Verdict

Tom Fulp

Nice style and Xander is menacing!

Stejk Robot

Very ambitious project, i can't believe how much you managed to get done in such a short amount of time. I dig the lineless style, color choice and animation, but the animation falls behind half way through and that made me really sad because i was enjoying the style so much.Amazing voice acting and score, some sound effects could have helped to emphesase the action and movement. Over all fucking great.

Rice Pirate

Epic in scope, clearly very ambitious. The scores for animation and artwork (and likely entertainment) would have been much higher had the quality not dropped half way through. The beginning was so fluid while maintaining a unique style, but it was clear time was against the artist as the cartoon soon became tweened still frames, sometimes not even that. If you're going to go the still frame route try to at least execute lip sync, it can help trick the eye into thinking more is going on. Had the whole piece been in either smooth or still frame, the switch would have been less jarring and the whole piece would be more cohesive. But huge credit for taking such an ambitious leap. Sadly, "ambitious intent" is not a criteria for scoring.

Mind Chamber

i liked the flat colored designs, and great voice acting.. The story feels unfinished. the little girl was to be trained in order defeat Xander but that never happened.. when you got only 2 minutes of animation, its best to try and make it a completed story, or at least a cliff hanger,I didnt get either vibe from this one
