    Great work man! I know nothing about doing animation but that looked like a lot of work! Thanks for the good words on my film!

    lol, very fun! Animation was cool and you animated some great action. I dont want to imagine how painstaking it must have been to model, texture, animate and render it all, because I have had experience with CG and never has it been an enjoyable one :p So nods to you for choosing animation as your medium in this fest!

    One critique, I felt the beginning with porn mag and the taking crap was kinda cheep shots for laughs. Dont get me wrong, a good poop humor is always fun, but like anything else, it is an art in itself to do right. Subtle way of approaching it seem to work the best I have found. But other then that nice work! Thank you for sharing!

    Well, Jace, as I said in the beginning, I set out to make the most offensive, non-PC cartoon I could. From your comments, I apparently succeeded! Thanks for watching - and being offended!

    Spoiler-y review. Read at your own risk:

    Note: It's hard for me to critique animation because I can't do it. I don't know what works / doesn't work / etc. It would be like me critiquing a cd. I know what I like and don't like, but not much more than that.

    What I liked: First off, congrats on pulling something like this off. I couldn't have done it if you had given me a year. Santa, the pig ... it all looked great. And that's FAR more important than the nitpicking I do below. I also liked how different this was than the story I thought it was going to be.

    What I didn't like as much: Contrary to a different entry, I would have liked a little voice over on the beginning of this. Just at the part we're supposed to read in the book. I'm also not a fan of fart jokes. I think it's a con to make people laugh. I never find it funny (but I'm weird). HOWEVER, it did work here because it's what was actually moving your story along. But I did want to mention it. I think the thing that I liked least was that ... Santa died. Right after "No one ever dies in a cartoon," Santa died. But ... he ... just ... said ... Again, I'm nitpicking.

    Great entry. Top of the food chain for me!

I also uploaded it to my YouTube private account and the contrast was fine. This is my first venture into Vimeoland and I'm less than happy with the results.
    Can you PM me the password, I would love to take a look at it as well. Thank you...HAPPY NEW YEARS!

    Thanks for the review, Hawk. I used the book because I ran out of voices -my own - doing Santa and the Pig. I also thought it felt more "cartoonish." Santa dying right after pontificationg that "No one ever dies in a cartoon," was a jab at irony. I guess it didn't work for you if it didn't seem - ironic. Happy you were put off by the fart routine. As I said at the beginning, if you weren't offended, I failed.

    Kool. Very entertaining and well done. Not big on the fart stuff but since it was done, the gas fumes were a nice touch. Just a guess if you don't mind... Daz Studio or Poser.. maybe off chance of lightwave? Mimic to animate the speaking?

    Thanks

    Poser Pro 2012. I animated everything - including the speaking. Glad you liked it. Very happy the fart jokes offended nearly everyone as that's what I set out to accomplish.
