A bit preachy, but you brought up good points.
I think most forms of entertainment are good, BUT IN MODERATION. If you moderate something, then hopefully you won't come to the point where you have to light it ablaze. Some things, I've come to the conclusion through watching friends, cannot be done in moderation (eg. WoW, MMORPGs in general, and other media). I don't think you have to give up things altogether, but you made a great point about embracing the community aspect. Games like MTG (NOT the online version) force the gamer to find other people who play it, and facilitates human interactions through events like FNM. Nice vid--the epic music in the background might of been a little much though ;)
you made my day old chap!
(I am not British, so don't you dare say I am!)
And of course...
there was some M-Python in there too. Jolly good!
animation is fantastic, but a lot of your material, especially the opening scene, seems like it was ripped straight out of Hellsing. Also, the dialogue seemed a bit rigid and disjointed. Aside from you originality, this animation was pretty good!
your animation style. Anyway, my favorite part was definitely the "building hat". Well done. This could be interpreted as a commentary on lacking socioeconomic restraint...even though you didn't consciously intend it to be.
that's how my friends and I settle it...
..except we do it with MTG
Disturbed isn't metal...
..but, this animation is pretty good--like your quirky sense of humor!
-learn to spell
-learn to differentiate between music genres
-work on recovering that which you have lost
not a penicorn
It's a dongicorn...my friend drew one in my textbook last year. Anyway, decent animation...totally didn't see the end coming.
ok thanks :)
that this is bringing up the absurdity of Christmas by interjecting the fact that the holiday was supposed to be about the birth of Jesus, but we acknowledge a fat guy in a red and white jumpsuit...etc....
....Christmas was actually a pagan holiday adopted by the Romans who used the occasion for drunken behavior and men having sex (with both other men and women). Roman Catholic church took it and twisted it into what it eventually became today. Now I don't believe that Jesus did even 5% of things that the bible says, nor to I believe that he existed in the way the Christianity portrays him, but he would probably be offended by being attributed to either the pagan version of Christmas, or even the American consumerist version we have today. Just thought I'd get that all out there. Merry Winter Solstice!
I really did like it. The music, animation, and mood all flowed with one another. Great job.
