This movie should be on top of the weekly list, this just shows the type of people that lurks in the page... sad.
Well, i think this was better than the average NG submissions, but you still need to improve your skills (as everyone)
Ok, here's some advice, or thing that you need to improve.
-Animation: The movements are very limited, although some things were animated decently, try to work more in the movements, try to use less tweening and use more fbf, it's more work, but the result is heaps better if done correctly.
-Backgrounds: Work a little more on the backgrounds, but remember, you don't have to have extreme detail in the backgrounds, you can have very stylized and simple backgrounds and at the same time having them look great, just work more on the perspective, adding a little depth by darkening or adding light to the objects really helps, as well as a bit of shading here and there, there are some great tutorials you can find in the tut section that can help you with this.
-Scenes: Some scenes are very slow, like in some parts when they are fighting, watch this little details as the pacing really affects in the overall movie, i would suggest storyboarding.
Whoa, i typed a lot, hehehe, anyway, keep it up, and keep practicing just as i do.
I did not like the humor, it was very... meh for me. I didn't laugh at all.
But the "action" part at the end saved this somehow, i know this was supposed to be funny (not for me) but if the whole movie was like the final part, it would have been much better.
Anyway, keep it up.
I liked it
Very cool movie. It has a good story, not completely original, but c'mon, what's original in this days. It seems pretty solid, and looks like you have the most part planned or scripted already.
I liked the cliffhanger, it leaves you wanting more.
Now the things i would suggest improving.
I think the voice acting can be improved, it doesn't give enough emotion. And speaking of emotion, i would suggest putting more effort into character expressions/emotions, i felt somehow empty the moment in which they inform him that their parents died, you should have had him enter into some sort of shock.
The graphics can be better too, i'm sure you can upgrade them a little bit, but remember, you don't have to have extreme detail for the graphics to be good.
Well, despite that, this movie is heaps better than the average NG submissions, this is what we need, good stories with good pacing, i'm tired of all the sticks, sprites, madnesses, VG parodies, etc etc...
To everyone. This is just a joke, don't take it seriously.
Well, it's not actually a joke, it's just lame, but don't even think this is a true tutorial, he was just spamming the site.
Nice trailer, it looks like this series are going to be very good. You definitely have style.
Just a few tweaks here and there and this is going to be awesome. Keep it on.
It was very well done, really good trailer. I found the voice to be good, yeah, they aren't that great but they are good nonetheless.
What i suggest you is that you need to optimize this thing, yeah, everyone want to have nice effects in their flashes, but if you overuse them, the movie gets very, very laggy.
You need to understand that not everyone has a top notch computer, and if you want your movie to be viewable by a greater audience, you need to balance the graphics, with smoothness.
This is definitely what newgrounds needs, more serious animations, i really liked this and the prequel, although a bit short, it was ok for me, and you ended it with a great cliffhanger.
Very cool animation, i really enjoyed it.
And for the guy who doesn't know the name of the game where you can do portals and travel from portal to portal, well, the game is Portal...
Now, that's what i call irony... xD
First of all, the style you used fitted perfectly the story, i don't know why some guys say that it's emo and that, you explained that in your comments, but whatever hehehe.
The graphics had some small issues, but overall, they were great.
The story was very touching and had some interesting "twists"? :P
You are very talented, i realy would like to see more submissions from you.
wow thanks! It's really nice to hear that this movie got to you, the way I intended to! I really liked reading this review, thank you for that :)
