Top Gun... no doubt a movie that influenced every kid I knew growing up. Hair styles, sunglasses, flight jackets... everyone wanted to be Maverick and Iceman. And working on this project definitely brought back a ton of memories. The story is plane and simple. And though the film is full of quotable moments, there aren't too many "flaws" per say except for who is responsible for Goose's death. In the movie, Iceman and Maverick are in competition to be the "Best" and win the imaginary top gun trophy, so in their last combat training scene Iceman cuts off Maverick and Goose in order to get the winning kill shot. However, he's too close and can't get a lock. When he gives up and clears the shot for Maverick and Goose, his jet wash causes their plane to flat spin and Goose dies from ejecting too soon.So, the issue we have is that in the following scenes Maverick is the one questioned and HE actually takes the blame even though he wasn't really at fault. Not once does anyone say something about how Iceman pushed his way inside and being reckless which is actually against Iceman's whole character. So That's our flaw, and that's why our HISHE has Maverick punch Iceman in the face. :)Credits on this one are the usual compact crew. Tina, Bryan, and Me. Small crew, but still a challenging short to complete. I really enjoyed getting to animate the jet fighting on this one. Hope you all enjoyed it.
