Sorry it looks a bit rough but it was done with a number of adobe suit programs and intended to be a stand alone short film. As such, though it was animated and created in flash, it's been a process converting and cutting it back down to a flash format.

Amazing pure and simple

That animation would be high quality by a studios standards. That fact that u did this by yourself is simply amazing. The story while short had emotion and the atmosphere was set very well by the music and use of colors. Anyone who doesn't agree with me is a moron who most likely is just trolling. I agree that the credits could not be seen and it was a tad pixeled but u explained this so no stars deducted. Dont be discouraged by anyone here. newgrounds wouldnt know quality if punched it in the balls. good work! 5/5 10/10

Thanks man! by far the nicest comment probably ever. I will probably be living on this praise for a while so that I can get through some other projects.

Stunning.

Fluid animation with endearing character designs and a strong atmosphere throughout. A tad on the short side, but you illustrated your intention within that time frame, so I don't see the length as a bad thing.

Fantastic flash! Almost like something you'd see from Disney.

I'm glad you rate the film so highly. I feel it's a bit short too. I think it just needed more time to set up the characters and the mood, seems like it just goes from scene to scene indiscriminately. Thanks for the nice comment.

Very impressive.

I must congratulate you for your efforts, pal. This submission has it all: a plot, nice art and good music to match everything else. It really seems that you invested quite a lot of love into this.

Great job!


Kaloian responds:

I'm pretty pleased with it, more so now that I know how many other people think it's good. And the music compositions By Mike and Sahlia were great, terrific artists.

did you really animated this?

Because it's awesome, the draw, the trama, even the fact that the animation it's a complete 8mm rail style.

I hope to see more of your work.

Kaloian responds:

Thanks, and yes I did do all the work on it (besides the animation and the sound effects are from a library, obviously). There are definitely spots in the animation where it could have been smoother or livelier as the character seems to do repetitive flat things but it is what it is now.

okay

so this looks like it could have been impressive had you prioritized the quality of the final product more
couldn't read any of the credits an couldn't see half of what was going on.
clean it up and resubmit it and it might even get frontpaged.
Quality is important, never forget that.


Kaloian responds:

I would like to but the backgrounds are crazy big .pngs and there are effects from after effects and the like. I had to pull this out of flash at about the rough stage because I couldn't touch any part of it without killing something in the project. There is a higher quality version and you can find the link in the description.

And yes, there was a rush to get it done and I was really trying for high quality but as a result the story acting and animation didn't get the time or attention they deserved.
