Hi all, I hope you all enjoy this Flash film. It's about a Cuttlefish named Cuddly that wants to fly... seriously...'s a metaphor, find the meaning. (or find my comment in the reviews)

Enjoy the dramatic adventure...

EDIT - Unfortunately, the frame rate is down. The animation is supposed to run at 20 fps however in the browser it seems to be running at 16. This isn't good because the shots are meant to be in sync with the music. If you have Flash Player 7 installed then simply find cuttlecould.swf in your temporary internet files folder, copy it, paste it to another folder and open it. It will run beautifully. If someone can help me fix this problem with the browser I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

Wow... that was played out very well.. its one of the best flashes I've seen in a while. Can I buy Cuddly off of you?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


The animation is without a doubt some of the best ive seen however, its all dampened down byh the poor storyline,it bored the hell out of me, amazing flash skills you have, I think this was the wrong story to animate though. Brilliant on the eye bbut very boring and pointless, i gave it 5 for the visuals


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Definately alot better then most crap.

But I disagree with the last guy. I don't think the animation was anywhere near the quality/fluidity of Bitey of Brackenwood. Also, i think it'd be better if you would have put in more for the sound effects, and less on "dramatic music". The splash turning into a grid, turning into the credits was a nice touch at the end. Good, but I think you can do alot better :)

That is some really amazing animation. The music selection, the style, the graphics....just amazing.
The only thing keeping it from beating the likes of Bitey of Beckenwood is the lack of sound effects, (I only remember 2 at the moment, footsteps and the garage door) and it wasn't to action packed, but I don't think you intended it to be that way anyway. I don't think anyone would watch a flash called cudly and expect a matrix-ish fight scene. Which brings me to my next point, it's a shame that some people wont watch this because of its name. It really is phenominal work and is the best 3d animation I have ever seen in a flash, EVER.
