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.

Wow...........................

Now that was quite the dark story.
The only downside is that the truth was never revealed in the end.

love it.

it's a great plot, especially with the rumors and stuff. it makes you wonder. and i love your style of art and the animation was smooth. you were talking about how awful the sound was, but i think that it's fitting. it really nails that creepy feeling. 10/10, 5/5.

Perfection.

Absolutely original, the voice acting was impeccable, the quality of it reflected the mood very well, and the paper animation style was a very fitting compliment to the dark, yet mysterious story. The animation itself flowed very smoothly, and my favorite part was indeed the music which didn't draw away from the animation. I would say this is comparable, if not better than the work of Katy Towell. Fantastic, loved every minute of it.

Well done!

I liked it a lot. The story was brilliant. I don't think the audio was that bad for the story. I am a fan of subtitles, clear audio or not, but I could hear every word. Although in some animations this quality of sound would be awful, it worked for this piece, making it seem as a tale as old as time, recorded to remember the fate of young Dahlia.
