A neat little thing.
The animation is nice. I appreciate the detail in how the various creatures move. The cult leader moves in little jerks like a bird, the tower one turns his head sideways to look through the periscope, etc.
The colour composition is also very nice and compliments the atmosphere very well, which is one of those things you often don't notice when it's done right because it blends in so naturally, but I can see a lot of work went into that.
I like the intro/outro music, it creates a harsh sort-of "dog eat dog" atmosphere, although the animation itself has a slightly more whimsical and silly tone than I feel the music implies. The background music feels very fitting, doesn't stand out too much but helps convey the tone of the scene, apart from the stork (?) eating scene.
As others have mentioned, the stork (?) eating scene stands out a bit with how abrupt it is and how out of place the music feels. It's obvious you were pressed for time, but for what it's worth I think you did alright with what you had. Other minor things would be that in some shots some things don't move at all, which feels like an oversight, and the tree trunk transition is a bit jarring due to the brightness gradient being weird, I think you left some extra frames in there.

All in all, solid effort. Did it do well in your assignment?

real modern art

Of all the things I could say, I think "trying too hard" is the most fitting and best delivers the message. This sort of, eh, "random" disjointed style of writing has been getting more popular for a number of years now (maybe because it requires low effort? Idk) and frankly I think it should have run it's course and died a while ago.
The animation (some of it at least) was pretty decent. I feel like there was a lot of wasted potential, I mean you can clearly animate, my question is why didn't you use your apparent skills to make something coherent?
Idunno, maybe I'm being too harsh, some of it was decent I guess. I'm guessing this accounts for a lot of practice, as the song says, everybody's got to learn.

Yea. I know what you're talking about. Writing is as pain and animating is a pain but I can get through one of those things without worrying too much. eh

Well that was uuuh... Well it was something.

Not entirely sure what can be said. While I don't want to be harsh or overly critical, it was just kind of 'meh'. The animation was kind of dull, but the voice acting was pretty alright actually.
The content/joke was funny, sure, but it just doesn't work all on it's own like this. There wasn't any real build-up, and the pay-off isn't good enough to hold it's own really. It would have worked way better as a smaller joke within a larger work, where we've actually seen the story, and get to enjoy the joke better, because the punchline and subsequent pay-off are that much more significant.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's just too 'raw'. It needs the rest of the meal.

Cheers man, I don't mind bad reviews at all, so long as people are constructive, which you certainly were so thanks! The reason this is so short, is it just sort of popped into my head so I drew it, I'm working on some massive projects at the moment, so if that's what you want then I have a series Flute: Samurai, and an animated documentary I am working on, so if you like that sort of thing, then stick around!

Pretty cool man, animation is stellar, if kind of hesitant at moments, but still among the best. Other than that I don't really have much to say, the only thing I can think of which might be improved upon is the audio quality of the voice acting, but otherwise this is pretty good. Also, the story was pretty rad.

Is everyone doing the "wacky facial expression omg" thing now? I feel like it's been spreading... Anyways the animation was pretty OK, voice acting kind of same-y but it was alright. The jokes had their moments, but most of this was just wack for the sake of wack, I feel, and this "rhundum humur lulz" thing is getting a bit out of hand I feel. Anyways, it was ok, had it's moments, but it was fairly meh.

It was ridiculously short and void of content. half of it was just a loop of the guy flying and bobbing up and down, and really nothing happens in it.
The animation wasn't that good, it was simple and clip-art like, and you used the same thing too often, the text just quickly flashed by, and I couldn't read it, and then it flashed smaller, like a glitch or something. And common, stick figures? Seriously? Hasn't the internet seen enough of that? That's just lazy man.
In short, this needs a LOT of work, and you need to work on your skills, but don't let this drag you down, keep trying, and keep improving, but in my opinion, this needs to much work to be considered good.

wow...

... this looks damn near awesome, i bet it will be all like, movie caliber when its finished...
its soo squiggly, SO SQUIGGLY!!!

never, ever...

...watching anything in the dark again... ever
this had me seriously creeped out at parts.
erm, the movie in itself was good, although the flash and the animation could have been better.
keep up the good work, but i'm not gonna watch any of it, don't wanna sh!t my pants...
