What's that font you're using? You can't fool me, that is DEF a font :P
But it's a really AWESOME font, so I wanna know it xD
Also, good animation, a little "tween-y," maybe venture a little into frame by frame animation :D
It's called something funny, I can't remember it off hand. Go to dafont.com Also I've done fbf just not here. On my Youtube or deviantart there's more stuff.
I know you were going for the whole edge of "Hey! I'll bet a tampon would have a lot of funny things to say!" But overall there weren't a MASSIVE amount of jokes that were really related to this, it was just that a tampon was talking, and saying weird stuff.
Like, not funny because it's weird. Just weird.
I think you tried to give the tampon too many human characteristics (Going to college, marrying, even being "employed" was kinda odd in my opinion)... Perhaps if you had Gone more with the tampon's actual personality, having him reveal actual "confessions," rather than just say things like "Oh, yeah! I graduated! Because I'm a tampon, it's funny." You could have him go into some sorta development about how he's become clinically depressed from simply "being used and just all of a sudden being abandoned by the one person I know..." Or maybe some sorta medical/Emergency-Room type memory due too a bunch of blood rushing to his head... I dunno.
The marrying a pickle was probably the weirdest. Of all things, a pickle?
All in all, I did like the joke at the end, tying it back to "He's a tampon, so the SITUATION is funny." Instead of "He's a tampon, it's funny whenever he says something."
So, 4 :D
i see what your saying if it was called interview ith a tampon maybe you would of thought different but i was just going for a serreal toon that doesn't really make much sense i like to think my cartoons as being don't ask why or over think just enjoy but hay can't apeel to every one but i thank you for giving it an 8 and na 4 even thought you wasn't overly keane on it :)
Everything was above average, but... not astounding.
Figure drawing (Specifically, bulkiness of the arms, hands), Plot (Make it go somewhere, not just stay on one fairly humorous bit for so long), Voice Acting, Animation (Facial Expressions, Lip Synching), etc. Were all good, but I really think if you just put in more effort, you have the potential to make something REALLY astounding :D
My biggest suggestion is to keep things interesting. Long sequences of the guy walking got boring quick, as did the very long pauses.
I'd suggest either show more diverse angles and such, show different things in the meantime, or just make certain scenes shorter.
If anything, that would be what you overdid; I mean, even the heart beating was a little long. If you had shown the heart once, then shown the guy cooking the snake from a different angle than before, and then showed the heart again, it probably would have kept my attention a lot better =D
However, I AM giving you a 7 because you interested me with the general idea. Just a tip for the future: Use more music (Even if it's quiet, background music is almost ALWAYS a must), improve on your animation (I mean, this goes for just about everyone on newgrounds. You've at least got fbf down, so that's pretty good), and increase the pace!
Definitely the very very ending was the funniest part.
That's all nice and well, but there was WAY too long of a set up with repetetive joking after another. Cut to the chase next time :D
Also, I'd say burhs up on animation a little. Have the guy turn his head to look at the spider. Change 'camera angle' occasionally, do close ups of characters (You do this once at the end, but that was only to hide the extra arms), etc.
I'll let you off easy, since the ending actually did make my smile.
I can just make a 1 sec joke for you. No setup just the punch line.
Learn how to draw piano keys
Seriously, that was my biggest problem with it, as an avid piano player xD
There are a LOT more black keys ;)
Aside from that, learn a little bit about changing shots. (I.E, when it changes from Mario putting his hands up to stop the applause to sitting at the piano, there should be a shot in between of him approaching it, or show it from a different angle, something.)
The rest of it was pretty great =D
Unfortunately, I'd heard this joke 256,806 times before I saw this.
The animation was solid, as far as voices, they work, but I personally don't like the silly artificially high pitch voice-feel.
Again, work on the story. Something original as well as funny. Aside from that, very professional feel.
FIRST OF ALLLLLLL
It's a Parody if it's about Odysseus/based on the Odyssey :P
Second, the voice as the tale 'began' was incredibly quiet, and voices in general are kinda, odd, or maybe it's the script, I dunno, it sounded weird whenever they talked.
Speaking of weird, I know you wanted to stylize the noses, but just having them jut out like that does not match the style of the rest of the movie.
Work on your animation as well, and it'll be a pretty cool, bro :)
Interesting, by far.
Also wondering, what is the name of the song used in the credits?
Was good ish =D
It was nice, a little lengthy for me to keep my interest, sorry : /
It seemed like you wanted it to be a very big scale production, but certain features prevented this.
1a) Quality: I know you probably worked outside of flash and had to export in a non-vector form, and you had to condense it from 22 minutes, but maybe you should try just uploading multiple parts, that way they can also be easily watched in shorter, less time-demanding pieces :)
1b) Art: The art was very much well done, actually. Not much to say here except on some occasions check characters' proportions/face. But quite good job overall.
Also, I personally don't like Anime. You'd be real good at more realistic figures, why limit yourself?
2) Drama: For some reason, I felt the movie could have been more 'capturing.' Perhaps that's partly due to the compressed quality, but I think it would also actually be BETTER if you were able to shorten the movie. Remember, just because something's long doesn't mean it's good, and a shorter movie with more condensed emotion is better than a longer movie with more spread out and sparse emotion.
Other than that, nice job :)
Yeah....peoples time and attention spans are fragile...22 minutes is too long. The longer it is, the better it should be.
I'm with you 1,000,000,000%. This could and should have been more capturing. I feel its due to the story, style, and execution. In general, everything.
"just because something's long doesn't mean it's good,"
I'm with you 1,000,000,000,000,000%
"shorter movie with more condensed emotion is better than a longer movie with more spread out and sparse emotion."
