The Composer is an animation following the life cycle of a young boy to adulthood, who uses the purity of music to heal wounds, and inspire the hearts of others.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this, it has taken a lot of work.
Thanks Tom Fulp for your fantastic support, and Francine Louise for your voice talent
i had high hopes for this entry. sadly, they were not met.
animation and sound were beautiful. the problem was the story.
you characters are one dementional and under developed. from the start, we were expected to feel empathy for a character we don't know. it tugged on the heart strings to much, it expects the viewer to cry. it seems overly sentimental.
overall; plenty of stlye, no substance. try developing the characters a bit more, and please don't make them cry every 5 seconds, it takes away from the impact.
Cliché drivel, at best.
While the animation was admittedly superb, and the visuals were quite intriguing, I found the storyline of this flash to be its weakest aspect.
Essentially, you're taking all the GOOD GUY OUTSIDER abuse-redemption-fame storylines ( that we can all admit to having seen at least 15 times, on Newgrounds alone ), And compiled them into a single messy plot, held together by the fantastic graphical work.
I might have given "Composer" a higher score, had it not been for the insane overuse of crying as a plot deivce to express sadness. Aren't there other ways, ( less obvious, perhaps? ) to express human emotion, without resorting to the ol' fallback of crying at every instance of the world's injustice.
I mean, come on. I think we can all agree that this flash temporarily resides at spot #1, solely due to the visuals.
Animation--> well done.
My criticism: Too much crying... seriously.
Not really my thing
Doesn't really appeal to me, those beautiful animation skills. Keep on doing what your doing, great job.
First of all, you'd think that for a composer who is popular and experienced, he would have a better understanding of counterpoint and tonality. Very rarely will you hear a professional classical composer who is reliant on power chords and a I-V-vi-IV progression, or whatever stock progression was used. Also, if someone is that popular, it's unlikely that they'll be completely forgotten, or play piano in lounges. The day that John Adams or Philip Glass starts playing in piano lounges and sells no more albums is a day that will never come. And if you don't make it as a full-time composer, you can take a cushy job as a composition professor and get your university to play your music! The animation was good, though, and choreographed well with the music.
