Odd short about a mechanical bird poacher.. or something like that. Animated mainly by hand (with real live paper, no less!), which i vow never to do again.

The music track is "Summer Living" by mu-ziq, off the Brace Yourself EP. If you like it i recommend you grab a copy, as the heavily compressed clip in the movie doesn't do it any justice. The rest of the cd kicks ass too, btw.

Bitmaps and audio are obviously compressed a lot for newgrounds' sake; a larger copy can be found on my site.

Fantastic work! A couple things...

This was excellent and I'm glad I took the time to watch and give it a 5/5 mind you :) However, I think with some fine tuning, this could be a masterpiece. The main, and honestly the only issue with this is the framerate, At first I thought the animation was running slow in my browser, then I tried it in IE just to make sure it wasn't running slow in Safari and got the same results, and of course flash runs much faster in IE, so you must have the framerate set to 9 or lower. Just add more frames and crank up that framerate and you could do some great things with your skills in future projects. Great work! 5/5 - 10/10
