The long overdue follow-up to my last submission:
.:The Dream:.

For site resrtictions, I had to optimize this file down to under 5MB, for the higher resolution version of this animation, go to:

This piece is actually the opening title sequence for a full 30 minute short, featuring The Go-Man. Rest assured, the wheels are already in motion and there will be more submissions soon... and you won't have to wait another 3 years for it!

:: EDIT ::
3 Years has gone by and I do apologize for those who have eagerly awaited another animation. The story itself is still something very close to me, but life being what it is and circumstances being what they are, I have found myself at a point where I work on the story in a different capacity, right now... in writing. I hope you have enjoyed watching this animation and I hope you continue to enjoy it as much as I have making it. And when the next animation arises, I hope you will enjoy it then as well.

Thank you for your support,


good good

Very well drawn and animated flash, but you should use a script writer because the dialogue is a bit bland or just lame.

Very good animation

Ekstremly well animated. but i felt something was missing. if you had made a fighting scene or something it would almost be perfect. but it was all like "here is the go-man he is almost omnipotent and he kicks ass but that part you have to imagine" but besides that. very good job

I liked it.

I really liked this. It's an amazing start to the full short, but i can't help but give you constructive criticism.

It seem's like a typical good guy bad guy thing. Now don't get me wrong, but i really do love these good guy bad guy stuff, but it seems too predictable. The last line was used in many movies and flashes i've seen, but it fit very well with your flash.

Remember this is CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM! I know how have great potential and i just want me to be your stepping stone to untapping that great potential.

Keep it up! You're doing great so far!


Did anyone else find the opening sequence remarkably similar to scenes from the recent Daredevil/Spiderman movies? It's just uncanny how Go-Man's rooftop acrobatics sync-up with their movements, don't you think? A poster before me mentioned a process called rotoscoping, so i can assume duplicating the choreography of another movie isn't impossible and, in Go-Man's case, was used perfusely to make its opener look stylish and professional.

Now I'm not saying that your flash wasn't good but if other, licensed, materials were used to make it you can at least give credit where credit is due.

Nice appropriation, shame there's no catagory

I'll give the Flash a break and give it an 8 in graphics and style, mainly for that first half. I got really excited by the beginning, there was great character designs, interesting monologue and a professional beat that most Flash lack. However that second half risked the achievement of the first.

No doubt there have been many comments on mixing 3D and 2D animation, so I don't need to go over it too much. Okay, the Flash is called Go-man, so I can see why he was the focus of the second half, but his design was just so boring. Why not use the dude in the alley or the guy with silver hair? Go-man is just too plain, especially when you have to consider that there is no bad arse monologue to carry the action sequence and we have to watch him jump around the various Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed (?) skylines.

Excellent opening, but the ending left a bitter aftertaste. Watch out for that lemon flavoured conclusion.
