Hi Newgrounds, I've missed you, even though the most of you probably don't know me anymore, perhaps, never have known me.

These past few years, I've been working on animations, although not in Flash format. I entered an art college, and I'm currently in my second year. There, I animate on plain paper with lightboxes and stuff.

Story:

The background of the movie is that the theme park got closed for some reason. An accident happened (the Wiggly Tower broke) and people died. As a closure, the panda (he was a mascotte of the park, and treats the park as his home), wanted to pay a hommage to the deceased. He puts effort into winning the price, treat it like a human and try to spend some quality time with it. In the end, when the day is over, he puts the doll into those chalk lines, one doll for every person who died.

It's really not clear in this movie, but for some reason, I wanted it to be a bit mysterious, as it is something that only I need to understand, and others don't necessarily have to.

Anyway, enough with the reading, go watch the freaking movie.

PS.: I'm too lazy to translate the few sentences that appeared in my movie, if you wonder what "Weifeltoren" means, it means something like "a wiggly tower" in Dutch, a wordplay on the Eiffel Tower.

it came in as odd, which i like but as i continued to watch i felt love, reading other comics the plot seemed clear, and i absolutely adored it.

Well that was darned good. I actually liked it, even though I had no idea what was going on, and I think that everyone could pick what they wanted it to mean. I also really enjoyed the art styling. The watercolor-ish stuff was cool and added to the... mood, I guess. Anyway, good work, definitely deserving of 5 stars.

It may sound like an excuse, but apart from the message "a panda in an abandoned park", and "solitude", I don't need anyone to understand more.

I'm happy you liked it, it's reviews like this that keeps me going.

Well the art and animation was all great, but I didnt really understand the plot... altho I felt the emotion and the expressions so thats always good. I think the coloring between black and white and coloring was very strong, and the tools you used to create the art very fitting. Anyways man it looks like you have a strong sense of what your doing, and you just have to refine your talents to reach a broder audience, Im not saying I didn't like this because I assure you I did - Im just sayin' to make it more "generally entertaining" and I think more people will dig it. This is kind of an alternative expressive movie, which is great - but dont catter to a large audience.

Thanks for your review. Though I don't necessarily want people to understand it, I guess it won't hurt if people do. For me, it's just a background story, people don't need to understand it.
