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.

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.

Good but

Very nice video
You got every interesting new style of drawing here one NG. Story was also good and animation got me in position where i was staring at the screen without mouvement or sound in the end.
But as it is said below me, you could improve your microphone. Voice and narration is great and nicely fits into situation but its hard to understand what exactly are you saying. So pls think about getting better microphone or if you dont want waste money at least add subtitles.
