War, Snow and Fire War, Snow and Fire

Rated 5 / 5 stars

striking

I thought it was fantastic. Your minimal use of colour to get a distinct graphic style worked extremely well IMO. I think every animator should make a silhouette movie at some point because it really teaches you how to compose your shots and pose your characters well. Loved the texture through the backgrounds too which, with Harry's music and no sound effects, made it feel to me like a moving storybook. A well-written one, I might add. Congrats on the awards, looking forward to your next one :D

aw poor scarey

Excellent work Dan. Good design on the characters and backgrounds. The winter design was just great. As we watched his life pass by with the seasons, it would have been good to see a bit more of that deterioration over time (seams opening, colour fading, fabric fraying, spider webs, etc). The changes in weather and lighting made for some very nice atmosphere and moods that worked well with a great choice of music. Keep up the good work man, looking forward to your next piece :D

Top stuff

Your dialogue writing has always had something special Nathan and it's improving all the time. The audio quality seems to be improving too (get a new mic, did you?)

My favourite bits are the 'pit of fierce cats' and the fat cat struggling to get up and walk XD. Good to see the medium make an appearance at the end.
Looking forward to the next one to see where/if it goes from here :D

i was quite proud of that cat, it has a few issues but i like how it turned out. im actually recording with the video camera and then cutting out all the noise :) seems to be working fine!

thanks again!

These Pancakes Are Tiny These Pancakes Are Tiny

Rated 5 / 5 stars

that was, and still is great

That was excellent Matthew. The lip sync is very well animated and I noticed all the little details (wilting plants in the living room, coffee cup rings on the coffee table). Very nice work.

fat mis mifsyf

Really impressive man, and funny. Good writing & direction, I really like the way you've set up some of those shots and the palette of desaturated blue gave the whole thing a nice moody theme. Favourite shot was the bedroom, with the lightning outside.

The harassing phonecall scenes were hilarious dude, the acting, expressions and that shot of box peeking through the blinds XD
Then the murder: "what have I done?"
"you stabbed me until I was dead... "
hahah great

Good work on the voices too, btw :D
I'm curious as to what your "new really quick method of lip sync" is. Seems to have done the job.
