Richard Clark:

Haha...this is funny!

Adam Momsen:

This probably wins all the points for original setup, and I like that you focused on stop motion for this. The motion is somewhat erratic, though, and in a lot of cases moves too fast (like then the ketchup squirts around frame 50 or so). I might almost have the condiments on the hot dog *first*, as if the damage is done already, then have the ketchup and mustard taunting him. Maybe whoever lives here is coming into the kitchen for lunch?

Frost Seven:

interesting... this is something new

Ben Halstead:

Nice! The moments when they squirt their sauces onto the hot dog are a bit confusing. It kind of looks like the ketchup bottle is eating him.

Tyson Haeh:

The characters flail around so much its hard to see the lip movement



Mag Magnet:

The idea is funny, and great job with the faces! Many of the poses were too quick, though, so we didn't have much of a chance to see the motions.

Ramsey Parks:

I really relish your work. Seriously the little story is amazing and interesting use of stop motion.

Bruno de Coninck:

Interesting idea. Some moves are a bit too quick for me. Adding some anticipation could help throught. Fore example, when the ketchup bottle splits some ketchup on the hot dog!

Kyle Novak:

good for a month worth of work, but your camera angles and speed leave the viewer wondering what exactly is happening.

Nathan Greensmith:

First of all awesome job animating in stop motion. movements seem a tiny bit fast, but the plot is great, the acting and emotion is great considering they are just sauce bottles with faces. This should do well. A potential winner in my opinion. Fantastic work.

Martin Strom:

It's nice to see stop-motion and I like the idea with ketchup and mustard threat a hotdo (sort of). But they moves way too fast to fit the sound.
