Ladies and gentlemen this thread has reached peak autism.Reminds me of how the George Carlin narration of Saved From Scrap accidentally implied that Trevor the Traction Engine was a pedophile due to a combination of the voice George gave him and his expression when he said the line.
Sad that you feel that way about us.And to answer a pending question: Yes, the mocking trees were based on the Kiwifarms.
I agree the wogglebug doesn't look too bad. He looks happy and friendly I could see him in a kids show or something. However his voice is grating as fuck. No matter who voices him it just sounds bad. It's not their portrayal it's the design of the voice that's terrible.Sad that you feel that way about us.
Putting that aside, I have to agree with the criticisms given here.
Part of what makes a good animated film is... well the animation. And there's barely any to speak of here. The characters just stand around talking and talking and talking and not doing anything.
Kids have short attention spans, and if something isn't happening on screen, they'll lose interest rather quickly.
And really, as weird as it sounds, I wouldn't mind something like the Wogglebug having a decent story. You'll just have to be a bit more true to his roots and make him relatively unlikable at the beginning, but as the story goes on, he actually learns more and more about people, humbles himself and actually grows as a character.
The little girl could serve as a foil to him. Someone who's young but actually *is* smart and perhaps helps the Wogglebug see things he wouldn't normally.
Judging by the tree scene, you kind of had a good idea going with Wogglebug breaking down and crying over what the trees are saying to him. But it doesn't feel earned just yet.
And for the love of god, please do some better editing. Having a little girl in a compromising position like this:
sends a very bad message and people would rightly call you out for it.
One of the 22 rules of storytelling from Pixar is: "You gotta keep in mind what’s interesting to you as an audience, not what’s fun to do as a writer. They can be v. different." and for good reason. It's usually a terrible idea, especially when you're working on a project for an audience, to just go with the shit you find cool, while everyone else is clearly gonna hate it. In other words, don't just make movies for yourself if you want others to enjoy it too.And @Deadpool the girl's name is Sylvie, not Sophie. And I am sorry you do not like the voice of the Wogglebug but it actually does make me smile and that is all that matters as far as I'm concerned.
