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.

yes yes YES!!!

I have waited so long for another Brackenwood and I must say, the wait was worth while. Graphics are stunning, and I love how you are working on the story in depth. this doesnt deserve 10/ deserves 50,000,000 / 10

I see you're really becoming pro with Animate. The software as far as I can see exceeds adobe by far.

chluaid responds:

actually this movie was made with Flash CS3 - it fought me all the way to the end so I'd have loved nothing more than to use ToonBoom Animate. This movie was made specifically for NG though, so it had to be Flash. Glad you liked it and thanks for the 50 million :D

You tease.

Oh, why do you tease us so? I love this series. To date, i don't think i've seen more time and effort put into a project. Brackenwood transcends what we've come to think of flash to be; not a throw-away 2 minute clip (though there's nothing wrong with that) but an illustrious, deep, creative, and original story.

Before i saw the clip i was questioning the use of narration. But after seeing it, i think it's great. It was professional and fit in quite nicely. Maybe a little redundant, but otherwise great.

Thanks for the awesome stories,
