Hi there,

Well it's honourable that you've put so much time into it.....but to be totally honest it had very few redeeming qualities. The voiceovers were laughably bad, the animation was totally off, and the storyline was predictable and cliche. I didn't really enjoy any of it (the only scene that I thought was "ok" story-wise was when the cow grabbed onto the back of the plane).

That being said, if you learn from those mistakes your next film could be quite good!

thnx for the crits...
this is my 2nd short film.
(altough i have made lots of 15sec ones).
each time i i feel i get (in my opinion) more and more better at what i do.
the only thing that surprised me is that you didnt liked the story line- but its prbbly becuase of my poor english

Hey, I agree with Ivan.. it's not that great, but you need to start somewhere, and I think it takes a bit of courage to post here. I would work on the timing of the lip sync's, not rush the stuff, make sure everything is satisfactory, etc..

One thing that is bad, is the compression, or the lack of. High res is 147 mgb's which is HUGE! I would recommend exporting with a much higher compression rate, for instance Quicktime Sorenson 3.

Anywho, good luck :thumbsup:
