This is my entry for the final round of NATA 2012! It's been fun!

The theme was "the final fork in the road." For those having trouble seeing how that fits with this movie, remember that the fork in the road is for Death and not Calvin.

First, some things that went wrong. Because it's all frame-by-frame, some of it is shaky. Oops. The way I coloured it is weird and the backgrounds aren't too detailed. The sounds mixing isn't too great, but that's partially because I got my friends to record their lines at their own houses, so the quality differed. Now, things that I thought went well. On the whole, I think the frame-by-frame came out nicely and I'm proud of it. But ore importantly, I branched out in terms of story. This breaks the same formula I've been using since the novice round, and I didn't have to panic and change things last minute like I did last time. It actually sort of worked, so that's nice.

I doubt I'm going to win NATA because I'm against Emrox, but NATA was definitely a great experience. Just compare my open round entry ("Splice of Life") to this. I definitely got something out of this all. Expect me back again next year!

This was funny to sad...I actually enjoyed this. however, I didn't like the way the voices were. I think it could have been recorded better...sorry

A full range of emotion through flash animations... If I could give more stars I would. Continue the excellent work!

Calvin's face did look pretty weird, and like you said, the voices weren't the greatest, but you could actually win this.

This was really great man! I liked the philosophical take you took on the concept. It was definitely a fascinating take on the topic.

Points for going for FBF. It may not have been the cleanest way to animate, but it made your characters lively and interesting to watch.

The audio was kinda crappy, and some of the coloring looked a little dull - but this is just nitpicking.

You should be proud man! Good luck!
