very interesting story. Dr. Holmes reminds me of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. although i wish the environments were a little better drawn, this is a wonderful piece that you should definitely be proud of.
the opening sequence reminded me of "night of the hunter"... the first character wasn't very well animated, but the rest of the scenes are very rich. the little music box was very nice (very beautiful and detailed), and the entire movie was nicely paced.
didn't read your opening stuff
I'm not into reading :)
anyways, it looks ok, most of the times. but the way you animated the arm, bothered me a lot (of the fat guy). you might want to try something else. same with the mouth.
its ok i mean its great but a big rip of nightmare before cristmas :(
but its ok
The Town of Halloween
This is an interesting flash, but It looked suspiciously close to Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. The fat pudgy thing that took the girl looked like the mayor, and Dr. Holmes was Jack the skeleton.
