Well hello Newgrounders, long time, no see. If you've wondered where I've been all this time, well, school has been sucking up my soul. I apologize for neglecting NG all this time. it feels like forever since I submitted something. This is actually my first flash submitted since I got Flash 8.

Anyways, this is an animation I made during the last semester of school at IUPUI. I originally made it for my school's biannual VisionFest contest that was being held August 16-18th of this year. Buuuut...ultimately I got beat out by an animation about bird calls. T'was a shame.

What inspired me to make this flash was actually the music, Kismet by Bond. As I was listening to it one day, I was suddenly overcome by this storyline that was going through my head as the music was playing. Kinda like watching a Fantasia short. I knew what I had to do... I have to admit, this didn't turn out as majestic as I imagined it, but I guess I'm still somewhat novice in animation. Also, some of the scenes lag a little, I'm sorry.

To get this done in time for the deadline, I acquired help from a fellow Newgrounds artist, Zombie-Pimp. He did a lot of the backgrounds and a few of the background people, he was a huge help, I dunno if I would of been able to finish before the deadline without him. Thanks, Man.

I also gotta give a big shout-out to Tom Fulp for everything (Newgrounds, increase of size limit, sponsorship), you're just...awesome. Thanks.

This flash takes place in a world after post-nuclear fallout has turned Earth into a desert planet. As a result, society is shaped accordingly and is thrown into an era resembling an Arabian setting.

Well, I'm sure you're all bored of reading all this, so go ahead and start the movie. And as always, ENJOY!

P.S. (8/21/07) I've been reading each review intensely. Each of your (fellow Newgrounders) reviews make me feel better about the past few days. I've been able to dust myself off quickly and realize that I've been able to entertain a lot of people. In a way, (I still miss that scholarship) I'm glad I lost in the VisionFest, because now I realize that I always have a place of retreat or a home here at Newgrounds and that it will never turn me away or let me down. (I know...sappy. But I had to say it) Thank you all for the awesome reviews, and Thank you Newgrounds!

P.P.S. (8/23/07) A lot of users have been asking me how long this took to make. I'm gonna post the answer on here because I'm sure a lot of you are wondering. I started actual production in the middle of March (2007) and was able to finish barely before the contest submission deadline on June 1st (2007). But that whole last month of May...whew...I was pulling off up to 38 hour shifts at a time just to get this done. I was in constant panic mode pretty much. I HOPE I never have to go through something like that again, I can't imagine what kinda unhealthy side effects could result from it. Cappuccino helped too. Weeeee, cappuccino! French Vanilla!

So then, time to take a stroll around the NG redesign on this very boring weekend. You never know what you're going to find when you just just start searching. Talk about a GEM in the rough. BIG TIME. Like many other flash that hide under the radar, I'm left saying "HOW THE HELL DID I MISS THIS !!!!". Even 5 years later, such great quality and story for then, I can imagine what you're doing now. This was fantastic.

[i see two storys in one]

this flash had a good mix whit colors, drawing and great music.i can see the Aladdin version in this flash but i also see beauty and the beast.by the main character being a giant lizard/dinosaur that finds comfort in one beautiful princess.-----{WARNING SPOILERS}-----
but like all happy beginnings they tend to go bad as the bandits take the live of the princess resulting the main character to transform in to the monster and killing oof the bandits. i found the flash back scene is a little empty i think u should have added different flash back bits to it. overall 9/10

extremely epic

The Music was great. The animation was pretty damn good.
One flaw to me is when the girl dies and in slow motion when the memories are shown of her to the guy. That could of been greatly improved, but it isn't annoying or anything, it still greatly contributes to the story and everything.

Well done.

Indescribable in talent!! One of the greatest!

The talent you have in your art, the imagination you inspire us with, I honestly cannot explain it. This is a 'perfect' flash movie, not one thing I would change about it, except that I want it to never end. Better than tarboy, and in terms of a story, it is the greatest thing I have ever seen on newgrounds and possibly in my life, the calibur of it would put most real movies to shame, you have done extremely well, be proud and keep making movies, bless us with your talent :D again and again!
