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.

I was thinking it might be a couple years again for the next one to come out, but then I read the description and was overjoyed! Can't wait to see what happens.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Well to be honest

I can tell in the small things that this is rougher around the edges in terms of animation. However, tis allowable in light that you have a plan to produce a feature length Brackenwood film (hopefully!) The lost art of anticipation is actually quite gratifying, all should try it. I would rather quietly fret to myself why i haven't seen a new Bitey toon in a long time and then find out years down the road that a truly epic feature length film was out. I would probably explode. Which would be really inexplicable to any company that was around when it happened. But of course, I really am the odd one out of the bunch. I'm sure a lot of people who review this will say things along the lines of, omg was waiting so long, finally!, moar moar moar! So, in conclusion, please make a feature length film, I had The Fantastic Adventures of Unico to grow up with in a sense of awe. I think a brackenwood flick would be perfect for my daughter :)
