Jinas 1: A New Friend

Share Collapse

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



Very well done.

Amazing/Touching/Calming, Very well done it was just an awesome fun adveture to drift your mind into. The ambiunce was so well done and realy makes emotions at a steady pace. 10/10

Briliant, well done!

A peaceful and interesting story about friends out in nature, going on a journey to a better place. Good animation, good story, everythings fantastic. I've seen it before some time, I'm adding it to my faves. I WANNA SEE PART 2!!!!


It makes me want to jump into Flash right now and make a great masterpiece. I love this story! I became attached to the characters by the time it was over. The crow is hilarious! It's definitely nice to see something like this for a change.

best of luck with it!


Thats cool! i really respect any one who can use flash that well, ill look out forward to seeing the other 4.

I can dig it

I like how the farmer brought it back into perspective. The story reminds me a little bit of " Watership down" . Good stuff.
