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.

Plot? Sweet!

Excellent work here. Art stunning, just like the rest of your Brackenwood pieces, music is exceptional, and audio is pristine. Only complaint is the randomness of the narrator - while I liked the narration as a means to enhance the story itself, the way the voice sounded and was utilized seemed out of place.

Kwing, your argument against narration is moot. Yes, the earlier films did lack narration and utilized action to advance the story, but silent storytelling is insufficient for the plot line that is being developed here. Oh, and short clips that lack tons of action, but rather set the premise for another film are called *teasers." They actually come in handy.

oh great

i love the animation to a extend that when i found out it's a to be continue story i'm broken hearted. the animation flawless, audio perfect and plot something that needs to be told so i give this videos perfect score. oh to haters realize this is a free video website and this kind of quality is a gift. you could pay for cable or for a movie to get this intense of a plot and animation or you could turn on your computer and log on newgrounds. these people aren't payed those fat checks they are doing it for the community (and the rating). so please people stop expecting 15 min -2 hr movie magic. thus i end this with 5/5 and 10/10
