UPDATE: Uuuuh, front page?? Thanks a ton. :] And thanks for all the votes and reviews and advice. I've updated the movie with subtitles to make up for over processed audio garble.

My first newgrounds entry ever, as well as my first animation in years. It was made in part to get myself playing around with Flash again. It was also so I could get some sort of little intro for this story I've been working on, but have no intentions of animating(if it were, the style would be way different. Frame by frame awesomness that I'm not capable of now). Therefore this animations raises faaaar more questions than it answers. I worry that it won't stand too well on it's own because of that, but hey, twas a good exercise and stuff.

My apologies for the Frankenstein-esque mess that is the narration. I compiled all the clips in the most unorganized way ever, so in the end it turned into a hodgepodge of different volumes, voices, effects, and noise that was hard to fix after the fact. Blargle. Welp, lesson learned for next time.

So yep, I'm no animator(nor a voice actor, apparently), but it was fun to do. So will probably try some more stuff in the future...with less vibration inducing textures...and better audio.

Excellent

Your tone and pace were excellent, i can see why this was front-paged. Though you stated that the art style was not what you intend for a final product, i think it really works quite well. Surprisingly, the sound quality (or lack thereof) actually added to the ambiance, making me feel like i was watching an old black and white movie.

Kudos to you, and i really hope this won't be your last piece of work. Looking forward to this series!

Intriguing...

Although I didn't finish watching the flash, for reasons better left unspoken, I can tell that a lot of effort was put into creating this flash. The plot seems weighted and original, and the music fit closely with the events at hand. However, if I MUST be critical about your work, I was dissatisfied by the level of quality of the animation you showed. The flashes of hell visions and artwork were clean and detailed, but the most actual animation I saw was the crowd or groups of people quivering in place. Nevertheless, I am pleased with your work and await with baited breath for the chance to finish this and view your work in the future. Keep up the good work!

I definately am impressed

I like seeing this kind of dark, gothic style one in a while. It does intrigue me to see something so twisted but yet so appreciative.

I did like the cutout animation, it's as if your telling a story using puppets and whatnot. The black and white color fit perfectly aswell. I also like how the screen flashes to something sinister and creepy.

I am turned off by the narration itself though. I guess the different pitches and tones in the recording made it hard to watch. You have the right voice and everything, but it just needs better quality.

But overall, I did like watching this. Nice work.

Really good animation but fix the sound

The animation and the story were great but the sound put me off at times although it contribute to the creepy vibe of the video. Try to make it clearer next time but other than that it was excellent.
