This is my Diploma project that I've been working on since November 2006. It is 10 minutes long and you will need Flash Player 8 to view it properly. I'm really anxious because only a few people had seen it before now, and this is my chance to get to know what real audience thinks about my work. Hope you'll enjoy it!

Thank you so much everyone for the Daily Feature, for the Front Page and for all the nice reviews :) I noticed that some of you had mentioned the Brackenwood series in relation to my movie. I would like to say that I consider Adam Phillips (chluaid) the best Flash artist ever. I often watch his movies and try to learn from them, especially the effects such as water, lighting effects and such. His level of animation is something to aim for to me, and it's a honour to know that my movie makes some people think about his works :)

Also, concerning the music, I would like to say that I did not find a suitable music, nor did I animate to follow a previously chosen melody. Alexander Ahura made the soundtrack specifically for this cartoon :)

I noticed that the boy's surroundings seem to change depending on how he sees them. At the beginning, his city seems dull and lifeless, so he sees his friends as robots. When he first enters the forest, he's in a new world, but he's not worried, so it looks mysterious and beautiful. And when the tribal kids scare him, the forest changes and becomes dark and menacing... It was a very nice touch, and I would love to see a sequel or maybe a continuation...

It's been 7 years since this was uploaded so I doubt the author is going to read my review but anyways, I thought this was well made. However, I thought the animation in Where do Clams come From? was better. The quality switches inbetween the scenes of the futuristic society and the jungle society and I don't know if it was intended or not but it's kind of ingenious! The way the robotic society has the cold flash tweened animation and the jungle society has the more organic frame by frame drawn animation is really cool! I don't if you are still doing animation or not but if so I hope it some day gets uploaded to newgrounds or youtube!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This was awesome, in terms of animation as much as in setting and atmosphere. Everythings smooth and atmospheric, the eyes glow, the screens flare, the shadows loom, the lighting plays upon the floor, bubbles rise in the tank... it's all very visual. Really cool idea with the aquarium TV, the whole concept of a robot world, both inspiring and depressing. There's moral, there's mood, theres machinery... a masterful movie!

Mysterious and beautifull. A great example of a story that is told without words.

It's been 3 years now since I saw it for the last time, and now it gives me all kinds of weird emotions.

This one is going into my thermonuclear blast-proof archive.

So imaginative! And it's nice to see his society isn't all bad, since they gave the cat backā€¦ even if it is a dull place.
