Animator: Rik Schutte

Description: Remember when you're watching a boring movie, trying to keep your eyes open and then woken up roughly by a hard sound in the movie? That's what's happening to this guy. I know it's not usual, but I'm trying a total different approach this time :P.

This is the most original so far in this competition. I'm tired of seeing vampires

Not bad at all

Robert Firestone:

Vinu Nair:

good job ! really liked it.. but when its say "u killed...life " the expressions wud have been much more better ;) rest is good .. cheers :)

Jocelyn Gray:

Very nice animation! *Very* nice, and a different story for the dialogue, which is really fun! Good job, I'd say you have a shot of winning this month!

Amartya Mukherji:

animation is very nice but the shot is not specific to the audio.

Moy Parra:

This month's audio was a tough one to "ground" in terms of storytelling. I think that you did a good job with this idea :) As for the animation I also thought it was good, thightening up your timings particularly on the "scare" section will bump it up quite a bit. Nice job!

Did u animate each popcorn individually??

Srujith Kumar Ogirala:

Animation is good. concept is nill

Aaron Junyou:

WHOA!!! Really did not expect this!!! Great idea :)

Natalie Wilkinson:

I liked the animation on the man falling asleep, but this piece doesn't seem to address the audio directly.

Ryan D Lowe:

Great out of the box idea here! Great animation. Good work. My criticism is I didn't read that he was falling asleep at first until the body started slumping.

Babul Prasad:

nice action, expressions are not going with the mood

Irina Volishina:

Witty script, good animation


this is really good, the sleeping section could be slower (1-145) he seems to fall asleep and wake up to quickly. just my thoughts but a really good animation overall.
