Not bad for a first attempt, but...

When you or I walk, our left arm swings forward when we step forward with our right leg, and vice-versa.  Your stick figure's arms move WITH their respective legs.

I must say my first animation attempts were much worse...

I've got a little problem with the composition of the video... I've checked the time:
- The whole movie: 39s
- The anim8or animation part: about 10s

Ok, I understand you wanted to make it something more than just a short simple animation... But remember, some people (I'm one of them) don't like this kind of movies (I mean when the titles are twice as long than the movie...)


The animation looks really good (except for the hands movement as RudySchneider said), I like the way how he falls down :)

I understand you... But if you want to make a movie that people will find enjoyable, you must first think of what you enjoy and what you dislike... Honestly, do you read the titles and credits when you watch a movie?

I usually watch the movie itself and I don't really care about the "Modeling", "Animation", "Directed by", "Edited by" etc....     That's just my brainless oppinion, don't care of it...

I apologize for being so rude... I just... Good luck with your next projects :)

maybe it's a bit sad of me, but i love reading movie credits.  especially on films which have good music to accompany them, e.g. anything by John Williams :)

good first anim8tion, btw!

yep, spicy, John Williams is a film composer - imo, he's one of the greatest film composers of all time.  his work includes not only the Star Wars main theme (and pretty much all the other music for the saga too), but also nearly every film Spielberg has directed (including Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jurassic Park, etc), the first 3 Harry Potter films, and several other things as well.  here's a list of his composing credits - there's well over 100 of them!
