Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Provided you can overlook the spelling error in the title, this one isn't bad at all. Though it draws heavily from Fancypants' excellent film of the same type and features an ending you can see coming a mile away, this short is put together quite well. A dizzying glut of digital camera movements somewhat overshadows some equally smooth genuine camera moves, but the equally smooth animation can't be overlooked. Sound and effects do the job, but aren't mind-blowing. It's not spectacular, but it's certainly a quality effort cut from the same cloth as several more well-known films.
