++oh ma gawd, first award?! Front page!? Thanks Tom! (and everyone who gave it a 5!) This is really fantastic.
-The plot needs a fair bit of clearing up, so here's a review from Jagermeyer that explained it pretty well.
"i think it represents the fact that there is always someone who is out to destroy nature for the profits it brings...but theres always someone who is there to defend the remaining patch of life.....eventually we will meet a middle ground where the 2 can work as one cohersive unit....not hurting nature....benefiting off the life that can survive after its all said and done."
++If you're feeling generous, I'd be really happy if this got submitted to the experimental section.

Hey everyone, thought I'd submit something else using various household textures. This project started as me and my friend Luc looking through my sketchbooks to see if we could find something animatable, and this flower drawing was one of the best bets. The story is really just that... um... well, that its often a good idea to stand up for what you think is right, and to continue to fight for that. It's 2359 frames long, running at 24 frames per second, which balances out to 98.2 seconds. Almost all the art is hand drawn onto paper with a simple black pen. The rest is flash. Enjoy the show.

I saw it! (See what I did there?)

Well I finally saw Treekeepers, like you recommended. I think I should have gotten front page really... Nahh only joking mate, this was a really good flash, congrats on the awards, you deserve em =)
I can see the idea of two cultures coming together, and conflicting, it was a great movie all in all, well done.
(If you hadn't guessed I'm not good with words lol)

... huhh

Ummm I didn't really get it.. Good flash, and great drawn animation, but.. What was that big machine thingy and what was that gun?!?!?


MorrowDays responds:

:D The big machine thingy, was infact, nothing more than a big machine thingy. nothing else.
The gun was a gun too. :)
glad you liked the art!

Wow.

Everything about this movie is so original, it blows my mind. The art style is unlike anything else I've seen while being reminiscent of Yoshi's Story, if you're familiar with the game. The lack of sound furthers the style of the piece, because some things just don't need to be said. Treekeepers is clever without being graphically violent or offensive and plays out better, and smarter than a lot of other things that make it to the front page. I guess... thank you.


MorrowDays responds:

No problem, seeing people get it for what it is pleases me. thanks for the PM as well, what I meant by less abstract concepts was not that I'd reduce the integrity of the ideas, but more that I'd do something more believable.

thanks!
