Faust - Episode 1

The intro was originally just going to be scrolling text, but it snowballed into the entire episode. So what I had planned for Ep 1 is really going to be ep 2.

Music is "Schwarze Sonne" (Black Sun) by german techno group E Nomine.

This movie is dedicated to Goethe, the greatest writer to ever live. Christopher Marlowe can go screw himself.

This was a lot of fun! I really do like how good the animation is. I guess it kind of reminds me of "Madness Combat". It's something about the sunglasses. I'm kind of glad there were no voices. It would have messed with the music.

The music just perfectly set everything up. It goes well for the first episode. I just love how these guys interact. While it didn't have much action, it didn't need it. The animation was just amazing.

Alright!!! This was awesome! I don't see solid 5's every day, but there's no question about this one getting 5 well-earned stars. Keep it up buddy! :D



Good job

Very good job. The introduction to the story is very well done. The animation itself was excellent as well. The only thing that bothered me, which is weird, it seems insignificant, but since the very first moment the buildings appeared, every building has its own unique shading, so each building must have its own light source. Only two buildings have light from the same angle hitting them. Small detail, but really through off what would have been a great landscaping shot.

The thing

The thing that strikes me the most about this flash is that it doesn't need much voice acting. I dunno how to put it. . . Usually when I see a flash where there is little to no voice acting and instead have text I find them mediocre at best. . . But for some reason this is just amazing without needing any voice acting at all. (Well there was the gibberish but I don't count that) Indeed a good job.
