (like myself) will have trouble understanding who's who. The voice acting could have been better too, but I understand you did with what you had at hand so you could get your vision out. Last but not least, some of storyline is very cliche'.
But thanks to the cliches, you get the point anyway. So overall, you do get what's going on. Much more importantly, you've managed to give in 15 action-packed minutes as much content as many animated series deliver in several 30-minutes episodes. For that, you deserve the highest scores, and my critiques aboves are only in hopes that your next one will be even better!
Great animation, you should definetily continue
That was fantastic animation. Your backgrounds are very good too. I strongly encourage you to continue! If you feel you need new script ideas you could get help from somebody on the forums; or animate a short story that you like. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you enjoy doing such a good job.
that was actually very good!
I was put off at first by the drawing style... but there was a lot of other good things in there. The story was a bit random in the end, but I can tell that you put a lot of effort into this. The 3D backgrounds were blah but I give you bonus points for trying to do everything yourself! I have no doubts you will keep improving. Waiting for the next episode!
So weird and so great
Fantastic job. Making it like a silent film removes the needs for voices, yet it gives it a distinct feeling. The plot is kind of random, however the rest of the flash was so carefully made that it makes it brilliant and stand out from the rest.
I didn't feel like writing a script, I wanted to have it done shortly, too. So, I ended up with this short film. One which has scored with the hearts of many! Thanks for the review!
Keep up the good work!
That was very inspiring. It's hard to blend history with fun, but I found you did a good job at making something that is not boring to watch yet communicates important facts.
You could have talked about computers... I wonder what Edison would have said if he saw computers, flash, and lollerskaters. :-)
Fantastic voice acting
That was not only a great movie but the VA did a fantastic job!
The Naruto references felt a little out of place in Megaman X's universe, but well, why not. Can't wait for the next one!
That was great
After a few seconds I thought "oh no not another stick movie", and then the collab started to seriously own :-) All artists have done great bits, good job everybody!
People - get Flash 8
The movie works great if you have the latest Flash plug-in.
This movie has a good lenght, it's nicely animated with a nice sense of humor.
Note to author: maybe it's a bit too early to submit Flash8 content. Or you could try using some AS to detect the Flash player version and have your movie "degrade" automatically (I know, not that simple, but guarantees everybody can see it).
