Thanks to everyone for the daily feature and for front page!

Hello everybody! The full title of this film is actually "And the Birds Flew from the Trees", and I just finished it for my finals at the School of the Art Insitute of Chicago where I am in my second year. The file size is incredibly large, but this movie is an odd mix of flash and scanned drawings. I hope people will be patient enough for the download!

A very big thank you to Tom for letting this movie be on Newgrounds, despite the size.

I hope everyone enjoys it!

This was very interesting and you really have a talent!
I really love these kind of movies, please make more of them!


that flash was magically delicious


Though I have DSL, I would have expected that for 15Megs, it would have been a lot longer of a flash movie. but for 2-3 minutes of video, it wasn't too bad. I think it was well put together, thanks for the view.

Still a magical piece to watch.

The style, specially in the opening frames, is delicious.

Music is beautiful.

Story was fairly well told, though I felt the end was a tiny bit unsatisfying - I was hoping to see him in his final destination or something else with a hint of conclusion about it.

Also, characters are inconsistent and seem elongated when seen from certain perspectives, as noted below. In the same vein, the woodsman running away seems to shrink too quickly.

Still a magical piece to watch.

Thanks for sharing.


It was well animated, and I liked the style. However, you need to work on your perspective a little bit. Now and then the characters were much too enlongated. I do realize that it's part of the animation style, however you should stay consistent with the way your characters look. I still gave it a 5 because I thought it was amazing flash compared to most of the crap on here nowadays.
