Staff Review

It's short, it's sweet, and it's-[BLAM].
It's The Sniper, a remake of a sketch from the British comedy show Alas Smith and Jones. Although not perfect, this short is quite entertaining, and stands on it's own well technically. Animation is about average, as is Cinematography (although there is some very well done, tight editing). The story and audio is taken directly from the original sketch, and camera quality is not crystal clear. That said however, this film is still quite enjoyable, and nothing in it really detracts from the gag. If you have a dark sense of humor and are looking for something short to occupy you, the Sniper is definately worth your time.
