A corrupt businessman with mafia ties is visited by an unwelcome guest.

Philosophy (do not read until afterwards)-

Whenever I write a story, I always try to throw in little nuances for people to catch. With this tale, however, well... the thing's friggin' loaded, for your viewer enjoyment.

For anyone interested and/or familar with Greek Mythology, the guy that takes Baxter Powell away is the modern day Charon, the ferryman of the dead. If you'll notice, his briefcase bears the insignia of his double hammer.

Also, on the bookshelf are the scales of justice. There's a lot of character blocking (putting people either on the left of the right of someone or something to resemble either the noble or the ignoble character). He pulls up in a limo (the ferry of the roads). The dialogue also contains many little subtlties for you to goggle over.

Anywho, that's all I have for now.

Intresting

It wasnt bad at all. The plot didn't really make sense to me however it was pretty cool looking. The music went along with the mood very well and the voice acting wasnt too bad. Really all you need to work on is the movement of your charachters. Keep up the good work!

They are rather jumpy, but I was on a deadline... good learning lesson, though.

I won't go into the plot, unless more people question, as I don't want to give it away without someone watching. Thanks for the review.

Great!

You did a really good job with this one.
Only two things were problems for me, the voices were not clear enough and needed some volume.
Also, the contract card didn't stay up on the screen long enough for me to read it all.
Too bad this really didn't happen to ALL corrupt businessmen, but then that would be ALL of them wouldn't it?
Nice job!
Fiven!

Interesting concept.

There are a few glitches you need to work out in this flash in particular, but nothing too serious. Just a little flaw here and there - I've seen far worse, so don't worry yourself about it too much.

The animation was pretty decent. Nice style, but it could be a little smoother. Work on your audio as well, if you're able to. Though the voice acting was good, it was unclear at times, and hard to follow.

Other than that, this was an interesting flash. Original premise, and open for a possible sequel, or even a prequel. Keep working!


SketchMichaels responds:

I'm glad you liked the concept. I don't know how happy I am with the way this turned out, either, but this was my submission for The Greatest Story Never Told, and the deadline ends in... oops... fifteen minutes, so I had to make due with what I had.

Thanks for the review :)
