This trailer had some wonderful things going for it visually. Great color, animation and beautiful backgrounds. But, it lacked in pacing and storytelling for me.
I was able to understand that it was about a pianist, but that's about it. So, being a trailer, I hoped to come away with a little more about what to expect from the story. Showing mood and atmosphere is wonderful, something American animation struggles with, but if it's not balanced with story and drama it comes off as static.
I'd also add a further note. As NG grows in popularity, it's becoming difficult to judge fairly when single adolescents and even lone adult professionals are "competing" with studios. I'm not blaming anyone, obviously. It's great to see this caliber of work on NG but the negative is that those lone undergrounders don't get a fair shake at the spotlight, to which NG has built it's community around. I'm not sure what the solution would be, if there is one.
Either way, a tremendous final look and I hope you find the budget to complete this work. We need more modern 2D features! Keep it up, guys!
Great stuff as usual...
Keep them coming. :)
Seriously, Commie, I can see this kind of show on TV. Similar to Robot Chicken, but funnier.
Best Zelda Parody on NG
This was really well done. The pacing was strong, as well as the acting.
You also have a really polished look to it. The humor was more "chuckles" than crying with laughter, but overall I think this is a wonderful short.
Not ass long and dull like so many other video game parodies.
Feel proud, Sexy Sexy Sexy Bicycle.
Brill FxF and even better colors…
Though you might think of presenting this at have the size, it tends to get a bit choppy in places.
Overall great stuff, looking forward to more….
Is there more to say? Wicked good man...
Some loverly things going on here. Solid animation, great colors/style..
Looking forward to seeing more from you...
Sure there's a ton of Adam-inspired material in here, but what aspiring Flash animator doesn't borrow from him?
But, more importantly, there's just some plain good animation in here. That honey was great fun to watch, especially when it snatched her at the end. Great timing.
If I were to critique something, I'd say you could work on your visual constistancy. It's a bit on in places.
Overall, great job and I'll look forward to seeing more from ya...
We need a new rating system...
5's or 10's just don't cut it when other shorts pale in comparison to such a wonderfully crafted animation. The animation and visuals were like a warm, gooey oatmeal cookie fresh from the oven. I love the expanded Brackenwood universe and can't wait too see more from the Yu Yus.
My hat is off to you, Adam and fuck you for being so damn good! ;) Keep 'em comin'.
Wonderful animation, as usual...
The plot was fairly solid with some nice gags and comedic timing. The greatness of this short, however, lies in it's animation technique. A little soft in some areas, but near flawless I'd say. I've been a fan of your work for a bit and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.
