UPDATE: Holy crap, I really didn't think I'd get front page. Many thanks to the person responsible!

Walter Joyce is perfect. This is his story. I'd appreciate it if you listened to the tale to the end. If you're looking for quick action or laughs, please watch a different movie.

I made this over the weekend for my core English class (from script to credits, seriously). Definitely the most work I've done in 2 days on a Flash movie! It's over 4 minutes long, actually.

The microphone wasn't perfect, and the visuals are clearly rushed, but I thought maybe people would appreciate it for the writing, which is completely original. I hope you like it.

NOTE: I made this in *two days* for a school project. As you could expect, it's definitely *not* an example of my Flash abilities. However, I thought the story in the movie was interesting enough to warrant an upload.

P.S. I'm gonna respond to all reviews, so if you want to ask something, go ahead. :]

Stellar audio choices and work!

A friend showed this to me on a whim one day, and when I heard the audio of the rain falling against the Moonlight Sonata I was sold. Like previous reviews have said, the vocal audio of "The Benefactor" was a bit sketchy, but the narration was very crisp. You've got a great story reading voice.

The ambient noise was my favorite though. The way the color and it's intensity would change with the frequency and intensity of the noise was a great way to tie the two together and was executed very well.

Can't wait to see a se/prequel!


Masquatto responds:

I'm glad you liked the audio. :D Good thing that the built-in laptop mic didn't bother you. ;]

I was actually worried that people would find the static boring or uncreative. I'm happy you enjoyed it. :}

Let's hope I actually start animating it! XD

I find it stunning , really

I prefer this to your 'Clock Crew' work - yes the style is simplistic (and as you say quite possibly rushed) but it fits the nature of the story, in my view. The dark overtones mix with the cartoon style very well.

I'd love to see more work along these lines, I take it that the short story is your own creation? I like the concept behind it, and applaud your imagination!


Masquatto responds:

Yeah, none of my CC work is really up to par with my own standards either.
Thanks.

Yes, I wrote it during the weekend I made it. When my schedule clears up, I'm thinking about making a prequel to the story. Thank you. :]
