If anyone is wondering, the full movie will never be released due to some problems, I apologize. TedJohnston never returned to me with the movie score, so I never continued. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying TedJohnston is a bad guy, he's still awesome!


Hey, this is a project I've been working on and off for quite some time now. It's called: "Lose A Smile, Get A Frown." Content-wise, it is quite experimental; this is my first actual film using flash 8 and its various effects. In addition, I used many video effects because I've been learning adobe After Effects in my free time.

This project started in October-ish as just a way to learn the various new flash 8 filters, but it soon spawned into a vastly larger creation. The final movie should be very very exciting. I collaborated with a great musician, TedJohnston, and he is doing the original sound track for this movie. Be sure to check out his stuff in the audio portal. Also, I got a lot of my good friends to do some interesting voice acting. Expect the actual movie to be out around August.

After watching this trailer, I hope you get as excited to see the movie as I am. Thanks!

It's sad that you'll not be able to continue. I am a huge fan of your stuff though. You have such an interesting style.


good song + animation skills= 10/10
er......where do i watch it?
the trailer said it would be out in august 2006,but now it coming to the end of 2007.

Very nice.

Again, I love your stuff.
Your artwork is very nice. It looks different from most things you see, in a good way.
I wish there was more of this, though. Maybe add more and show what the trailer is worth. Hope to see more.
9/10 only becuase it was too short and I didn't really understand.
I've been looking for this song for a while, so what luck to find it. :D


Incredible idea, and awesome artwork.
I can't wait for the finished product, man.

Very professional :)

Wonderful job, it is obvious that put a lot of thought into designing it to look like a movie trailer (now a days it seems that many artists just show you some random flash clip and are too apathetic to finish it then so they dubb it a trailer to avoid criticism). The music is attention grabbing and you convey emotion well in your characters (I love your individualized style graphically). I cannot wait until you finish your movie-I know that it will be great!
