Well first of all, yup, it's a two parter sadly.
When I tried to export in Flash it kept saying Flash was out of memory, so I was stuck with this as the solution.

Continuing from the prologue episode (linked in the loading screen) Julian Specter, son of the powerful Specters who own a large slave company is hunted down by the citizens of Flintlock and must retreat to the lair of his worst fear... POOR CHILDREN!

This was done for my A2 art coursework at college, and the sketchbook is also linked in the loading screen!

Running time: 4:00

After starting this animation, I wasn't too happy with it -_- I feel I've over developed the confusing story and focused more on that than the animation, and because of this, I don't think I'll be continuing with this series. I'm trying to be known as an animator, not a writer, so I want to focus on that side of it more, sorry guys.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Somewhat 'unanimated'

It's a good story, but something about the way they transition, the voice acting breaking off and how robotic they become when they don't speak makes is seem ungeniune. This can be treated, but not cured, by getting better mics with less background noise so we can't hear them stop their talking sequences, other than that you need to animate more fluently, your animation style is a bit jerky, if you spent more time with them being static and let the audience sink into the scene it will feel less like its actually an animation and more like a story. I can't exactly tell what the 'problem' is just what seemed like was missing to me.

Yeah this is what I was talking about in the description when I said I wasn't happy with this one, I focused on the story too much, which I also think I've overdeveloped for a short Flash, and backed myself into a corner.
In my next project I just want to focus more on animation and less on story


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good Shit!

Very entertaining I like how these characters just morph and pull finger puppets out thier asses.

Kreid responds:

Thanks :)
I'm a bit uncertain about the story though haha, there's quite a few things in this that I'd now have to keep in mind when writing more D:
As for the animation, I'm glad people liked it :)
