hello people!

here is a toon me and zip zipper have spent 8 months working on!

it's a silient horror film based on german expressionism!
honstly i am very very very happy with how it's came out the music the art it's just as we hoped it to be
it's made in a "paper craft" and it really works with the story (at least i think so) and zips music goes really well with the surreal style.

thats really it thanks just watch it and i hope you like it :D
thanks for watching!

holy crap thanks for the awards :D



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Lovely plot, music, and original animation.

I can say I honestly adored this. The artist did well evoking emotion in their watchers. The dark characters and gloomy music went well together in setting a creepy ambiance.
This animation may not be the most detailed thing out there, but the way it was used fit the mood so very well.
I hope to see more submissions from you!

thank you for the review, we tried to capture the feel of a classic silent horror and it seems (judging by peoples responses) we nail'd it


Rated 5 / 5 stars


The animation is good. The characters and a few objects appear to be hand drawn which is a nice effect that causes them to stand out from the background. The animation is smooth and what hasn't been drawn by hand has been animated fairly well in flash. The only problem is that they appear a bit pixelated. It's better to draw them large and scale them down accordingly than try to draw them small and scale them up, as quality is lost in the process. The happy, cartoon style in the scene where the two brains are together is a nice touch that shows the happiness within their minds which is then shattered by Dr. Cerebrum.

The audio is good. The mood of the music changed with the mood of each scene well. The music is good. You can tell the audio was designed for the animation.

The plot is great. It's sad, it's happy, it's sad, and then it's happy again when you don't expect it to be. This isn't a simple, easy to guess plot. There aren't many moments where you can tell what is going to happen next. There is enough suspense to keep the viewer interested and actively engaged in the story. The plot is certainly the best part of this flash.

thansk for the review, one of the problems from day 1 was the pixelated drawings i couldn't really sort it no matter what i did in fact if you look at the file size it's just bearly under 10mb it took alot of shaving down to get it to be the right size. i don't think i wil ldo this style again unless i can iron out these problems but i'm pleased with how it came out :) and thanks for talking about the music with out it the flash was bland zip really saved this one with his score
