Hamsters the aliens part1 Hamsters the aliens part1

Rated 3 / 5 stars

I liked this.
It didn't make much sense, but that's what made it fun. It doesn't need to.
I would definitely like to see this continued.
I know a lot of time crawls into stop motions so I won't say it's too short, but I would have preferred it to be longer. I'm going to assume this was just a teaser to see if people were interested and if you do decide to continue, I'd like it if you made the parts a little bit longer before you upload it. People would rather wait a while for something that's longer, than have something really fast and that's over in less than a minute. At this length, people are also quicker to forget about it. Longer episodes will make the story easier to follow.
However, the voice acting bored me. It was very obvious you did it all on your own, which isn't a bad thing, but if you choose to do it all on your own, make sure you bring some differences in your voice. Change your pitch according to different characters. That might even make it more humorous and usually people think it's funny when people talk in weird voices. Don't be afraid to try it out. I think for this submission, it might work.

Overall, I liked it. It didn't impress me tough, because of the voice acting. I think if you do something different with the voice acting, this can have great potential.

Good luck with this and I do hope to see more of it in the future.



D3 - Haedrig's Story D3 - Haedrig's Story

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Okay, this was actually pretty funny, however the quality is disappointing.
I do like the animation and the drawing style, it's not too bad. It's good enough to be funny, however, I have no idea with what program this was made.
It's very pixelated and in the bottom, you can see what's going to happen, which is kind of distracting.
It looks like it was recorded with a screen sharing software, if that makes sense. It also leaves me wondering if this was actually yours, or if you simply made a copy of someone's video.
If it is yours, keep this in mind next time, because it can give off the wrong idea. If you did this frame by frame in paint and than pasted it together, make sure you save everything with a high quality extension, so it doesn't look pixelated like this. It may take up more space, but it definitely improves your submission.
The voice acting was also okay. I thought the voices were pretty funny and the sound was very clear.
Also, auto loop gets me every time. Please try to add a loading screen next time. It doesn't have to be complicated. Or just a single screen at the end with a replay button so it doesn't loop indefinitely.

Overall, idea was funny, voice acting was funny, style was okay, but the quality kind of ruins it for me.
You did a pretty good job and I see potential in this, but please, work on the quality of your images so it doesn't look like it was recorded with a potato. It didn't sound like that, so it shouldn't look like that either.

Hi there, we are using Adobe Flash CS6, as for the little square on the bottom... I have no idea how that got there, this is our first video we've actually made we have them on Youtube and decided to expand a little to get our name out there. If theres any ideas you can offer to get rid of the pixelation that would be great it was fine until we turned it into a .swf file... Also we have NO idea how to add in a loop or put in a loading screen, that will come soon. Keep watching and thanks for the feedback :D

Well, I'm not sure what to think of this.
I thought the style was kind of humorous, but it also felt like it lacked any real effort.
I'm not sure how long you spent on it, but if you're trying to make a homage or a parody (I'm not even sure which of those you were trying to accomplish), you should probably spent a little more time on it.
This kind of reminded me of ASDF movie, but not as funny.
There's nothing original about this, but if you want a quick laugh, I suppose this will do, however, this feels like a WIP, which I don't think this is worth putting in the portal.
If you would have either gone through the entire song, or done this part with some colour, I would have liked it more.
Also, the automatic loop is fairly annoying. I had to collapse the video so I could write this review, which shouldn't be necessary.

Overall, I think this could go somewhere, but it needs a lot of work. Right now it looks like it was made for practice.
Good luck. I do hope to see an improved version of this in the future.

Robot Boy (El Nino Robot) Robot Boy (El Nino Robot)

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I would have liked it if it was a bit longer, but I enjoyed it.
It's visually interesting and the rhyming is fun, even tough you didn't write it yourself, I feel you did the story justice.
I like that it comes over as a children's story, but it isn't exactly appropriate for children. It's obviously meant for a more mature audience.
I found the music rather annoying tough, it loops and has a very sharp sound, which may have been your intention, but I personally didn't like it. I would have chosen something mechanical sounding to fit the story, rather than something that sounds like it came out of a horror movie.

Overall, well done. I thought it was humorous and I enjoyed it.
