CHILDREN, created by Mohammad Ahmed Fikree. The film won Special Jury Prize at Dubai International Film Festival 2011.
The drama of a mother and her children planning a desperate escape from a scary, hungry beast that preys on them is captured in this short animation film.

This is truly a work of art, nothing less!

The story was basic, but very well executed: the lighting, the music, the silent characters, all of this really drags the viewer into the story, so that one will almost live it through.
Lighting, art style, and music all blended in some sort of alchemy, which yielded very pleasing results, well done.

However, I feel that I must point out that the animation of the characters felt a little choppy, and it could use some improvement. It is far from terrible however, as some pointed out - in fact it's pretty decent, albeit average.

Overall, movies like these are a rare find on Newgrounds, and deserve attention. I admire your amazing talent, as not many could create such scenery and story like you.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Your animation is excellent! Even after the end of this small, but very good movie, I still been crying! Though, I do not like sad endings and sad music (from sad music I'm starting to cry) you have earned a rating of 5 and add to favorites.
P.S. I'm from Russia

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Everything was great. Very cinematic, good story, etc. Half a star off because the movement was horrible.
