My second submission! Finally finished episode 1 of a 3 episode series called The Tainted. The story starts out with an average young man, Seth, and his girlfriend, Jess, in a world that seems to be hell. Seth mysteriously escapes but Jess does not. A mysterious figure gives Seth an offer to save Jess' life.

*story discontinued* My friend and I realized we just rushed into the story without thinking it through, so we've decided to stop this project and start with a new one. (The Tainted might be reworked and resubmitted after a new script). Thanks.

Very nice

I liked this idea a lot, but the one thing i have a probelm with is the voice for the hooded guy, I mean everything was great up until the part where the hooded guy appeared, his voice acting was too fast and soo used, its like i heard this voice soo many times already. Besides this everything was great, I like the idea, and the animation. Keep it up.

Needs a little work.

It's a good idea to start and well animated for the most part. Voice acting was more or less of a success and the last scene with the hooded figure was off-track.
What you could do for futur episodes, is to work on what you want the viewer to see. For example: When the guy woke up and saw his girlfriend lying in there bed, there could have been a big close up on her face. The hooded figure which followed was off-track because he doesn't really fit with the everday environment. What I mean by that is that his a sinister figure and he just there, like if he were the caracters mom. What could've ben done here, is to dim the lights, put off a sinister environment so he'll blend in and also to add some music, sinister music ofcourse, so we will feel his presence even more.

Well that's all the advice I have for you. You got something pretty good here and I see the intention behind it, but it's really the little things in a movie that will make it either a success or a failure.

Nice Job, captured my attention.

Hy dude!!!
Regarding the Tainted Ep. 1 i have to say that the story line have great potential, I enjoy the part when the shadow monster(i don't know the monster name's ) put out the bones from his hand and use it as a weapon(cool idea is like a Baraka), then at the end is pretty cool when the shadow thing says" ...give me 100 lives". I'll be waiting for the rest of the animation and please kill kill kill those monsters!!!

good one

that was a very nice animation. this one had a very nice storyline to it, good graphics, good characters, excellent choice of music, offered some very nice entertainment and your efforts were nice. i know i strongly look forward to seeing the other 2 episodes in this trilogy, and glad to see this one win an award too.
