    This short is neat, a little too textured in my oppinion but still neat.

    who says “neat” anymore. how about rad? yeah, let’s say that…

    that over textured feeling quickly went away after all the buildings went up. It had a great ramp up to the tunes…

    Loved the old “lets colour everyone with one colour” thing. Very nice.

    Animation was limited, but fun. Colours and quick cuts are keeping me looking.

    Everything did feel a bit flat though. not very dynamic. But hey? who am I to judge? I’ve produced plenty of stiffies. Especially when the timeline or budget was inefficient.

    loved that monster dancing and the pee stains. Very nice.

    some neat effects here and there too.

    It’s a celebration!

    Looks like alot of AE comping and effects. neat, I mean Rad!

    Won’t you be my neighbour?

    I really liked the feeling of good ol’ “classical” science fiction. Especially the first part made me think of the Japanese “Space Adventure Cobra” by Buichi Terasawa. It looked really nice (I really didn’t think it was over-textured), humorous, catchy, great job overall! Didn’t like the look of the fires/explosions much but that’s my only gripe!
