Hello Newgrounds

This film was originally created for a contest promoting biodiversity through film
I ran over the deadline and kept working on it for fun and to finish it

It's about the Amazon Rainforest

Currently, the Brazilian Government is planning to build a giant hydro electric dam on the xingu river, one of the main tributaries of the Amazon River
This dam is a terrible idea for a multitude of reasons

to read more about them go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w iki/Xingu_River

and please Sign this petition to the president to stop the construction of the dam

i enjoyed that

there has become a scarcity of originality in the portal, and the avant-garde is too far out there. i wish you would make a longer one soon.

Unique

I have to admit I'm very fond of your style. It has some weaknesses like for example that there is always only one element moving, some of the frames are not particularly beautiful and the chase scene seemed too slow which kinda killed the thrill. But overall... the strange mix of realism and sketchiness got me. You should definitely work on it and get even better. I bet you can do some breathtaking stuff after some more practice.

My main critique would be that you failed to expess a point. I mean sure... the eco-message got across but the "story" was incomprehensible for me. You should focus on what the key message is and try to bring it across with more consistent scenes.

All in all... I salute you. A very good job with a few rather easily amendable mistakes. I look forward to seeing more of your stuff.

Eco-power!

Love the sketchy-ness factor, the animals and stuff when really nicely done, I do have a couple of problems though.
1. I do agree with MUDr Sauron, the story is really odd and not too clear. I did like the chase scene (except it was slow) and the fact that the animal probably only got caught because of the dam.
2. Though the sketchy-ness is cool with moving characters, it doesn't do well as a background. Your water looks really 2D.
3. No replay button.
4. The end felt kind of rushed, like you wanted to add on something but didn't have time.
Anyway, nice work, you do need to work a bit on the awareness part, most people don't read descriptions so put the links and info in the flash itself. Not really an enviromental person, but the information is accepted regardless. Hope to see more later. Kudos.
