Well, I figured out how to get my cam settings right! This is the result:

Jay and Silent Bob: “The force”

Hope y’all like this small short:

ummm….. nice animation and bluntfig, but I was expecting a bit more. I think your next short should have a better story.

Rating of Animation: 10/10

Make a better story next time, kay? :)

I know it should have been longer, but I wanted to see how good my animating was in a film that everyone could see (because it only takes a little time to load). Thats also why I called it a short. ;)

so this was just a test, right?

looks good, like tron, wuz expecting something more but eh, if you’re going to use the effect in a movie then please go ahead. good animation, for what there was there I think.

just a tip: don’t post every test you do, it makes the audience more curious when you just give them a movie they know nothing about.

It’s not supposed to make sense, really…
It was just the animating I wanted to be judged…

I myself am quite a fan of Kevin Smith. The mini figs are of pretty good design. It would’ve been difficult to make a complete replica of Silent Bob’s jacket, but you found a good way around it. As for the Jay fig, I often wondered how it would look. The animation seemed smooth, and the set was well lit. If this was to turn into a whole film I would not be disappointed.

Huh? :? What happened? A guy turned into bluntman? That was barely even a short. Just a split-second of animation.

It wasn’t just a guy…it was Silent Bob. Bluntman was based upon the character of Silent Bob. Jay and Silent Bob have appeared in all of Kevin Smith’s movies. Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

And if you are a really big fan of Kevin Smith you’d notice that laugh is from “jungle love”, the song Jay and Silent Bob “based” their lives off of…

I was wondering, to those who might be able to answer this:
How long is it before a test is a short? Like a minute? 30 seconds? What?

According to the directory, a short is 1-5 minutes, and a quickie is less than 60sec….but I think a short is any film that doesnt take a long time to watch. Don’t worry about them. You said it yourself,

because it only takes a little time to load). Thats also why I called it a short.

Works for me 8)

That made so much sense I could eat a hog

That was okay except that the last frame played too long and it didn’t make any sense(to me anyway)

Well,
here are my .02
The “short” was in my taste to short” to tell if your animation skills are good or not, from the most i could tell it looks like you skills were good.
But i still can not completley tell. It was also to fast, try a framerate like 15…its the genaral one most of us here use. Also i reccomend you getting a better bulb if you can, a ge reveal works best for me it will reduce the yellow in your film.
