......FLASH DELETED.......
This is my media project for school, hope you enjoy it. Took quite some time and is the first flash i've done thats more than a few frames :/

Thanks all for the kind reviews, yes the start shows the big plans i had but sadly was rushed for time in the end, i did probaly half of it in a sleepless 37
hours just to meet the deadline.

Holy cow !!

That was awesome ! A nice lengthy bit of flash, Unique ideas, great music + sounds, all in synch, (err, Violence was a 1 because he got his hand swatted. Aheh ..) And of course, it was funny to see how you expressed some of his emotions ...

Also, I know it might've been hard, but loot might not have been the best word to describe what you were trying to. If it's the best you've got, its fine with me. It just sounded kinda strange ...

Good luck in the future !!

Very nice!

you have a very wonderful skill at drawing Nature and people. i found it to be a beautiful work of art. Good choice of music and avid sound effects. Great Job!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice one

I like the idea,... It is simple, but I really like it. The music fits perfect to the story :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Definatly a great start

You may have over used that poem a little too much and not focused on the story.

It was a neat idea, but still the plot seemed sort of lacking. He was happy to find the flute again, but it just didn't seem like that big of a loss when it dissapeared, nor did the buying of the flute seem to warrant the money or the protection of the flute.

Over all, very well done. More detail in your drawing, finer detail I mean. Experiment with some lighting techniques. I liked the sun rise... you almost had me squinting, but you gave up on scenery after that first scene. If you want to put scenery in one scene, a lack of it in others has to be warranted. Perhaps you were rushed for time.

Over all great, and you have much potetial.
I want you to know that I really liked this movie, and any criticism that I have given is here because I'd like to see you improve... You may find your way into my favorites if you keep this up...

Beautiful Work!

As a flute player myself I'd be crushed if my flute just vanished one day. As for you animation it was really neat, I just wish that after the intro scenes there would have been more effort put into the background. Because you said it was for school I'll give you the benifit of the doubt and assume you were pressed for time. Damn due dates. The music was also phenomenal and was very fitting for your movie. FYI, this flash made it's way into my favorites, good job and keep it up!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

U would have gave you a hgiher score you started out so well did you just get lazy or something because it just got worse and worse quality.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Final Score

Submission: Movie (No Violence, Interactivity, or Humor)





Final Overall:



Okay, so where to begin? Might as well start with Graphics. The beginning was very well done with the artwork. Afterwards, I could see consistent laziness. Your Style was good as well. You don't see movies like this everyday. Finally, the Sound was nice and peaceful. The story worked out, but I would like a vast improvement. Can't wait to see more of your work!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Dude that is soo awesome Good Job. I clap for you. The sound espesically was sooo clear and good. Good job once again. I hope to see more stuff from you.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

three cheers

if u could see i am giving you a standing ovation finally someone comes out with a good flash havent seen one in three day. awesome job.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not bad

i didnt enjoy it and i dint hate it was alright


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nicely done, the music is great.

Not a bad movie, I especially enjoyed the musical selections. Though the concept seems a little cliche, the whole "magical item" kind of thing, but nicely done none-the-less.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


This was pretty awesome. The beginning was what caught my eye. I'll admit, if you started out with the graphics you had during the middle and end, I probably would have closed this. You should have kept the same style of detail and drawings you did at the beginning. I guess you got lazy or had a due date. Oh well, none the less, it's sweet. Keep it up and make more fantasy style flashes. I love them.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Welll very good...

But...why did the animation change so drasticaly? it went beautiful to was still good but it would have been better if you gave more detail in the movie besides the begining...

Music/Story <3


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Only thing I found..

was in the opening scene and he's walking through the woods, maybe use a dark shade of green instead of blue, for the background.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


How is it that people that produce things that poor with so very little animation what so ever and Just shit loads of pictures and tweens in and out of them, can ever get into the top daily 5? I dunno whats happering to the newgrounds world but surely there must be some people that get the email in the morning or whatever with this as #5 and you watch it and think "ican do better than that. So why is that down here and mines not"? Sorry no offence to the creator of The Arcane Flute just it anoys me to see things like this up instead of better ones that i find just in the portal which dont have a great score....


Rated 5 / 5 stars

not bad

For your first flash movie, and as a rushed school project I give you a B+ for well all the categories, it needs a little work but all things can never be perfect. While some people might not like it that is their opinion and my opinion is that I do like it and the votes never lie! So it deserves to be featured, and you deserve my applause for actually making it, reminds me of my flash dream...


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

its nice and all....

nice but you need more things to put it in i actually knew that the light was going to go way cuz the light was always on the flute nice submission tough



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Starts well then hits a bum note

Despite the rather simple animation...the tale was starting to really charm me...and just when I got ends with a very weak and abrupt pay-off. I understand you were working to a deadline but as a member of the audience I am left disappointed. Up to the flute's disappearance I thought it was well directed and well I said, a little rough in style and delivery at times but it was telling the story well. The music was a bit choppy...too many your big changes lost their impact. Stick to 1 or 2 themes and then save your mood changes for when it really counts. I'd be interested to see a part 2 if you find time. Generally well done.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


i mite be wrong...
but isnt that more of a recorder or something than a flute, cause flutes you blow in from the side of one of the ends
while what was in the flash, it was played by blowing air into one of the ends.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

nice shit!

nice movie i like the style!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Pretty Good Start

Nice. It could use some work, but overall, it wasn't that bad. Keep practicing.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Really rushed

It's a pitty you didn't spend as much time on each part than in the beggining, it would have been quite better. Though you drawing abilities need to improve, the animation was pretty good. The plot was really uncommon, it made the movie more interesting.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

not bad

neat concept, lovely sndtrack, but tooo looong. wouldn't have been too long if there were more of struggle, but the character seemed too simpy to be able to put out a fight or search. keep working, i think with experience you could do good.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good.

I really like the idea. It's creatively simple.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


FUNNY, although its kind of weird that the dude, if he was all that obsessed, wouldnt see the flute the next day (since its also weird that there be clouds in the sky for 2 weeks) since if i was obsessed, i would be looking for it every minute of my life searching for it. but w/e


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Okay, I guess.

Wait, Did you delete this or is this the actual thing. Because this really isn't what I had in mind. But like It's not bad like I said before.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

good for a begginer

but wtf with the flute title?.. its a flower.. o.O?
