    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.

Don't get me wrong...

Your artistic work is great, and your animations are unquestionably phenomenal. There is clearly talent behind these works, and this one is no exception.

It's just... when I watch one of your videos, I know what to expect. It's impressive, and it's awe-inspiring... but as I watch it, I'm just not having fun. I come out of it with a feeling of respect for your work, but I don't feel better for watching it.

Anyway, that's my only problem. It's still a great flash, but I don't enjoy it, and I wanted to tell you why. Good work and all.

Fairly Good, but Narration Detracts from Animation

I like the introduction of Bitey's backstory to the Brackenwood lore. However, why the use of narration? I think you were better without it. Due to reliance on the narrator to tell the story rather than the animation, It felt more like a trailer than a true chapter of the Brackenwood story.

Don't get me wrong...

It's good animation, but except for the last 10 seconds, it would make just as much sense and feel WAY less forced and faux- and melo-dramatic without the emotionless and completely unconvincing voiceover. 3/5

I've given it a second chance,and,O.K.,but a little odd.
