In the distant future, humanity has survived three world wars, fallout, and plague. But rebuilt each time, promising to never again make the same mistakes, to be more prepared. We were like parasites to our planet, we continued to feed off of it until it was near death. In a last ditch effort to save our home, we had to leave it, and move onto a new 'host' until the time came where we could return. We did, we returned promising to heal our planets we did. Then, we continued to spread, to the the next planet. We continued to move until one day changed the course of human colonization...

This will not be a movie unfortunatly..Yet at least, im working on the redshirts right now, but i've gotten so much feedback to make a movie from this. so its debatable. i shall let the people decide.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Awesome, however...

More like 2017 March third! Hope it's sooner though. Check out Dr. Steven Greer on youtube! This guy is exposing everything! His Uncle designed the lunar module and yadda, yadda. Information easily attained. Like the animation and the sound. Follow up!

we will, but Earth might not. I think we'd have to leave Earth behind at some point

if money was actually pumped into this;

i could see this being one of the coolest trailers i've ever seen for one of the most kickass amazing movies ever.

try to do something with this. like... a real movie. i expect to be watching it in 5 years.

Goeliath responds:

i share your enthusiasm. I would love to see this into a movie. Who knows, i might make a 20 minute animated movie about this, maybe even longer, but as i have the attention span of a garden hose i doubt that.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Love'd it.

But the start button screen sould be worked on and the time they made countacted that seem alitte high you would think idk like 2562 or some thing but its seem pretty sweet cant wait.

Goeliath responds:

well to be fair, in the description, ww3 happened, then humanity had to survive a nuclear fallout, plus another plague. we rebuilt after all of that so that would be up until around 2150 or so. Then to top it off, its not like we can actually use hyperspace drives, since they cause molecules to expand, the ships would fall apart in space, so humanity would have to use the slow style of travel where it would take SEVERAL years to reach a planet. Then the process of colonization on planets would take a while. this would all be up until youre said 2562, where i believe around that time we will have cracked the code for hyperspace drives, and that would still be a while before we make first contact. We only have a limited amount of ships and each needs to be refit with a hyperspace drive, ect. you see where im going? it would take a while to develop theses sciences and technologies with the limited resources and known data.

but the start button, i know that, im not good with making those start buttons, i've looked up on how to make one, and meh, im not so good at that. But i've been [practicing

It was Ok

I would like to see a longer flash, as this was more like an intro.
Hostorical context is good, adds to the futuristic feel.
Honestly, you should make it a full length flash, maybe in 5 minute episodes or something.

Goeliath responds:

I've had a lot of people wanting me to make a 20 minute movie. Im alrdy working on a series called the redshirts, and i've never beaten the 5 minute streak. and even when animating, anything up to 5 minutes is hell for me as i have the attention span of a garden hose. However, i am infact going to make s timeling flash of some sort in the future, this was just a quick little thingy portraying my idea.
