My second entry for the 2017 AIM contest. This one was inspired by some fantastic artwork made by Pelboy that you can view here: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/pelboy/school-called-today

I also thought of a short story that continues Pelboy's description:

0:04 – ‘School called today. They say you clawed a girl across the arm. She might need stitches.’

‘…’

0:13 – ‘This isn’t what your dad would want.’

0:21 – ‘How would you know what he would want? How would you know anything?’

0:25 - *The child then runs away
‘Wait!’

0:32 – (Kid) ‘What the heck does she know?!

0:48 - (Kid) ‘If dad were here, he’d be able to help, he always helped me when I really needed it…’

1:01 - *Shows kid sitting on ground

1:09 – (Mom finds him) ‘I’ve been looking for you everywhere! I was worried sick that I wouldn’t be able to find you.’

‘…’

1:13 - ‘Listen, I know that I can’t replace him, but you know I only want what’s best for you.’

‘Shut up! You always say that, but you never really mean it! If he were here, he’d really know what to do, but… but…’

1:25 – ‘But he’s gone! He’s gone and he’s never coming back!’

*She then goes up and hugs him

*The child begins weeping

2:16 - ‘I’m sorry that dad isn’t around anymore, but I’m all you’ve got and I can’t lose you too. I love you.’

‘I love you too mom.’

reallly nice track! i think the first section, until the first minute, is my favorite part. when the mix gets more dense it lacks a lot of bass and sounds oddly filtered, like you highpassed the whole thing.

the melody in the first section is FANTASTIC though!


CloakedSoup responds:

Thank you! This is the kind of feedback I love to get! Glad you enjoyed it and I'll keep that in mind for the future.

The storytelling here presented with the artwork makes for a satisfying tale emotionally and aurally. Some frequencies and volume leveling could be better, but taking the art and running with the idea -- I have respect for that!

Thank you for the great feedback! I'll keep that in mind for my next piece.
