This is a dark thriller I've been working on for quite some time. It took me a long time to make so please watch it to the end.

It's a good story, but the the graphics SUCKS. You should find some good tutorials, practice for a year or two and THEN make more movies/videos/whatever.

Great story lots of style so-so graphics...

A good story and a lot of style carry this Flash and make it really worth watching. It's a very creepy story that's told with a flair, I especially like the dream sequences and their transition into reality.

The downside i'd give is the graphics aren't the best, and seem a bit "flat" at times. IMHO though, you can get away with so-so graphics if the story's good. Still, some improve in that area could only help.

Keep up the great work, look forward to you improving as you continue with more incredible stories.

You're so close

Watching your movie aggravates me ;)

Look dude, I've said it before and I'll say it again. You have some really good movie ideas. Good sense of direction, good music choice, etc. But please, please please please


Your graphics have barely improven since your first comet magnum episodes. Honestly, you would get 4.0+ for your movies if you could just spend more time on the drawings. Study Perspective- Drawing from one or two source points (when doing architecture) will make all the edges line up and look correct. Many times your buildings have lines that slant four different directions. Cut back on the gradients, they usually don't look good unless put on a flat surface. And lastly, keep an eye on your body proportions. Sometimes they're fine but the next instant they can look insanely out of whack

I would expect these kind of habits from a new animator, but you've been around for a couple years now. Step it up ;)

What to say...what to say...

I think it's pretty safe to say, you're the closest thing NG has to "cult" flash artist...You're work is brilliant, slightly fucked up, and overall, extremely unappreciated.

I enjoyed this particular submission, and found it rather though provoking...but unfortunatly, I really didn't feel wowed this time around...I don't really know what it was, but this really felt like just an exercise in style for you...I dunno, I guess I just expected more. Doesn't really matter, though, I'm still rating it a 5.

Any word on a new Jackpot Jim coming our way? I've been checking every week for the past couple of months, and I'm sort of disapointed..

Well, anyway, congrats on another fine submission, and I hope to see more soon.


awesome movie, i especially liked the music you took from the audio portal. it was a highly entertaining movie and i think it deserved another award, although the daily 5th was good for this movie.
