:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:I actually find it quite intriguing that Ponies do use their portal gun for actual travel instead of the usual pranks or shenanigans! Oh, and note to viewers, we Aperture Science are the ones inducing that thunderstorm; just another test that give rise to intriguing results!


One thing... Gave.It.My.Best... This is actually the first in which I threw almost everything that I know into the animation; all I want is just perfection... :icontwilightcrazyplz: But it seems that I fall short of it. Again... :iconepicfacepalm-plz:

This is also to test whether I'm comfortable if I am to be thrown off my comfort zone of humour and try a more serious type; in preparation of a future series that I'm planning. You guys give me the score.

Speaking of which, Feedback and/or critique is most welcome. And please don't hold back, if you think I deserve some scolding and constructive criticism, go hard on me.

Can't believe I've got to 6; which is the penultimate installment in the TWP series. After this, I'll have to work on something else (can't tell you, let's just say something with a certain cyan pegasus) before resuming on the final episode which will center on Twilight's revenge and some Rarity action :iconpsychotwilightclap:

I think I may start into flash animations again, because now it looks like its a way to express something...
You know? I've always wathed these MLP thinking with portals, and interpreted all of 'em as funny and only comedy, but today I've found this one...deep...emotional. Really professional and most of it, original

I admire how you used to put all your efforts, knowings from animating, eerything to came out with this, truly adorable indeed, looked like it was from an original episode from the series and so, sort of it expected at the half of watching
Anyway, I admire your job, keep it up! :iconrainbowdashsaluteplz:

The Artist thought this was FAIR
31 out of 31 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision: I have to say this is probably your most ambitious one yet, and just now noticed you say you put everything you had into it? well after comparing this with your last one IT REALLY SHOWS! the amount of planning and figuring out how to properly convey Fluttershy wanting to be with a friend to whether out the scary storm was very well done, mostly perfect.

A 4.5 mostly because that sudden music change and Twilight home alone plotting really killed some of the real emotional tension that was built up for Fluttershy and the other two's little heart warming scene. Seriously it killed the mood a bit after you went through so much to build up to it =(

How it could of improved:

1. adding some credits between scenes. i.e. pan the camera back with a fading to black with audio doing the same.

2. Once fully pitched black you could of paused a couple, maybe 3 whole seconds and THEN do a Galdos BLINKS/opening her eyes to Twilight throwing suggestive revenge into her mind.

Originality: I like that while you follow the world of Portal and it's many features, that you don't let the basic old functions of the portal gun only working on white smooth surfaces restrict you from coming up with these great ideas, plus they eventually were trying to get it to work in how you have it working in this series anyways so let's buck that up to these portal guns being a higher calibur over the original model :P

Technique: I liked the many nuance added to this like the mailbox animations, the diving under the closet dresser and eyes poking out was really well done. The animation was really great...

...HOWEVER small points you slipped up on and, it was a very un-animated tail that looked like it really got the least amount of attention to if at all. Any amount of bounce or lift would of worked than nothing at all as she walked off her couch to open the door.

The smile '*squee*' as she noticed she was crushing the bot was cute but awkwardly animated and really reminded me that I was watching a flash animation. You SO almost had this episode! it is by far your best I've seen.

I can see that mainly squish and stretching of the mouths and bounce animation on mane/tails is all you need to really improve on!

Impact: I'm going to have to assume you couldn't visit Pinkie Pie or Twilight due to lack of properly being able to get a clear shot inside their homes. Also going to have to assume that AJ was inside her home with AB, GS, BM as she'd want to be there with her family if anything case AB (or knowing AJ) needing a pony to sleep with.

Still while it was sweet to have her two best friends by her side at the end. I was expecting the girls to think of Fluttershy being alone at home in the scary weather and want to rush over to make sure she was alright. This was just as good though and like I said it really got to me, it was a beautiful scene ^^

The fact you made me actually feel for Fluttershy's fear of thunder and being convincingly afraid to being alone during a storm and desperately wanting to be with a friend to weather it out was very touching and built up nicely as she kept trying to look for a friend. The constant disappointment of her friends not being home and being alone ended up overshadowing her fear for a while, which when you did that shifting of the camera to show her friends behind her well, longer story short, it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

So even with that Buzzkill Glados I am very well impacted by this video and loved it a great deal. This was a great change of pace and was very in character! I can't express it more <3 (I could but by the gods no one really wants to see that!)

i didn't know she had a toy robot and it said" exuse me your squishing me". i really like that robot i guss that is the pony's technology (and that portal maker thing)
CHAD2430 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015
The portal-maker is the Aperature Science Handheld Portal Device, a device from the game called "Portal".
Not trying to be rude, that game is pretty old at this point.
Great mechanic though.

Good day!
