The animation was fairly nice and the pinwheeling camera movements were very impressive. The back and forth between the characters, however, didn't feel very dynamic and, as such, I think the characters' movement seemed more rigid because of it.
The atmosphere of the piece was kind of goofy, unfortunately. Even though it was basically a movement showcase, I think I would have enjoyed it more with some improvements background details - things like the set, the crowd noises, etc.
The animation was smooth, and the tricking was very well done. So well done I even started to feel some nausea. It did start to drag on after a while though, and I thought it could have used some more atmosphere like Jargon said.
Great video! Very well done. When you did the camera twists I screamed out WOW!
Very nice, some impressive techniques were shown. Did he a do b-twist or a b-kick?
That was really good keep up the good work!
Very well done as usual. The animation was done amazingly well, as were the camera angles. I really enjoyed this.
This animation is superb! I definitely enjoyed this film.
I liked the camera twist replays.
The animation was some of the smoothest that I have ever seen.
You're using Pixelmotion or something similar to smooth out the animation, right? It's incredibly smooth but it looks sort of artificial to me. I like the kind of oomph and slight choppiness you can get in stop motion for fast/violent movements, which is sort of what I would expect in parkour but this all looks sort of slow to me.
It's still an impressive technical display, though!
Thanks for all the comments, guys!
I did use a plugin called Twixtor to slow down and smooth a few shots, basically just the ones that are obviously in slow motion and have motion blending artifacts, but most of the tricks were at normal speed, and I actually removed frames I'd animated from a number of shots to speed the motion up. The tricks are sort of meant to be a little slower than they should be, since I wanted to avoid people having to replay a trick 5 times to figure out exactly what they saw, which I often do when watching real videos of this stuff. Maybe not as relevant here, but it was an experiment.
