This is my Diploma project that I've been working on since November 2006. It is 10 minutes long and you will need Flash Player 8 to view it properly. I'm really anxious because only a few people had seen it before now, and this is my chance to get to know what real audience thinks about my work. Hope you'll enjoy it!

Thank you so much everyone for the Daily Feature, for the Front Page and for all the nice reviews :) I noticed that some of you had mentioned the Brackenwood series in relation to my movie. I would like to say that I consider Adam Phillips (chluaid) the best Flash artist ever. I often watch his movies and try to learn from them, especially the effects such as water, lighting effects and such. His level of animation is something to aim for to me, and it's a honour to know that my movie makes some people think about his works :)

Also, concerning the music, I would like to say that I did not find a suitable music, nor did I animate to follow a previously chosen melody. Alexander Ahura made the soundtrack specifically for this cartoon :)



Rated 5 / 5 stars


There isn't much I can say about this, it pretty much speaks for itself. Great animation, music, and story. Its like a forgotten style of cartoon that I want to see more of.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Simply breathtaking!

The animation, the audio, the plot, the theme...all of it just fit together to form what I believe to be one of the best movies on newgrounds.

I could go on and on about my personal take on the meaning behind this brilliant work of art, or I could discuss the subtle nuances of detail in the character animation that gave everything so much depth without so much as a single spoken word in the entire piece. But...I'll let other viewers find out for themselves.

In closing...this movie deserves to be on the all-time top 50 on this site!

Thank you! I try to keep all my movies free of any dialogue and I'm glad you liked it this way :)

I'm sorry, I clicked on 0 instead of 5 by mistake!

god and this is so bad ass, I can at least put it in my favs.

Awesome work



Rated 5 / 5 stars


That was absoloutley awesome, I've never seen a flash as good as that (graphics wise). I'm speachless, just absoloutley mint. I don't think you'll have any problem getting your diploma with that, along with daily and weekly awards.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This is less a flash movie and more a work of art which could span any animated medium. The whole feel reminds me of a Miyazaki film, amazing animations and pacing, movements felt very natural and fleshed-out. You really took the time with this submission and it shows, thank you.
