Great work; Needs better POV.
I do need to start by saying this is a very awesome clip! But digging a little deeper.
I was first thinking this was under the premise that it was a Veidt industries cartoon and a vehicle to sell buy all their playsets and toys. So the meta story of the segment would be "in-story".
This piece seemed to be more about the selling off our existence of reality by being a exploitation of the graphic novel, rather than the exploitation of vigilantes who are outlawed by the Keen act and therefor can't hold copyright. While the exploitation theme is still similar, being "in-story" packs a better punch.
Just being a media critic. It was very enjoyable!
It didn't disappoint!
This is the kind of work I like to see more of on NG. You know, good work.
Also, good to see this continuation didn't disappoint!
Good too look at, bad to listen to
Again, sound is a huge blite to this piece. Here's how to try and fix:
I noticed that you're useing a condencer mic. Becuse of it's design, Ps and Bs and other explosives have that poping sound. When recording, talk over the mic, not into it.
Also, keep the same distance away from the microphone at all times. Try to use a stand of some sorts rahter than holding the mic with your hands.
When useing music in the background, turn down the music. Playing music and vocals at 100% each will always drown out the vocals.
Also, feel free to encode the audio at a better frame rate. Yes, it takes a bit longer to download on dial-ups, but at least you'll be able to understand what people are saying.
When you have wonderful graphics and crappy sound, people will remember the grappy sound and look down at your work.
Hope this helps!

Speechless. Absolutely speechless. If I was a producer that had some clout in the business, I would try to get you guys on a big-time contract. I have always loved the eskimo bob series, but you guys have outdone yourselves this time around! I hope that this series brings you good fortune for years to come. This is the stuff that makes carrers.
This is the shit!
I really don't like giving out 5s very often, but you have certinly earned every point!

When I first read the title on the top 5 list, I thought that either the person didn't like the book and did something half-assed to make that point, or it would be a piece that would be an attempt to give a visual representation of the book. I am very glad it was the latter.
I really like the idea of a book preview concept. It's hard to susessfully translate a book into a visual image, but you have done a very nice job of selecting the parts to protray and created a nice flow. Some random points:
* GOOD work with text! You were able to make text become an image and not just a seperate enity. EVERYTHING on the stage accounts to the movie.
* I'm at a miss with the shaskta into upsidedown cross. Elie is jewish and not cathloic (or offically reconizes Jesus). Unless you wanted to open the can of worms of the whole Catholic church-hologost theory... It doesn't quite work in a narrative point of view.
* I have to say it becuase I'm picky: The hanging scene would be better if the images were cleaner. Again, I'm being very picky.
In all, VERY good job! 5 all the way. I hope that you will learn from this and other reviews and be able to create even more stunning pieces of work.
Nice short art clip
Good work! It's nice to see people who are trying to be creative and not go for cheep shots.
Points I like:
The Satellite's lights were in time with the music. I do not think most people are insightful enough to even think about making a direct connection of the image to sound.
Points I less-than-liked:
I'm being VERY picky, but the way the sun and the eath was positioned, the light would not show the world lit up under the perspective the camera was in. The sattalite (and camera) would have to pitch over so that the sun is behind the sattalite and camera. But that's me being picky.
In all, it was a pleasure. Keep up the good work!
*Stands up and applauds*
The responce from SEG
Haveing some history with this type of situations, I for one applaud you on your work. It was deleivered in a way that was accurate to the POV of the lost soul and did not simply glorify the killings.
It's not too often that someone uses meis-en-sein (pardon my horid spelling) in flash work. You deserved my 5/9 rating.
