“Reaping for Dummies” (2013)

This student film has an excellent idea for a cartoon (there’s something very Looney Tunes-esque about its core concept), and there are even some well executed gags. The problem with this one? It’s too short. Way too short. This premise is so great, that honestly, it probably could’ve worked for a full half-hour short. Instead, it’s just three minutes long; that’s barely enough time for the set-up, let alone the whole short. Still though, the animation is actually quite solid, and like I said, it’s entertaining enough despite it’s rather rushed pacing. This is a short that I could definitely see getting remade, because the concept and potential for it is so great.
