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.

Amazing

An amazing piece of work as always. I really liked this episode of the brackenwood series. I know I stated in my waterlollies review that I would've loved to see some more character development and such and I think you went the right way with this one. You also introduced some interesting new characters that are gonna play a big role in the series I guess. I'm especially interested in the meaning of bitey's dream, but that magician girl at the end seemed very mysterious as well. I wonder how she is gonna solve bitey's problem.

For the rest I think the narrating was well done. She had a pleasant voice and reminded me a bit of the LOTR narrator of the first movie.

Overall 10 out of 10, 5 out of 5. Went straight to my favorites. I can't wait to see the next episode, keep up the awesome work.

Oh by the way, I don't why but for whatever reason I was unable to watch this flash in Opera 10. I got a huge watermark all across the screen stating that I should watch this on bitey.com. It worked fine when I tried Firefox though. You might wanna take a look at that, before you get a ton of complaints from people who aren't able to view this.

Excellent

Very pleasing, but I'd suggest (to the viewers) watching it more than once to get the full story.

I didn't catch that his parents and humans were likely killed while defending the planet from some dark terror and he was shoved into that protective plant so he'd survive on my 1st watch.

You've set bitey's personality up well for an engaging story about his learning and growth out of selfishness and spite into someone caring, responsible, and brave.

I look forward to the rest.
