Wow, I really like this. You've taken quite a different approach to anyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if this helps you gain a few more subscribers at least. I like the animation, very smooth and professional. I think we have one of the winners here! 5/5!

That was a fantastic film. I'm so glad I could be a part of this. The story was brilliantly written, and all of it lead up to a great ending. Keep up the awesome work, I look forward to seeing what you do in the future! mini/bigsmile

The camera work, lighting, and movements were amazing! The only thing that kind of was a minus was that the story seemed to drag a little bit. Other than that, You incorporated the COTY universe very well into this film!

Great entry! I like the approach you took; it's unlike any of the others. You did a good job of combining existing characters with new ones and making it feel natural. The voice acting was well done as well, and the neighbour and Balser voices fit nicely.

Dude! You did it! It's awesome man!
Well done. I notice a few scenes were cut, but I'm guessing that was due to time constraints.

Great entry! This film fits into the world of the original perfectly! mini/smile

Great job with the animation and creating a story that explores Balser's dark side. My only criticism would be it could have used some editing to tighten it up. It was a little heavy on scenes of characters simply walking - with no dialogue; although I certainly understand it is hard to self edit.

Great job.  You put a lot of work into this entry.  I really liked the use of lighting in some of the scenes.
