Hey, BIG THANKS to all of YOU for the FRONTPAGE!!!
After a year of festival screenings, "Leftovers" is ready for Newgrounds. It's a six minutes film, so get ready for it. Sheldon (Aunty Rae is his NG name) did a great work on sound on this one too. Enjoy!

Beautifuly done

What more can I say`?

Good work

Very amusing, and true >:D

IT is amazing.

Such a s perfect way of showing each of the things in life and such. having chanses of having a double life, and leaving it for money, a life with someone to be with you, and now, nothing is left.
Just... leftovers.
I loved it, cool and interesting, humorous and soft. i like it so much.

5/5 10/10


in such a short movie, you offer a good satirical view on life, which is something quite rare on newgrounds.
the movie was never too slow nor too fast, and you kept away from all the clich├ęs. actually, it is really a work of art! congrats!
at times though, the music was insufficient. but i guess it matches nicely with the visual.
good job, keep posting your things!

Best of 2007

We have a saying in hollland that goes like 'The one's dead is the other's bread'. I guess it sums up the concept of this film very nicely.

Big ambitions, different plans, fallen dreams, making compromises... This movie has it all. Everything packed in a flash animation that consists out of 1 background and very little sound effects. Yet there is still enough detail in the animation to keep the viewer entertained for the entire 6 minutes and the content goes deeper than a 2 hour hollywood movie.

The balance between humor and drama is perfect and each follows up in a really subtle way after the other. It's really interesting to see how each of the characters have their own views on how to handle the situation and how every time the dream gets brutally disrupted by other characters, forcing them to compromise. I like how there isn't a moral and how the viewer gets left with the question 'what was the use of it all?' The strength of this short lies in the fact that it manages to bring a comedic note to these seemingly serious questions with trivial actions from the wonderfully drawn characters.

Highly inspirational and as you said in your comments, this is really festival material. I'm sure it will win alot of prizes. With this you have set the bar for yourself really high though and I'm eagerly awaiting to see what you can come up with next.
