Second half of the 19th century. The Poet struggles to live through his fiancée's unexpected death. He finds refuge in writing.
so thats what been eating your time every night
Right after the first production screenshots i knew this was going to be something special and as always you didnt disappoint me. Very stylish way of animating and drawing out the environments. It kind of has the noir feeling that i found in aura and smile too, complete with a femme fatale. But it is still very different in the careful facial expressions and the subtle colour use.
I found this animation also alot more personal that the rest of your work so far, since it isnt focused on a destroying aura or the pressure of the mass but it centers around an individual and his perception of reality. Interesting subject, especially since its told from a writers perspective and not just from some random angry adult. Now it leaves the question for the viewer how much of the animation was 'real' and how much was the writers fantasy.
Personally, I didnt find the music perfect for the story. It certainly matched the moments, but the heavy hard rock kind of distracted from the insane climaxes. I think these would come out even stronger with no music at all (and only sound effects) or with very minimal scary music. But this is just a matter of directing. On all the technical aspects it was flawless.
Now get your ass in gear to animate the flash that you have been teasing us with for the past 2 (?) years. Its 1:40 am, the day is just starting.
awsome flash very good choice of music and very well done .i just had trouble trying to understand what was happening but i guess i have to look at the flash abit closer next time. excellent work.
I was impressed with your timing to the music. (Great choice BTW) Can't wait to see more.
I,ll give you a perfect score for this. because you really deserve it!
i've been waiting for you to release a new movie. and now you have! this surpassed all my expectations. you are a true genious. i love the way the woman changed from good to evil. and even thought his wife came down to him as an angel to prevent him from hanging himself. he still chose the reapers way. i really hope this animation gets everything it deserves!
After the bleak 1984-esque darkness that was SMILE, and the hilarious mind-bending devilish wimsy that was Polsupah, I couldnt think you'd find a way to top those entries.
But you did. This film ecompasses all good things flash animation could and should be. Fantastic storytelling coupled with marvelouslly detailed animation coupled with an eerie character design, beautiful snowy backrounds, and utilizing some of flash 8's new blur special effects all summed up together in a disturbing portratyal of a man's madness. Poe?
This is the new bar for flash animation.
Bring a buddy.
