i feel so ashamed of my degree film


my fave bit is when mr evil takes a drink

that is all timed so well

"intruder alert" is still ringing in my head

the first time i watched it i had the volume up to loud

where did you study?

are there going to be other episodes?

sounds so sweet with the sub woofer

why thankyou Victor, glad you liked it.

I studied at Southampton Institute, are you looking to study animation somewhere yourself or are you a veteren of the industry.

in fact now i think about it your that guy who did "merve the perve" and those short "Time To Go animations". Very good.

have you anything in the pipeline at the mo.

Hey Mr Tom,

Very nice job indeed. I like the style you've delved into over the years, but as I said to Mike..... If you keep it up I'll have to poison you both.

I remember the day I first saw Merv the Perv... it's a day I'll never forget.

Awesome job Tom

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

i've just had a comment about the shacky dog legs thing thats at the beginning of the animation from another forum. As the same thing is featured on Mikes "like a snack out of hell" this is an in joke from our uni that we both attend and we are good friends. just in case anyone feels that they are a bit to similar.

WOW, that rocked man, love ur animation style, very snappy and exaggerated and it totally works. Congrats, u have a kick ass film.
Just a few scenes were a lil unclear to me about the staging, its just probably the compression. All in all, great job. Cheers.

Thanks to everyone for your responses, i'm glad you're enjoying it, in regards to the bigger high res version, i'm still working on it but with any luck i'll have a 720x450 version for you at some point.

yes "snack out of hell" guy and i are chums, and the shakey dog leg thing is the same so i can see how you may get confused, sorry about that.

Thanks again to everyone who commented
