Sheb: Our first animation. Very short.

Ember: I'm sorry if this burned your eyeballs out of your sockets, because... I know your pain. I had to look at this with my goo for eyes UP CLOSE. And I also appologize for the lack of stop and start buttons. and preloader. and... like, 30 second long...ness. I made this two years ago and scrapped it. for any who care, the music is MNebula by some website that I have misplaced. it is on the music file, but I'm too dang lazy to fetch the exact webpage. Enjoy yourslow and painful torture.

Good and the rest of this only the author read.

I'm the guy that got his submission blammed and you gave me advice. Well i did what you said and it didn't work. Also do you know where i can find a mac flash turtorial.

RiftBetween responds:

Ack! I'm so sorry, I didn't see that anyone else made a comment to this. XD;

Ahh, sorry to hear about the blam. And I'm sorry I don't recall exactly which one. XD;; I've seen at least two movies that were blammed that didn't seem worthy of a blamming to me. What didn't work? Maybe I can walk you through it.


when you said slow and painful torture i thought you were kidding. the graphics are awesome, but thats it. theres nothing else. make something with plot with those great graphics and youll get a great score from me.

RiftBetween responds:

Sheb: We where jokeing. It was a quick and painless death.

This is really just a scrapped flash, we where throwing it out to see how it would do. Something decent of ours should be out by summer.

A Good-looking Bird

I assumed it was an episode to a story, but not much happened at all. Really like your birds animation, with all the ruffled feathers- the flash just wasn't long enough.
Try turning the sounds up and add a storyline of some sort if you want to improve it, it needs to be a lot more interesting.

RiftBetween responds:

Ember: Haha, yes, I appologize for the quiet sound. I couldn't turn up the dang song! I tried several times to turn up the volume, but I don't have any sound editing programs so I couldn't just get fed up and turn it up myself, so I was just a little dead in the water. At least I quieted the crow's caws, or your ear drums would've burst, trust me.
I'm so VERY glad we have a line of musicians at the ready now, I'll NEVER have to do sound editing again, Halleujah!!!

Again, I appologize for the shortness, I would've made it longer for you, but we couldn't edit it due to my little deleting spree. I hope we can make it up to you with the next episode. ^^ Thank you very much for the feedback, it was helpful.


that was cool!

RiftBetween responds:

Sheb: I really fail to see how this flash was very interactive. We don't even have a play button. xD;

Not very violent, or funny either; Unless you interpreted the kirby moon eyes as bloody, and very very funny.

Well, regardless, thanks for the good review. :3

Bit short for a preview.

I really support the animation, it borders on art, but as a preview the viewer is told nothing of plot, or even theme. I hope you have something figured out for a story because the art and sound show some talent.

RiftBetween responds:

Ember: Haha, I know, I trashed it because I couldn't shove everything I wanted in it with that song. Yes, it was mostly because of the song, I'll admit it. It's too short and too fast-paced for what I wanted to do, but I didn't want to believe it. (I must've been one strange 14 year old...)
I feel kinda bad about the lack of story line with it, actually, because you missed out on the opening dialougue too. I wish I could give you a review to the story that would bring it justice; but I appologize, I'm not the writer, just the animater. It's definately caught my attention, and I enjoy the story so far. I suppose... if you like Dragon Ball Z or Naruto, you should like this.

Oh good god, I have the fight scenes to do... maybe I should just commit seppuku now and save myself the trouble. lol

Anyway, thank you very much for you review, and I hope you'll enjoy our story once we get it out there. ^^
