It needs some improvement. A good start though.

-The mustard yellow color needs to go. Please.

-Also, the text is a little small

-Please capitalize the words on the site when they need to be- looks a lot more professional when you have proper grammar

Just some thoughts.

P.S. Ow!!! I got punched in the face by a video clip!! biggrin biggrin

Yeah, IDK, maybe it is orange. Maybe it is yellow. Maybe I am color blind. Maybe not. Whatever, the point is that is is ugly. I think at least.

Well, how about trying to improve a little, and then posting? A tip: don't post or release films until it is done. If you know it is bad before you post it/release it, then we are going to think it's bad too. Just take your time and release it only when you are done and ready for the constrctive critiquing. smile

Just some advice, as I have been through this before, usually with me rushing and getting heat for it! sad

P.S. your FX Home banner isn't working!

You spelled 'productions' wrong in your banner.

Christ, that's stupid. How do people even make these mistakes, after going through the trouble to create a banner and add it to a website which features the same word spelled correctly several times.

Try again. The design is pretty good, but those kinds of mistakes are, from a professional perspective, completely unacceptable.

I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but I feel it took as much effort to click your link as it would have to build that site.

I'm just throwing that out there.

I visited the site.

I left after five seconds due to my eyes burning out of my skull.

I will never be the same again.

Thank you.

Change the color scheme. I'm sure you could do much better.

Makes sense. After everything I watch/read that awesome fist has produced I know I normally feel disoriented, pained at the task, and wish I hadn't walked into it. Just like a punch. smile

Sorry son, it does run on Vista. I've been using it just a tad bit for a tad bit amount of time. smile
Do you have a computer to find out what programs will run on it? confused
you've gotta make sure you download the latest version of Gimp and Blender if that's what you're going for.
heh, you do have a Puter. I didn't notice the icon before. Doh! tard

The undulating, chequered background is seriously distracting.

He's probably going to call it a high-grade 'carbon fibre' plate and not checkered grey. biggrin

It may not be world class, it may not be fashionable, it may look wizard-written, but I have seen worse. For a for-fun production company, it's fine - nobody is going to hire you based on it, but then you're not ready to be hired either, so no foul.

Above there's a mix of insults and suggestions, but if you like it, well that's just great smile

My only comment is that it looks like the "thumbs" on your "fist" logo are on the bottom when they should be on the top, or the finger splits are going the wrong way or something
