MAT short
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy,Action/Adventure,Mystery/Suspense
Review Rating:

The flashbacks were very distracting. I think narrator with V.O. would work better. Purpose of showing that doctor/designer was not clear for me – especially after “Mat shakes off the flashback” – does he remember the whole operation? Again I didn`t get why he was given all of those features – experiment, becoming the leader? Without the context his whole journey and sacrifice makes no sense. He was created different, he died, nobody cared. Why the zombies looked at him after he saved them and what they did after that? Mat – He`s unique but has no purpose and has to figure it out himself. Within minutes he decides to be the savior for those who doesn`t care. If you wanted to show that many unique personalities dies almost absurdly – it worked. It`s hard to say there was any arc because he didn`t need/want anything. For a moment he wanted to be part a “society”, but moments later he died alone. WHY? Let us learn more about him and like him more before he will die in flames. Doctor – Who is he talking to? Is this a part of some bigger experiment. Give audience the reason to watch him on the screen (you will have to hire actor, create character and more animation if you go this way). Effort and money saved if you go with V.O. option and the story won`t lose anything. Is there any special connection between him and teddy bear? The flashbacks were very distracting.

Gravekeeper television
Genre: Animation
Review Rating:

The story was very good from an animation point of view, from the beginning 10 minutes I was interested in the story to see where it would go. Especially, by including the fight scene as one of the opening scenes in the script, it would keep the reader hooked to how far these scenes can truly go. I did care about some of the characters dilemmas, but I was most intrigued by the world that was created in this script. It definitely had quite a gothic touch to it with a lot of the scenes being held in Morgues and Cemeteries etc. I’d really like to have learned more about this place, is it small town/village on the outskirts? Or is it a large city filled with people? With this being a TV Series, I was expecting an ending that would progress the story to determine what the overall goal of the characters would be going forward. An example of this would be, Greg Is his goal mainly to follow in his families footsteps? Or is it to find a way to bring his parents back? I enjoyed this story from start to finish, although I would like to have seen more of a conclusion that opens up for the series to progress. Perhaps, Graham and Greg are travelling further due to frequent sightings of undead in other areas.
