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 I originally made it for my school's biannual VisionFest contest that was being held August 16-18th of this year.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!

Wonderful portrail

I really enjoyed watching. The fact that you didn't include vocal dialog made you pay attention to what was important. I liked the inclusion of different races. My only problem is that it seemed as though you borrowed a few certain appearences from star wars. Like the movie i take it? AMAZING JOB ON THE WALKING AND RUNNING ASPECTS OF THE FILM! Congratz and now you're one of my fav 5 artists.

Not bad in any sense of the word.

I'm only giving it a 9/10 because him having dinosaur powers came out of freaking nowhere, but it was still an excellent movie that I would enjoy watching again.

Good movie...slow PC

With such a high frame rate, this movie gave my pc a run for its money. Might I just note that Aladdin comes from Islamic theology. A "genie" is what they call a Jinn(demon). In the koran there is a story about prophet Solomon(who we know as King Solomon) where he has the ability to talk to "talking birds", ants, and takes his entire army(horses and all) on a one month ride on a huge "flying carpet" to go to a land and lift up the dress of a lady who is said to not have hairy legs...all this testified by a talking bird that has authority and rank such as a soldier or employee at a store. ISLAM IS FALSE. Jesus is Lord. InvestigateIslam

That was extremely amazing.

I really love flashes dedicated to songs; they always seem to turn out amazing. I like how you took from the Aladdin story line, pushing it into the future and gave it your own original tweaks to make it into a different story. You have a great imagination and wonderful animation skills. I can't wait to see what you bring out next.
