UPDATE: Woot! 25K views! And in the top 50! Shiny. Very much so. Thanks a munch to you viewers and all of your comments, good, and less than so. It really helped some kinks in my movie, as well as ecouraged me to make more stuff. You guys really hit on all sixes. :D

Tweaked with a few minor quirks in the animation. Some obvious, some not so much. Let's see what you catch, ya? :3

Frontpaged! Lovely! You Newgroundian folks are all aces, you are. :D

Some of you've been asking what grade I got for the project. Although I haven't asked, I'm pretty sure it's a good grade considering my teacher's been ranting about it to her other classes. ¬¬;

Basically, it wouldn't work on her computer, but it did on the computer lab across the hall. But she wants to figure out a way the whole class can see it because she likes it a bunch.

ALSO! Major wootpoints to my friend Veedo, for sending me the actual song itself. You rock. :D

Hey. This took me.. a little over 2 weeks to finish at 18 FPS, aaand, my back hurts like nothing else now. :D

Anyway, this is for a school project, where we had to choose a protest song from the 60's and make a music video about it. I chose this, and decided to bust my arse on it, not just for the sake of a grade, but for the sake of trying make something really moving to people.

Sorry for my yammering, please enjoy!

This was great.

I loved it. I never thought about this song this way. I think it's one of the greatest song that has been made and one of the flash. This flash really touched me, I think you done a great story that was based on lyrics. I wish there would be more songs like this to inpire creating more flashes like this.

One of the best for it's time :)

Sound of silence, wow the music the made back then... and the flash xD

Concept was based on a song. It wasn't really all that clear, and I didn't really see how nuclear war connected with the neon light, but to each his own. I can't say a lot about the concept, but the hook was when it ended. It was so bliss. He was painting a door and the flowers outside, knowing he would die. It made me think what was going on in his mind. But I do get the nuclear war and tree thing! If you don't understand people who read reviews then please try dropping a bomb at your local bomb dropping zone and you will see that smoke thing that rises up that looks like a tree... to me anyways...

Graphics... 2006 flash... I was like ten years old back then. Graphics were cartoon anime? Is there such a thing, but it was so close to being in the anime style, but still being cartoony. It's nice to see noir parts and then the parts where he's dreaming.

Music! Can't say... music was not yours but Simon and Garfunkle are awesome.

9/10! Not the best, but good. It would've been 8.6/10 but let's just round it off. It kept the audience hooked and it was refreshing to watch besides it being made six years ago. I'm guessing flashes like this paved the way for the kind of flashes we have now.

Thank you for your contribution to the art that is flash :)
