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 :)


Quite Possibly the Best Thing on Newgrounds

This is by far one of the best pieces of flash I have seen here or anywhere for that matter. Very well animated, audio was nearly flawless, the story and the sheer abstract feeling it induced were remarkable. The only nitpicky thing about this was that the character models were a little too cartoonish (resembling the powerpuff girls XD ). So this flash did show imense effort and I hope to see more submissions this good in the future so keep it up.

A nice story

It had no words, but a really nice story. If you can pull that off so well, you deserve a ten.


This is by far one of the best works of flash that i have ever seen, it was truly a work of art. The level of dedication that u put into this is apparent. I hope to see more of your work.

Wow, that was awesome.

Professional-quality work, definitely. I had to watch it twice to notice all the details. Great plot, music, animation, everything. I gave a 2 for humor because there were a couple points in the movie where I had to smile, not because it was funny, just because of the irony. I loved when the tribal girl took him home and "evaporated" (for lack of a better word). Great job!

Great graphics, great music

The huge amount of work and care is very apparent in your Flash, in particular in your inventive use of the program's effects to give this adventure a very rich, textured feel. The story was engrossing, the theme intriguing, your animation was superb (great cat), and I was enthralled. A fantastic piece of fantasy, well-executed in every respect!
