*********WARNING CONTAINS STICKS********** If stick animations are not what you enjoy, please leave or at least vote fairly, thank you.

After working on and off for about a year, I finally managed to finish this. By far the best work Ive ever done, but because of the long time frame to finish, there is a definite quality difference throughout which basically outlines my animation style over the year.

Ive put alot of effort into this, Please enjoy.

EDIT: NICE Daily 3rd, thanks everyone.

Thank you for all the kind reviews, and all questions will be answered in (possibly) a sequel.

EDIT 2: HOLY CRAP WEEKLY 5th?! Wow this is seriously an honor, thank you all for enjoying :D.

A winner is you

very nicely done, good sir (possibly madam, don't mean to offend)

to be honest, i haven't seen any stick figure flashes focused on free running, aside from this one, and it was truly epic. keep up the good work. the ending was well played, in my opinion, too. sequel maybe?

Awesome.

Your sense of motion is so good. Everything was fluid and all movements were almost lifelike. It was nice to see a stick movie follow laws of physics and because it did it made the chases more intense. Detail does not really matter as that was obviously not what you were going for. The music choice was good as it was nice background music to set the atmosphere and did not become center stage. Story was fine, not that there was much but it wasn't meant to be like that.

9/10

good flash

like what most people have said its a good flash could have put more detale in it blah blah blah.... (parkour and free running mean the same thing stop fighting about it) i dont care about any of that it was sappost to be a stick film and while there are a lot of stick films most suck this one is one of the rare good stick films, my only fult is the story i under stand the construction workers wanting him off the property for safty resones but after that there was no resone for proplr to chase him, and freerunning (parkour) is not illigal there is no resone for him to get arrested, now you said that all answers will be in the sequile so im assuming he is wanted for something more then just trusspassing.

Decent

I generally don't mind stick animations, but they often have an inherent lack of detail. For instance, when during the first-person scene when he was looking down at his legs, all you saw was a red cross. Like, really? You tried to add some detail by adding fingers to their hands, but let's be honest, it would have been better had it not been stick animated.
That being said, the it wasn't a bad movie. The backgrounds were OK, but they too lacked a lot of detail.
I liked the action in the film a lot, where he jumps around, and where he avoids the guards and such. That was well done and fairly fluid.
The only are that really needed improvement was the sound. The text areas for speech suited fine, and I see that you wanted to put emphasis on the music, but the end part where the action slowed down when the policeman arrested him really needed voice to make it interesting.
Overall, it was a pretty good animation, and it deserves some credit despite needing more detail in it.

And for those complaining about the title (Atomlad), Parkour is the act of moving to one place to another as fast and efficiently as possible, where Freerunning is the act of moving through the environment without being constricted by physical boundaries. This would be more Freerunning than Parkour.
