Ah, so cute! The emotions were so intense, with the unique changes in camera angle, the clarity of the shadows, and even the bright pink color of the mouths. I especially enjoyed how the screen was often split so two angles were shown at once. I don't think I have ever seen that technique before-- I wish I thought of that haha. Although this is short, it is beautiful.
And when L sat down in his signature position and stuck his head through the bars. . .
Yes, there were tears in my eyes
Yes, I did cry just a little. The part in the park was gloriously emotional. And I like the symbolism: the necklace, the race at the end. This is interesting because there are many themes that may be drawn, based on how you interpret Brian's wish.
Also, I voted 5, not 4 like the poster said. haha.
so emotional and pretty
I like the irony of this flash: lonely people are not alone; many people understand this emotion.
The whole flash was amazingly symbolic. The difference in drawing and animation styles shows how widespread loneliness is. Everyone felt lonely, but they felt it in different ways and places, showing their isolation.
Humorous but repetitive
like the song!
I thought this was funny, especially "Severus!" I could tell which words you "misheard" because they didn't make sense in context, but I couldn't distinguish what the singer really was saying, so good job "mishearing".
However, the pictures got boring and would have been more entertaining if this was actually animated. And when the song repeated, the visuals should have at least been different.
Thanks for the compliments! :)
You're right about it getting repetitive.. Especially the drummer, I think. Reason I didn't animate was because I thought it was funny if I used images I found on the web, like 'how'd you find an image to fit with those lyrics' kind of funny.
haha That is a good temporary solution to the unfortunate problem of emo invasion, but I think this product is more likely to increase the emoness of emos.
(I'm not really anti-emo; some people need to express their sadness.)
That was really funny. I enjoyed how it parodied real TV commercials, like the testimonial.
The animation of the water looked amazingly liquid. I also liked the mouse squeezing into the house. Although the house looked a little small for it.
Why did the mouse push the house away at the end?
Very good symbolism
The animation style was kind of strange, which added to its emotion. For example, when the different guy was walking down the line of smiling people, things were moving at weird angles, which made the guy seem more troubled and unusual. The message that people are safer when they fit in was strong and clear.
I thought that was really funny. My favorite was B because the guy nearly got killed by many other things that started with B, but finally died from a brain tumor. That was the most creative. I also liked Xylophone and Football for their randomness. There were a few that were not funny, which made it boring sometimes, but I guess that as in real life, there needs to be non-funny occasions to make funny things stand out more.
Quite funny, but not that good
My favorite sign was writing graffiti in ActionScript, from the simple humor of writing parentheses after "stop". The [ctrl] + Z idea was good, but I think it could have been applied to a funnier situation. I thought, however, that the guy who didn't give attention to his girlfriend and the guy who punched someone for insulting Flash were not that funny.
In general, I thought this was a clever idea.
Good story, bad animation
Although the drawing and animation were unacceptably bad, it was interesting. hehe I never thought of what .fla files look like from behind. And although the idea of BLAMming flash by shooting them isn't new, you cleverly used it to symbolize Clock mass voting. It reminded me of the Flash Portal banner before the redesign, where you could roll over the files to make them explode.
Can you change the voices though?
THank you, a very deep review, i enjoy things like that. =) and i never saw the previous layout of the site, but thanks anyway... and the graphics are WAY better in the actual power point version, but were reduced during the .SWF conversion.
