Part one of two: Rival Builders
(Second part arriving after an Xmas special)

Matt and his kleptomaniac ways force the others to build an extention to their house, they soon find they aren't the only amateur builders in the neighbourhood.

Alright... so this is my first Critique! If I miss something, my bad. I'll try not to ruin it though. Alright, I guess I'll explain my ratings.

Vision: 4.5 stars: The vision is really good. The frames go together very well with the awesome artwork, it's quite hard to believe aliens didn't make this <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/x/x…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/>

Originality: 5 stars: No one has ever seen a movie like this! It's wonderful, with great characters and a original theme.

Technique: 4 stars: I've seen better drawing techniques, but in MY opinion its the best. Speaking generally, there are quite a few better styles, but hey, this is an animation.

Impact: 4.5 stars: This made me crack up so much, I almost suffocated. The only thing that made me laugh more is WTFuture.

Overall, wonderful job on this!

AWESOME, NO OTHER WORDS TO SAY! I mean this is so funny and I love all these videos. I cried when I heard Edd was gone, but i chose to think he would rather his fans to continue watching and enjoying these videos. So here I am <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> I'm a huge fan of this one especially. Also I love the "Oh and uh, remember to get the nai-" I always laugh so hard when that happens! Thank you Edd for bringing so much joy to so many people with these videos! I wish you eternal joy, and cola. Be well Edd!

This is definitely a respectable piece of animation right here. I was impressed with how he animated their mouths. Clearly, a good amount of planning and effort went into it. For the most part, the mouths sync very well with the speech, which is a difficult but very important part of animations that include speaking characters. While the mouths may not seem like much to most viewers, I think they're animated very well partially because the simplicity compliments his humor very well (i.e. adding brief glimpses of more detailed, but comically unnatural faces).

I perceived the basic theme of the animation as a somewhat simple, hand-drawn style. I don't know much about Edd Gould or his animations, but I believe this style was done on purpose in order to add a sense of innocence which would compliment the styles of comedy used in the animation. I believe this due to his excellent use of shadows, details, blurring effects, and his unique method of perspective drawing.

Lastly, I noticed he pokes fun at Subliminal Messaging in this animation (e.g. "BUY MORE COLA" spelled in colorful magnets stuck to the refrigerator). I enjoyed watching this animation from both a critical perspective and a normal viewing perspective.

Overall, the setting/plot of this animation isn't very original, but it's definitely presented in an original and uniquely humorous manner. His passing is truly a great loss to the animation community, but Edd Gould's animations will live on to inspire new generations of animators for years to come.

P.S. To my fellow deviants, if you believe a critic gives too much credit for most aspects of a deviation, don't be afraid to label it as "Unfair". Remember that being easy and giving too much credit can be just as bad as judging too harshly and not giving enough credit.

Very funny. Awesome to watch. Probably the best thing you could come up with. THIS IS THE BEST THING MADE BY ANYONE EVER!

But seriously, the best animation you can have is right here. I have liked the advancements you have made over the years in witch you started to animate. You are a GREAT animator, Edd, and I would like to see more of what you do. probably a tut on the basics. I also thank you for making the HAF Part 2. Nice ending.

And I would also like help you by wishing you well and that many good things in life happen to you.

Sincerely,

So glad this is on deviant! It doesn't have to buffer, and if YouTube is blocked, we can just go here! So happy <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Also great quality, Fantastic script, and beautifully animated. I love the fact that this has two parts, although the second one isn't posted here, they are both amazing videos.

I give five stars for all categories because this video is worth much more than five stars. Ten maybe, or fifteen. I love everything about it, and i wish you well in the other animations.

Also, Get well soon! Everyone's hearts are with you to kick cancers butt!

Sincerely and Honestly,
