Edit: Well I'm off frontpage, it was a good run, thanks for your support!

Edit: Frontpage? Wow! I really didn't expect this, Thanks Whichever admin put this up here! Also please recommend for Serious Shorts.

Edit2: Added a bit of stuff to the file, not to much though, fixed up some animation and added some more, enjoy.

This movie I made in about two days, I hope that everyone can take this flash seriously. If you are expecting something funny from this, just don't bother watching. This is a serious flash, filled with emotional depth.

Thanks to PianoForte for his inspiring piece of music, Cobalt Blue Sphere.

Hope you enjoy my animation. I respond to all reviews!

Simple yet effective

GReat animation whit great music, which suited the animatio great. I liked the use of colors cause it made it so basic and so beautifull, it takes a bit too long to get like stared whit animation so, try animating some more. Great job

Thanks, the lack of animation was the style I choose to go with. but thanks for the review!

You deserved those awards.

- Good stuff -
The music was great and it seemed to suit in to every moment perfectly so you chose it very well. It was great the way you made the women that was marrying the man pink as she was important. You overall chose the colours very well because it was right for every character.

- Bad stuff and improvments -
There was actually a bit of limit on the colours ut it was meant to be like that I suppose.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it, thanks for the review!


thats really all i can say, truly amazing, makes you rethink your life, i know exactly why you got front page.and i think the only reason you dont hav a better score is because there are to many stone hard people who, when they saw this said, he needs to clean up his animation or it was too long or it was depressing. the did not see the deep inner meaning of this. it is, truley, bueatiful.

Thank you, really, i'm glad people understood it. Thanks for the review!


That was most certinly an intresting idea and well presented to, I also liked the drawing style, that was pretty good. It was also pretty clever how at each stage, where there is another child, you see a simler past scene but in a diffrent perspective, that to me was pretty clever to see. Though the ending with two children seemed to not follow the same pattern.

The music was kind of strange, didn't quite fit in but at some points it did fit in, maybe a track that could do both for the happy stages and sad stages would have worked better, dunno, the music was still good though. There was a lack of any heavy animation, only light bits, but it seemed to work, pretty good work overall.

ReklessCreati0n responds:

Thanks, I don't see what was confusing about the last children, everything was focused on the main character, maybe it just didn't fit right? hmm thanks for the review!


beautiful music. nothing too fancy, but eloquent in its depiction of the cycle of life. also proves something doesn't have to be violent and mature-rated to be an amazing serious short.

Simple and sweet review, thanks for reviewing!
