Daily 3rd Place! Wow! Thanks everyone for the votes and views and reviews! And the TROPHY! Whoo! *dances slightly*

We started this series back in late November and have concentrated almost all of our time into designing the world, characters, voice talents, picking the right music, adjusting volume levels, animation quality, and story development. So we hope this flash is as special to you, the viewers, as it is to us.

Mark of the Beast Snacks

Episode 1 : Dreams of Beyond

Two young boys have always wanted to leave the confines of their village, however it is surrounded by a magic barrier that they cannot pass... However, with the sighting of a strange talking beast and the calamity in the skies, they might just get their chance at adventure...

We would like to thank all the test viewers and people that helped us along the way in getting this series up off the ground and making it a reality. We'd like to thank our girlfriends for sleeping all alone because we were up tirelessly working and pushing toward perfection and utilizing our skills to their full potential. There is always room to grow, but I am unashamed to say that this is our first flash that I feel we poured everything we have into.

About the upcoming Episode 2 : We already have the full script and story line and even the basic outline for Episode 3 and are currently working on the animation and voice acting process for Episode 2. We'll have it launched as soon as we feel it has gone beyond what we have accomplished here for Episode 1.. As they say, practice makes perfect.

Enjoy the flash and let us know what you think.

We hope you enjoy,

Nathan Gibson and Steve Garnett

Uhhh

Story good, animation is good, music choice was good, but, uh, everything else needed a bit of work...


tacobuttfish responds:

Yeah, The sound will be much improved upon Episode 2 release! We have some new equipment. I promise we did the best we could with what we had, but now what we have is a little better! So see you right back here when Episode 2 is launched!

Ha :D

Animation/Graphics - The graphics were really good and the animation was very smooth. Great job all around. Like always, you have a great style of animation that you use.

Story/Content - Lol, the most random flash that I've seen in a long time. A lot of things didn't make any sense at all, but that's exactly how I like flash animations. That's when they are the funniest. I hope you continue on the series, because they are really funny. Character selection and design was done really good.

Sudoku really made me laugh. :D

Audio - The voices really added to the humor of the submission. Great voice acting all around man, but there were some voices that sounded like you needed to back off of the mic a little bit so they weren't so staticy. The music and sound effects were done well too.

Overall - A great movie that I'm going to add right to my favorites. Keep the PM's coming whenever you get a new submission in. :)

Hey thanks Corky! Glad you enjoyed it. And yes, the sound needs work. We finally have a digital recorder that we can equalize and tinker it to a more "television quality". We'll see you when we launch Episode 2!

Hey thanks man, a lot of the story will unfold and make more sense as time goes on. A lot of answers will be in Episode 2 but of course it will raise more questions than it answered and so on and so forth until finally a solid picture is there. I'm glad you enjoyed! And thanks for telling off the 14 year old too, couldn't have said it better ourselves!
