Wow, it has been a long time scince I last submited a flash movie here! :)
This work was a major project for me, and it was trully hard to produce, but I enjoyed every second of this aswell. I pushed the animation quality to the max ( at least the best I could) in comparison with my old works, and I guess the result is pretty good ( you tell me guys! :) ). This final episode was supposed to be released by december of the last year, but university and work delayed me as hell. Now that I found some free time I finally was able to finish it! :)
The story speaks by itself, I dont think it needs aditional explanation. I thought the hole movie 75% action & 25% feelings, wich was a verry important part, if not the whole thing would have been pure massacre :P

I also leave you the link to the song I used, wich is from (Xenogenocide), "wake p to Reality":

Awesome song! :)

So thats it,

Thanks for watching & hope you enjoy this movie as much as i enjoyed making it!

Edit: wow, daily 3rd place, frontpaged, and top 15 week ending!
Thats much more than I expected! :) Thank you all for your reviews and feedback I really appreciate them!.

I will try to clear out some things about this animation.
Facts: I made almost 300 frames for FBF movments and efects ( wind, run, jumps, sword fights), and many other action sequences between those.
You mays say it was short, and some scenes had some timing issues, and you will be correct. The facts are that I just put so much work on the animation itself, that I lost a little bit the "direction" of the movie in many aspects (timing, angles...etc.). Second when you are making the 300 frame you feel so exahusted and frustrated because its taking so much time....It took me whole 3 months to think, animate, and edit the hole thing, and by then I just wanted to publish and finish this work, wich I wasnt sure if it will succeed. So dont be so drastic with the final result of the movie,... Im not profesional...this would be my second "decent movie" after all....
Hope this clear out some of your questions.
Anyway, thank you all for watching again :)

Nice Music, didn't like the stylistic choices

The music was awesome, like seriously, but the design choices were a little, well, they left a lot to be desired. I mean i understand why you did it, but i still didn't enjoy it, sorry.

good looking but

Booooooring. Such great art and music for scenes that took too many seconds. It would be 10+ if you did the same thing, twice, and played it 2X speed. Heavy metal won't forgive slow animation. So why am I scoring 8? cause u're good at this, you just need to spend more time in your projects.

ehhhh

I understand how difficult and tedious frame by frame can get, but even so the action wasn't that interesting. There were a lot of shots where the frame would just tween for a bit and all I'm doing is waiting for a character to move. Especially in the beginning when the guy is just standing there. I'm assuming you were waiting for the song to reach a certain part, but still. I gave you a 7 because the style looked cool, but just wish it could have been used more. Good luck with future submissions!

I KNOW WHAT IS MISSING

I think I may know what IS missing... During the entire thing, I felt like he had no emotions. Yes in the beginning, but when he was done killing, then fall down to his knees in realization that all he did won't resurrect his brother or something? Because that is kinda what I was hoping for...

Not bad.

I have to agree with some of the others, that something is missing. I by no means underestimate the difficulty of frame by frame animation, but what you have here seems like its missing a few high quality shots. Almost all action is implied. This works as long as you make up for it with demonstrated action here and there (see any reasonably budgeted anime)

I also feel that several shots hold for far too long, such as the explosion. Long hold shots are very hard to get right (I don't think I've ever nailed it). Too short, and it feels strange, too long and its distracting and irritating.

In the future, I hope you spend a little more time on a few high content scenes, instead of several comic book style action shots with minimized movement. I applaud your music choice though, and your style is on point.
