Xleek goes berserk. Apes get smart. Brian almost dies. Meredith ruins everyone's good time. SUCH SCIENCE!!!

Sorry this one got out about 6 months late. Minecraft happened. However, if I did submit this six months ago, I wouldn't have had the time to put so much thought and love into it!

CREATIONISTS SHOULD NOT WATCH THIS FLASH!!! If you watch this flash and get upset, it's your own fault because I told you not to watch it.

Lovingly crafted in about 4 weeks.

Also in order to fully understand this, you're going to have to watch the two previous movies if you haven't already (unless you can understand this movie, in which case you're some kind of wizard)

wow, front page and daily 1st? Thanks Tom, YOU ARE THE GREETEST

EVo FTW! Great job, as always Evan! Although, as an Archaeology student, I'd like to point out several things in your movie, which collide with what I learned about Anthropogenesis:

1. Homo Erectus' weren't all that monkey-like, and as their name says, they were fully bipedal and upright. The evolving guy looked more like early Australopithecus, or at best, Homo Habilis with a serious case of arthretism.
2. The Erectus hominids already knew how to use fire. They also were the first pre-human forms to leave Africa, but I guess that the evolving guy was representing H. Erectus Ergaster sub-species, which stayed in Africa.
3. the tent-like huts were invented by later form of Hominids, the Neanderthalians, which looked much different than the evolving guy at that moment.
4. Wheat farming have been developped in Neolithic age after Pleistocen period, and by fully evolved Homo Sapiens.

BUT afterall that was really cool movie, I loved when Xleek freaked out.... Can't wait for new episode.

Thank you!

I do know all of these things (i am a bit of an archeology buff myself) but i took a few liberties with the history for the sake of interest. In fact, one of the main themes of this series is that one must challenge what we think we know as of right now, because the reality and history of the universe is probably so much grander and more complex than we could ever hope to comprehend as we are...

I know the 'Homo erectus' primates more closely resemble Austrelopithicus africanus, but that was so i could do the evolution sequence more easily. If I started out with a short ape-faced african human and evolved him to a tall human-faced african human, the intermediate steps would have been too difficult to tell apart.

The tent-like structures they built were actually grown trees with the leaves propped up, signifying the discovery of craftable shelter. I know fire and stone tools were already discovered but i just felt like i had to include it because the machine 'gave' them their intelligence. I was also going to include an animal husbandry bit, where there's a pen full of boars or something, but there wasn't enough room for that.

Great job. Overall entertaining and enjoyable to watch. My one suggestion would be to turn down the effects of Xleek's voice a bit. He's a bit difficult to understand with everything stacked on to make him sound alien-y.

Like I said in my previous reviews, I may not agree with your views on the origin of life (creationist), I still love this series. Best of all, your not being a dick against the opposing viewpoint. I like how this series has come along so far, I really like the characters, especially Meredith, and the design of the alien... er... future human. I also liked how you worked in the "evolution sequence" from your older animation. The only thing I really disliked about this one was the "get on with it!" part. Monty Python did it far better and it kind of felt out of place.
