Okay, so subtlety is key here. What I've noticed about the show is that what draws me in the most about it is the realistic dynamic between the characters but also their reactions to simple things. "Beer'd ya" being "beard' me" in the other person's mind (even though they know better) is pretty great. The casual, relaxed tones actually remind me of Regular Show except interactions in this seem a bit further down - grounded, if you will - on a spectrum of personal interaction. "Less fanciful" is how I'd describe it but I'd also have to say "more charming". Now, it's not all realistic as we know that real people are often either stumbling over each other in a conversation or not really listening. The latter of this aspect is highlighted in Kit's disregard of Rav's insight but at the same time, it's not like there's an air of disconnection between them.
I know it looks like I'm reading too deep into this but really, I'm just trying to break it down into it's base components.
In summary: I liked it - even if it was short - and I found myself captured in a brief moment by characters who made me realize that other creations fail to do the same in twenty minutes or even more. Good work and may the winds of fate not screw you over.
P.S. Also, the concept of a civilization living in a cavity underground is so cool! Have an extra half-star for that.
Hey thanks for the review. I'm glad you appreciate the subtlety in the dialog and character writing. It's something really hard to pull off especially when your VAs are on different sides of the US recording at different times. Shout out to Mary Zolp for realizing Kit so well. I was unsure if people would "get" this series and I'm so glad that you and some others seem to understand what I'm trying to do. Thanks!
I absolutely loved it. This animation is what I'd call a great throwback to a goofier time in cartoons and it's humor matches that while still being able to do them in a modern theme. Character design, voice acting, animation, and comedic escalation was great. 5/5 for making me laugh and smile with just a two minute toon.
Very nice film with rather fluid animation. The ability to match the animation with the context was a success along with the portrayal of emotion that was to be implied. Although it was a great flash, the presence of fan-service seemed a bit too convenient but hey, that's why there are ratings.
Over all, it's a pretty good flash and I'd say it's worth watching.
Why have you not gotten fives all across the board? I find this to be completely unacceptable. I will gain vote power as much as I can and I will vote fives on this flash for every day of my life.
My chair is brown now.
This was the best animation ever. No competition. You dominate all in your path.
I think that your animations would be a whole lot better if you took a while to make them. This only looks like it is about 52 frames. If you wait for updates on people who are professionals then, you would know that it takes a couple weeks (and even months) to make an animation that everyone will say, "Wow!" to. Just take a bit more time.
P.S.: When someone submits a review with constructive criticism in it, it doesn't mean they're hating on you.
It is really good
You are actually pretty good at animating and you actually end up putting some humorous bits into there but somehow people just don't seem to like it. You have good potential for your flashes so I'll try and save them.
Not many people believe the truth anymore. I just find it so great to know that there are other minds who realize the illusion of reality. Some say that a mind is a terrible thing to waste but they don't realize that it's also a terrible thing to keep. When you lose your mind, you believe a lot of things to be lost but the only thing that is lost is something that isn't real. In other words, some could say that reality is fake but so is what isn't.
If I didn't know any better I'd say that this were an actual T.V. show. The voice acting is a lot better than I have seen in any other flash and the animation and really everything all together is really great. I really don't know why you and your "crew", as I would put it, aren't famous. Your flashes are really great and I really hope to see some more of this series.
I have to say that these are some of the best horror flashes I've seen on the net. It's not too scary but I do love the "aura" it gives off. When I say "aura" I mean the feeling I get when I just look at it.
