Since I spent quite a bit of time on this video and didn't get chosen, I figured I'd put it out there for people to enjoy/criticize/ignore/whatever.
Not bad at all :) You did well imo.
I have been watching CGP Grey for a decade and I enjoyed this.
I wonder if there is a person that got accepted
Apparently there was, because he has had an animator working for him for a few years now.
I was the 5,000th like
You did very well imo
WHERE ARE THE ACCEPTED ONES??
I think there was just one accepted one, and I don't think it was ever posted.
Really impressive, particularly as CGP Grey obviously made it hard to animate. I have found when hiring you often have more than one candidate that you are sure could do the job, but you have to make a choice…
it reminded me of charlie chaplain. He once took part in a competition (hiding his real identity) to imitate "Charlie Chaplin". Ya... And he came out third... Feelings are so arbitrary and subjective, no amount of scrutiny is enough to tell something is like some other thing or not...
I thought you did a great job. Hopefully you’ve found good stuff to do instead!
How was this rejected
I enjoyed it, and now I will ignore it! … But seriously, pretty good. Don't have any substantive criticism; the only things I didn't like were places where your style differed in some ways from the CGPGrey videos' style, which is what I was expecting, so that threw me off, but that's not actually an indicator of anything bad.
I thought this was an actual video damm sucks you were rejected
It's really good
Can I send the application via fax or is it too late?
Very late this was years ago
Why did this get recommend 4 years later
Great submission. I’m curious as to who won this competition?
The only reason I think this was rejected was because I don’t think he does that many cuts. Like when he said first place, you cut to a 1st place badge fully cutout and a white background. It would’ve been nice if it was like somewhere in his body or something. I’m probably not explaining this well lol.
I'm glad this popped into my recommended. You've got a new subscriber
I'm just piling on. You're amazing! This is a great style, and I can see some similarities between other ISsoftsrs. But these guys are right, you're timing is just different. Not wrong, but different.

I can see why this is denied. This is too quality for CGPGrey. Don't worry; it's awesome!
Extremely good quality man it's slightly faster pace than grey normally does but that's literally the only thing that isn't perfect
You almlst got it, but not quitw.
Kind of like your spelling...
This style has a few notable differences
Omg I first genuinely felt this is a CPG grey video. Oh wow good job you should be accepted
"Why show something for more than 1 frame at a time? The viewers can just pause the video if they're THAT attached!"
Wow, quite good
its better then the real thing
nah i can see why this one lost the faces on some of the figures are inconsistent, the path shown here at 0:43 is not only too fast but is also not a perfect arc just a lot of things wrong with it also don't ask why I'm commenting so late, it seems that youtube is just recently recommending these out
All fun and games till CGPGrey hires a mass murderer who animates as a hobby
It was rejected. Maybe was not what he needed. But don't feel bad, because Is AMAZING.
After watching all grey videos for the 100th times, this video shows up. I honestly thought it was grey for 3 seconds before I read the title/description!
Why do these get constantly get recommended lol
Getting people do do a considerable amount of free work to be even considered as an applicant for a job is a huge dick move
Well how else is he going to find the right person for the job?
This is so well made. I can´t understand how did this get rejected
The main reason I can tell is the fps for things like motions, mouths, etc. They made it one frame for a mouth opening, one frame for a hand raising, etc.
WOW I ACTUALLY DIDN'T KNOW THAT YOU WERE NOT CGP GREY I THOUGHT YOU WERE THAT'S HOW REALISTIC IT IS DK WHY IT WAS REJECTED
see you in a bit when this goes viral :)
This is perfect
Task failed successfully. I like this, but it isn’t Grey’s style. I’d absolutely watch a channel edited like this though.
realy good, the paper plane was genious
I tought it's his video LMAO
thats very close, but he does less individual frames and more animation
The characters are very Grey, but not as much the items.
The thing with all these applications is they’re very good, but just not in his style. Although, Grey should realise that he’s the only one who animates in his style.
The other thing that people need to realize is that all these applications were made almost 5 years ago, and grey's style has changed because he now has someone else who animates for him. So, actually Grey's style now is not exactly his style, but more his animator's combined with his.
This is excellent.
It's very similar, but it needs more smooth (for lack of a better word) animations. CGP does less instant cutting and I feel like that was why it was rejected. Good stuff though, keep up the good work!
It’s a shame this was rejected, should’ve Rick rolled him.
I actually thought this was CGP Grey before reading anything lol
I thought it's Gray for a moment
I thought I was watching his vid lmao
I was going to say if this is what got reject i want to see what got picked but I didn't know he had other animators so I guess that person was that seamless
I actually thought this was him, not joking. I was watching the video without seeing the beginning. I am serious, I literally thought this was him
Wow, this is being reconmended to me, but like why.
For whatever reason, after four years, the ISsofts Algorithm promoted this video... why?? 😂
To fast and to little animations.
I was like huh, Grey really had a different style 4 years ago, then I realized it was a rejected application and it all made sense. It’s not bad quality just obviously not Grey.
How well it matches his style is certainly up for debate, but if you go back a few years, he did have a different style. Which might be partly because things change over time, but also because he hired an animator 4 years ago who now works with him on the videos.
Are you still looking for a job? There were lots of numbers I needed to calculate
I choose: Ignore and whatever and like for the joke :D
It doesn’t feel exactly like Grey’s style but it’s great in its own way
Ok now show us yours so we can see how different it is.
Union jack, Watch your back, Catterack, Lots of slack, Tick tack, *COFFEE*
I'm pretty sure this was in Grey's top 3 pick. Very accurate to his style
Clpse but some lines too thick and some drawingas arent his stule
It's close but doesn't hit the mark
it rly isnt imo.
I feel like the mouths are a little bit noticeable as something not in his style, great job though
this felt like a CGP Grey video most of the time! You're very good! Did you get any feedback from the CGP Grey team on why it didn't work ultimately?
Nope. All I know is that he announced that that he'd picked somebody, and I hadn't heard anything from him, so I knew it wasn't me.
Must have been a strong candidate
Critique: Could match his style better. A little too much detail, and could be blockier. I find that CGP’s style is a very wireframe/bare-bones style with simple lines, filled color shapes, and few minor details. Otherwise, this is good!
Return to *monkE*
Well, It wasn't really Greys Art Style, I understand why he didn't chose you, but it is actually good.
I think the colour scheme is off, and it's a bit too jumpy between scenes.
It felt too random and fast
One day the algorithm will let me see the accepted application... one day.
At 1:06 the rolled die went from a 2 to a 5, when 2 and 5 are always on opposite sides of a D6. This is probably why you got passed over, because other than that glaring inattention to detail, I thought it was really good. --- PS: Do I need to declare the /s?
/s aside... that is an error I should not have made. I was never really happy with the animation of the die, but I had a pretty short window to create the whole thing, and I also had to learn how to draw vector files since I'd never done them before, so the die animation got neglected.
I think you were really close to getting the job, it's probably the quick cuts that made you lose over others. Other than that, it's barely possible to see the difference between this video and an "actual" cgp video.
_sweats in whether the first is "0" or "1"_
yeah, if I remember correctly, I considered the same issue, but all I had to do was try the 100th, 101st, and 102nd numbers and see which one worked.
Bro i wouldn’t be able to the the difference ngl
i eat 12 kids a day, can i Appli?
Man how did you get rejected this video fooled me. I thought you pirated a video from CGP grey
I seriously thought I was watching one of his actual videos.
this is cool! def in his style, i think maybe some of the sprites you used were a little too jagged, though that likely made no difference for the application since that would perhaps be one of the easiest things to change? idk, but nice!
@Scott Strosahl I only say jagged in comparison to grey’s usual style, that certainly must’ve been a challenge!
We were required to create all our own sprites (obviously), but I had never created vector files before, so I was learning how to draw in illustrator while also doing all the animation, and we had a fairly short turn around window, so it wouldn't surprise me if some were a little iffy. :)
Im very impressed , don't be discouraged!
Why this randomly showed up on my feed 4 years later while I have to physically search for the videos I actually want to watch will forever be a mystery. 😂
I was watching/listening to cortex on ISsofts earlier. Maybe that caused the algorithm to think I'll enjoy this.
@Scott Strosahl again why ISsofts thought I’d like this is weird
That's the algorithm for you...
I understand why it was rejected as it doesn't quite feel like his style in several areas, but still very impressive!
Then again I still love this application anyway
you are comparing it to recent videos, this one is very spot on with ones back then
This is his old style
I really thought this was cgp and grey at first, but then saw the channel name. really good.
Wait this isn't cgp grey?
While I can see why this might've been rejected, it's still pretty damn good! I hope you found a fun job putting your skills to work since making this!
It felt just a little bit faster but thats the only thing that is different and thats not bad at all =p
I thought I was watching a CGP Grey video. I read the description first, watched the video, got confused, read your name... wait... you're not Grey... Then I finally understood.
This is good. I hope he kept your name on file.
I keep getting these in my recommended but no one got the job
Someone did... Don't know who though
This got recommended to me yesterday, but the channel was different
Why is this rejected This is amazing and if I didn’t see the title I would think this is a real CGP great video You see what I did there
Its nit quite the stule though. Its close but not quite
it was rejected because even though it is great, there were many great applications. also this isn't exactly like CPG grey's style while other ones probably maybe definitely were if not the exact style, much closer.
That cataract is very clever lmao
Yeah, I chuckled at that one!
That and the 'who am I kidding' are probably my favorite little jokes I put in there. Oh... and the paper airplane. :)
It is great, but there can be only one.
