fenin - none of them and matthew dear - dog days
2 videos by jason macfarlane
is anyone ever gonna post on these videos, surely the fenin one should evoke some sort of response?
you gotta include stills - there's way too many videos with just text to discern one from the other. It also helps if the pics have some titillating imagery.
videos have just a few days at most when they're at the top of the page- after that the no name bands (i.e. fenin) just dissappear into the archive, never to be seen again.
fair enough, have you checked them out then?
no. With no preview pix, my curiousity isn't piqued.
jk - okay I watched them.
the fenin video gets pretty boring, and the effects slowly get worse - it almost looks like a video version of a photo collage but then, not quite. The stills make it look like a diarama or that lame recent rjd2 video videos.antville.org I'm as anti-Bush as the next guy but find little to appreciate in seeing a video featuring people w/ protest posters. What is the director trying to say? That he dislikes Bush? Wow. Transcendent.
...dog days is better but again it gets boring. The drawings are great, the animation is flat but WAY too smooth. I suggest (next time) animating the characters at 12fps and adding some AE wiggler in there to make it look less smooth.
Another thing - both these videos have a lot of linear camera movement- that is, the zoom/pan motion paths are straight lines and hard angles - bezier that shit, flatten the tangents.
Sorry, not among Soft Citizen's best.
REPLAY: it took me about 5 seconds to see that these promos were unwatchable. Oh well, lol.
