My first solo flash submission!??! Just kind of a short experiment.. do pardon the file size, I know it's a little on the short side. A five-day exercise based on a story a professor of mine once told me. I'll spare the details so you can decide what it means for yourself.

Done entirely in Flash CS3 and Photoshop CS2 (including the 3D looking stuff, which is actually only some 2D trickery)... rendered to video because the number of simultaneous filters and effects in some parts tend to make Flash players seriously unhappy :0
It actually took me longer to sort out the file formatting than it did to animate and draw... go figure?!

Using the "dim the lights" feature kind of helps too.

Plz do enjoy.

Well done!

You did a great job with the 3D effects of the crane, and the child's response and reaction to the crane was spot-on. It portrayed a sense of both wonder and curiosity.

There wasn't really much to the animation other than that, but it is still a good experiment. Good work!

The animation was very well done, and was appropriately dark. It's things like this that actually get you thinking.

This was a nice little experimental animation that was both depressing and endearing.

I looove it broseph, it was incredibly animated. Your hard work really paid off.
I totally watched it with the lights dimmed. It was all the more artfully fulfilling.
The achromatic colour scale made me a little sad for the baby that you voice acted for, but it worked immensely.

Love the animation.

The animation is very well done, and the atmosphere is very heavy, which makes it all the more better. The sound is added well. I think the baby is a little creepy though. Even though this is very short and makes hardly any sense whatsoever, these things compliment it to make it good.
