Saw this a few days ago..I thought it was very funny and well done, though it goes on for a bit too long trailer-wise. :)

I saw Neighbors <I>years</I> ago on TV and was lucky enough to catch it again at the Disney Paris exhibit, where they had several animation screenings going on in conjunction with that event.

It's a great little film, always changing and very different. This one had some repitition, but some nice ideas. I loved the closing shot.

Nice! :)

Funny. A bit long, but funny. And the Hanks "Bond" at the end was classic. :)

"A Flatpack Project" by John Haddon

Post by Josh » January 17th, 2007, 10:16 am

I saw this unique short, simply titled "A Flatpack Project," on YouTube a while back:
kevanshorey wrote:My best friend's short film, made when we were studying Computer Animation at Bournemouth University. All of the artistic effects were created with programs written by the boy himself, and as a piece of art, it remains one of the best animated shorts I have seen.

The music [song: No Surprises] is copyright Radiohead, and permission was sought and granted for its inclusion. It is performed by a few friends.


I admit the short's story is somewhat difficult to understand. Some of the YouTube talkbackers have expressed their intrepretation of it:
Metal777Messiah wrote:For all those who did not understand this video: Our life is all hard work, but the few moments of beauty, (love, laughter, happiness) that we get are all worth the effort.
iblucky wrote:i saw it as a view of human life through the eye of a creative genious. does the hampster wheel represent all of lifes work that can be done through a fun time though? because isn't that something fun that hampsters do?

Hey, my dad has this on tape somewhere! I think Mr. Baxter is a friend/acquaintance of his, or something. Heheh -- I saw it a while back and I absolutely loved it; funniest thing I ever did see on paper. :lol:

Brilliant. Better than mo-capped CGI dancing penguins, that's for sure. :)

Behind every great woman, there is a man. ;)


Lovely little film, with some very nice ideas. The style reminded me of Richard Williams' meticulous attention to detail and it's a truly striking debut, full of understated emotion, but never outstaying its welcome.

Very cool. :)

The FUNNIEST Star Wars parody you will see this year!

Post by GeorgeC » February 14th, 2007, 11:29 pm

Please note that the following film I am about to post a link to contains some foul language and adult commentary... Keep the children out of the room when you play the video!

http://www.akjak.com/vader-sessions/

This video is also available on YouTube.com under the Search Terms "Vader Sessions."

Again, this is easily the funniest Star Wars spoof since Episode III: A Lost Hope. :lol:

Very clever, and the audio is ALL Mr. Jones. No substitutions accepted! :twisted:
