    Brackenwood The world of Bitey and company is full of magic and wonder!

Author Comments

This is the story of the last of the dashkin. The people are all gone and in a world of innocent animals, the solitude, the sadness and bitterness have corrupted his view of life. What does the future hold for such a tragic creature? Will he wander the planet, forever alone until his death? Will he always be the wild King of Brackenwood?

It's a massive honour to be nominated for a 2nd Tank Award, thanks NG! Thank you for front page, all the great reviews and the incredible score for Daily Feature.

Thanks to Brackenwood fans and donors for all the support not only during the 4 weeks I spent making this, but also in the 2 years since I submitted Waterlollies.

Since then I've been working on the Brackenwood feature film outline with my good friend Ryan O'Loughlin. With no plans for a new web episode in the meantime it occurred to me that Brackenwood fans could be waiting years for the feature. I didn't want to abandon them altogether, so this new movie is my way of staying in touch with them and the NG audience.

This is the first Brackenwood short to break away from the "character introduction" style movies that had little or no character motivation and plot. This is a story, not only answering a lot of questions, but asking just as many new ones.

I used Flash CS3, the .fla is over 300MB (half of that is audio) and it took me 4 weeks.
Don't worry I won't be leaving it another 2 years. I plan on starting storyboards on the conclusion in jan-feb 2010.

Big fan for awhile

Really there is no room for improvement, graphics, sound, voice acting (that woman is great!) are setting a standard. Brackenwood seems to be evolving with a more intricate plot (though I liked the mystery of the first in the series, good name though, Dashkin). Hopefully the story will be able to live up to the rest of the quality. I'll be looking forward to see more about Bing Bong (though he's probably better left off without too much background lol), Auld Sage and that witch (who seems to have become younger!). One of a very few 10 outta 10 animations!

Blown Away

I think this is the best flash that has happened this year but I have seen lots of improvement in this and I am here to present you with this ACTUAL review. I was saddened that it was a lot shorter than the last one but here this goes...
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
ART 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
The art improved a lot and is the best artwork I have seen for a long time so I give you a very score for that so you get a 10/10 for that and I am hoping to see it the same in the conclusion or even better if it is even possible but still great job!
I think it is better than I can even do in my entire life!

STORY 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
The story was really good too and I have always wondered where Bitey came from and it ended with a huge cliffhanger to the conclusion which is another good thing about 2 -Part stories on animations or books. It felt like it was an Imaginary "National Geographic" or "Discovery Channel" show which was weird for a Newgrounds animation but it worked so well done.

EFFORT 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
I know you have spent a lot of time and effort onto it because you said that it took you 4 weeks to make! Also it is so amazing that you HAD to put a lot of effort into this and this score was kind of predictable and you should know that if you or any viewers actually wanted to look at this actual good review.

ANIMATION 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
I am pretty sure that you saw THIS score coming because the animation was very clear and very fun and entertaining to watch. Did you turn on the Auto Quality thing because I didn't see any quality controls but it lagged a little EVEN on my new computer I got.
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
AUDIO 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
The audio was very fitting and did its job at the best part. Plus the fact that you did the audio all by yourself! It was very detailed and made me want to watch the whole thing again and again!
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
OVERALL 10/10
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
This IS the best flash of the year and the whole thing really shows it plus it was the first submission on Newgrounds to get a 4.80 score! I really can't find anything to improve because your skills are so high that it is hard to find a single thing wrong! Maybe beef up the story a bit and make the conclusion give you second thought but it IS your idea but this is my review on your movie and I really enjoyed it.
