Jinas 1: A New Friend

Author Comments

Jack, a simple scarecrow, has been protecting the farmlands for as long as he can remember. Spending most of his time sleeping and daydreaming, he is shocked when his crow friend Tony has some big news. There might actually be someone like Jack far away and Tony guarantees it's worth the journey. Accompanied by the old rabbit Roy, the three set off to see if there really is more behind the horizon.

NOTE: the quality button works, but you have to wait till the movie is loaded if you want to toggle it to high quality (press button 2 times). Make sure you have 2GB ram if you watch it at high quality. The quality of the drawings greatly improves though

Some background info:
I know it has been over 2 years since i have submitted anything new. What happened? Well 2 years ago i started this project with great motivation, but somewhere halfway, after 5 months, i completely lost all motivation to draw and animate. This could have been done in 7 months or so but instead i took a 1,5 year break. I really needed it, to get away from it all for a while, to regain inspiration and motivation. I mainly focused on my study and social life and even though i made very little that period, i think i learned alot about art and animation by just watching and reading stuff. I plan to make a few smaller movies before i start working on episode 2 of this thing. This series is meant to have 5 episodes, but i sincerely hope the others won't take me 2 years each also lol. Anyway, Take care



i want to see MORE!!!!

somone need to shut the stupid frog up! the next one, somone kill her or shut her up or somthing cuz that frog has issues!!!!

very good

it's a video you can actually become emotionally drawn into. It's really, really good.

P.S. if that frog talks like that all the time, please either make her shut up more, or kill her off : )

Great Job

Awesome dialog and character development. And, stellar VO work. I love the rabbit. You can really feel the sense of "wise" and "learned" from the way he talks. Keeping making flashes that you love. Even if the flashes that you love take a lot of your free time up. I think it's great that you want to take some time off and work on your skills too. It really makes me look forward to when you actually start making more flash work and submitting it here.

I must see more

The voice acting in this is nothing short of fantastic. It is so nice to see a short with good voice acting. The story is great, and the animation is great. I can't wait to see the next ones!
