This is the sequel to my original film: Elevators. It follows the plot of a young boy who enters the world of Elevators to find his long lost savior.

I hope you all enjoy it and leave a review if there's anything you'd like me to work on for future films, or if there's anything I should know about the quality of this one.

Thank you.

Music Credit goes to Ennio Morricone and Metallica, and the sound cut between these two iterations of this song was first brought to my attention in "Fistful of Madness" so thanks to the author of that film for that fantastic idea!

Slightly moving and epic!

A really big improvement from your first film: Elevators. The animation was much better, although it was still a bit choppy and not so impressive as I would have hoped. With the fight scenes, I think there should have been more impact in the gunshots and hits - they didn't look convincing maybe also because the action was a bit slow, however the little flaws in your animation seem irrelevant because of the dominating music which immediately sucks you into the story... thumbs up for the music!

I would have liked to know though how the boy (now an adult) knew where the guy who saved him when he was a kid was being imprisioned, or how he even knew how to get to the Elevator World, there were a few blanks in the story-line...or are the answers to what I just said above is left to the speculation of your viewers?

Maybe they'll be answered in the sequel to Elevators 2! There is a sequel...right?

Quite original, well done.

Well this is certainly a nice review!!! :D

With the fight scenes being a bit slow: I wanted to display a sort of flow in the combat by the actions of the characters going slowly when a hit was made, ala 'God of War''s blocking system. However, I believe you may be right in saying that this made the hits look less thrilling or real. I'm going to have to agree with you there, so next time I do a fight scene I'll make sure to either make it flow much better or just drop the slow-motion effect all together.

I'm glad you liked how the music fit with the story. From the get-go it was very important to me to make sure the story and music were in tandem throughout the movie, and I believe I've at least mildly succeeded at that. :D

Looking back now, the plot hole you mention is actually quite a glaring one that, if time allows, I will probably make up for in another release. For now though, I can explain that my original thought was the boy would know where the man was because they were in that facility in the first Elevators. The problem is the facility looks a bit different, and the only place you see it in E1 is right as the elevator, that Man is riding in, is taken down in front of it using electrical cables. However, the implication was indeed that he would know from having been there himself with the man in the first Elevators.

I've been planning a sequel, but there are so many things that I want to do with it that I'm not sure it will ever be made. I suppose only time will tell, in this case.

Thank you for your words, I will think on what you've mentioned here in preparation for future films! :)

Really nice story

It's a nice story, with very good music that adds to the atmosphere.
Great work.

Thank you very much, I'm glad you liked the tale and music! :3

O.O

It was good but I couldn't quite understand it. At first I thought the boy with the gun was captured and imprisoned by those freaky robot dudes but apparently he was wasn't and came to rescue that gray-haired guy. Most probably I couldn't understand it cuz I didn't watch Elevators 1.


Chrome-Demon responds:

Oh I see what slipped you up. XD

The guy who was in prison was the gray-haired guy the whole time. If you look closely the first time you see the cell the character inside it has gray hair. I can see how you would have missed this because the camera moves around quite a lot and it does not show the hair prominently.

Regardless, now that you understand it I hope you'll watch it again and enjoy it just a bit more! :D

Good.

I think this was great, the music, the graphics, the story was allright,
but if I was to point out something I didn't enjoy quite as much, it would probably be the art. Not that there's anything wrong with it or anything, it just wasn't like amazing.
But overall I think this was great. :)


Chrome-Demon responds:

This seems to be an issue that I should take a look at. Next time I make a movie I'll make sure to improve the art if I can,I might just be a bad artist. :P

Anyway thanks for watching!

Has potential

Needs better art, you may want to consider getting a graphics tablet so that you can draw straight into flash, it would greatly improve your look. Nice animation, however.

Chrome-Demon responds:

Oh I see what you mean. Since animating is a small hobby of mine I'm not sure I want to spend money on a tablet right now... but I do agree that one would certainly make my films more interesting and decent graphically. Thank you for enjoying the animation though. :D
