The Composer is an animation following the life cycle of a young boy to adulthood, who uses the purity of music to heal wounds, and inspire the hearts of others.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this, it has taken a lot of work.
Thanks Tom Fulp for your fantastic support, and Francine Louise for your voice talent

Very Moving, but...

.. since I'mtotally devoted to music, as a musicologist, and composer, I cannot rate this any higher. The huge five chord-pop cliché that keeps repeating itself througout the whole video, is simply not convincing enough if the main character is supposed to be a professional composer. On the other hand, the animations are great, and the whole melancholy justifies the somewhat predictable story.

Try to listen to(and understand) many different types of music, contemporary orchestral works, 18. century piano music etc. and increase your musical vocabolary. Most people in here might be holding back tears, but listening to the tune alone, would drive most people out of sanity in a few minutes because of the repetetiveness.

Thats all I have to criticize... Keep up the good work!

what little animation you did was pretty good... audio was pretty good... pretty boring overall... all the symbolism people will love it im sure. You're a good animatior... don't waste on practically still images.

meh :(

its was hard to decide, from the good,smooth framing.

But the story made me melt through my pants, he was not in a worse place than the homeless man, his parents just brokeup and unless i'm missing something that was crap.
If this is an auto-biography it makes it slightly better but no, no, bad JAZZA.
stick at it thuogh, liked the music.

Decent, but very overrated...

I can see that you're a fantastic flash artist, and a decent musical composer, but the storyline really wasn't that great. I mean, we all have our problems, and I suppose we deal with them in different ways, but I can't think of any people that would drag a piano (by the way how did he do that by himself???) out onto the sidewalk and play it while crying their eyes out. The ending was the only part that stirred me at all, although I felt kind of sad when the composer became a has been. Also, although you're bloody lightyears ahead of me in musical talent, the piano piece really wasn't very epic at all. I think overall that this was a pretty good movie, I just think it definitely shouldn't be on the top 50, let alone 1st of all time. I try not to be a prick in any of my reviews, and you don't deserve to take any shit from anyone (especially me, a guy who's never made even a 1 out of 10 flash movie), but I just think this submission is a bit overrated.

... i liked it for the reason that its very well done and all that but damn .. i hate depressing stuff, i'm not saying that it doesnt have sentimental value or that it's plain old crap, i just cant cope with depressing stuff like that
