This animation has been split nto two parts, becuase it was really large and the synchrinisation was horrible.

This move has a production time of 5 years, but in essence I only spent 5 months working on it.

A little prologue:

The guy with the blue hat is Alan Edge, he's basically an assassin, but one of his contracts was stolen by someone else (the guy in the metal suit with the purple stripes) who is known only as BETA. So... Alan Edge moves onto another task so as not to have that one stolen too, but is confronted by Donovan (The new and mysterious Chief of Police) who basically beats him up and Alan runs away.

It's got great potential, because the movements of the characters seemed really natural. Animation was good, the storyline was okay, but felt more like a long introduction to the characters. I hope you'll improve your animations even further, and perhaps do so in combination with a more realistic storyline.
But overall, really good!

a little loose

It was koo the only thing that was kind of throwing me off were the voice overs.... i think you should get better people to do the voices just my opnion though...

It's not so bad

This flash was my first save. I don't think it should have been ever placed under judgment. The graphics and animation is poor (sometimes terrible...) - that is correct, but it has quite interesting storyline. Comparing with many other flashes under judgment - this one really is not that bad. The author clearly wanted this one to be something quite serious and we have to give him a chance to improve his skills.

So a word of advice - work on animation. Sometimes your characters move in a very strange way. I wish you good luck in the future. You have my 3/5 and 6/10 stars.

Decent Story

Good storyline... But ALMOST but NOT poor drawing style...
U got something here.. Maybe u can improve ur drawing next time & u dont have to use the same part for the part, try to draw new part for em to make the movement more alive, like hand wrist move around or something...

And yes, I'll watch the 2nd part!

Not bad

With voiceovers - here's a tip: take a camcorder and do them in your car with doors and windows shut - makes a great sound booth, and the camcorder doesnt pick up any fans or stray signals like a PC mic would because it aint connected to a computer. then you capture the video and extract the audio from it, and voila you have clean audio without expensive mics etc.

furthermore consider some ambient background music when a long dialogue takes place - it helps the mood and masks cuts.

animation should at least be to some extent frame by frame to be believable. the motion tween thing only takes the vibe so far.

nice story, i will look out for more from you.
