Skull in Connemara Skull in Connemara

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nice and Mysterious...

Such raw dirty animation worked well for the piece and visually it was very enjoyable to watch. The soundtrack also worked quite well. Being Irish, the stereotypes were still visible but it didn't bug me that much in this. The idea of having it shown through mist was simply genius, and such an exciting incentive whilst animating it! At the moment I'm animating something quite similar for an Irish comedian called Jon Kenny. Before he jumps on stage a small animation of him will play on an overhead projector signalling his arrival.
Anyway, great stuff, it looks wonderful.

I wasn't sure if it seemed irish enough, but I know what you mean about stereotypes. I hope you upload the animation when it's finished, send me a link when it's out, I'd love to see it.

It wasn't boring at least.

You've got a nice loose colouring method. The character animation and background designs also look nice. However the humour didn't work for me at all and 'Wood' was painful as a song. The professionalism raised the bar but there are some major things wrong with it. You have Animation skills but your way of telling a story is pretty weak.

Great energy, great flow.

Cool, that works for me. It was exciting, gory and the animation was pretty inventive. What made this different to the countless others is that one stickman had the ability to morph and the other used a weapon (i.e. different characterisations).

All-round Great short film!

Very cool short film, I just recently became a fan. This particular episode is interesting because there are similarities between the scene where the crew fall out from the army plane and a short animation I made back in 2006. The story, composition and humour are quite similar. I would love to know whether or not it the scene was based on my film, because that would be awesome! Probably not, but hey, I can dream! /349697

Good start

Not too shabby for your first flash -- don't upload any more tests though. Work on a fleshed out short film and then upload.

These Pancakes Are Tiny These Pancakes Are Tiny

Based on Pulp Fiction? Apsolutely!

Nice! I love the colour scheme, the angles, the humour and modesty - it's very tempting in animation to overdo something, yet everything was kept very grounded including the facial expressions.
Topped off with quick simple credits and a side order of pancakes.

Screwing over the audience.

Well yeah, the graphic design and animation was beautiful, but you really screwed us over with how short it was. I'm not sure the timing was quite right either.

Dog Of Man Dog Of Man

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Creepy, but slightly dissapointing.

Another flash to scare the pants off un-suspecting viewers - the sound must be praised as it is what makes it (particularally the speaker noise radiating from the dogs mouth). Besides this, I'm not quite sure it lived up to my expectations because it's been a while since the last flash and this one (altough creepy) is really just a generic Firth flash. The story has changed slightly but it's pretty much the same thing. I would love a longer one next time with a more in-depth world to ponder over.
Still, grand flash.

The mind of John Mc Cain is a desturbed one...

Nice and random with a pinch of craziness thrown in for good measure. Loved the psychedelic sequences!
Pretty funny.
