I'm giving you a five.
This is simply due to the fact that you obviously deserve a 3, but it's likely that some will blam your work, giving you 3 points less than what you deserve. In response to this, I will give you 2 points more than what you deserve.
Also, I am sorry I could not give you that 1 lost point.
Interesting use of cinematic music. Acting was above decent.
Perhaps next time you should get a better microphone. Also be sure to put a lot more work into pre-production. It's not very well written but it does follow an interesting movie-like pace.
After the symphonic music, the ending credits music seemed akward. Also, condidering the story is not over, there's not much point for such emotional music to begin with. Did you compress the music in the first place?
Overall, it's pretty good. Your Flash skills are good. Now you need to improve your writing/directing skills. Keep up the good work.
(BTW, perhaps you can contact me about an original soundtrack)
I sat through this anticipating a punchline. Instead, I was given an interesting message. Overall, everything was nicely set up,(Animation, camera angles, backgrounds, mouth sync) however, the acting was rather mediocre. I liked the iPod reference. A similar situation haunted me earlier today. All should see this cartoon.
To end this review, I will state; "Fight overpopulation."
I am sorry for being a bastard. However, I decided to check out your composition as it was given the genre of "Indie" I was looking forward to the diversity and oddity I was expecting. Three seconds into listening, I found that this was not the case.
I do not see how this resembles the genre of "Indie" Sure, the piece starts out with a guitar (I could swear a guitar is more Western than any other instrument) playing a nice and simple intro of a bass note and another note 8 whole steps up. (Octave) My thoughts were "Fun. Maybe this is an 'Indie' piece performed by someone just trying to recreate some cool middle-eastern music. I was dissapointed to find that the scale was a major. (Not very Middle-Eastern or 'Indie' as you call it) Of course, when it comes to playing the guitar, scales can switch from minor to major in a heart beat.
Having found this composition is not really "Indie" (Unless "Indie" is a new phrase to describe emo music) I decided to hear what the song did have to offer. Rather than critique the actual composition (It's a decent song in whole) I will state that the artist performs this as a live recording. Such a recording does not seem very useful for such a place like the Audio Portal considering this place is meant to house music for people to use for their Flash projects. (As far as I know)
Please better from my critique. I do not mean to be a douche. And Thank you for not posting bad techno or some sort of videogame ripoff piece. Keep working, Lt. Black Shadow. Good luck with future compositions.
Lack of creativity
It is an awesome piece. It was also nicely recomposed. Still, unless I'm mistaken horrendously, you offer almost nothing in terms of adding anything to the piece. If anything, it sounds less interesting than the original version from the game. The creativity is low, but I still enjoyed hearing this. Good job converting it. To me, it sounds so peaceful that it is scary.
Thanks, I don't make any special to this because I gonna have it in a flashmovie!
