UPDATE 1-28-2009
Though I know a lot of people were pretty stoked about this, I think it has a 95% chance of never coming to pass. As you can tell, it's in like a 12FPS, no play button, choppy animation, etc and I didn't really want to go back and fix it once I progressed in my knowledge of Flash and whatnot. Because of this, I have thus undergone a NEW project, equally as large scale, but much different as well. So this may at some point come back down off the shelf, but more then likely this will simply be a fictional trailer and nothing more. Thanks for watching, nonetheless :D Cheers

-This is the opening "credits" to an animation I'm starting in Flash CS3. This is my first flash movie, so it's taking me forever to do, seeing as I'm learning as I go. I am simply watching tutorial online and getting some ideas of how things work. Also, I've noticed that this is quite a large file-size for the length of the movie so far. Not exactly sure why, but hopefully I'll figure out a way to reduce the size w/out reducing the quality.

-Story: This is,as mentioned, the opening sequence to what will become a full soundtrack, multi-actor voice dialog film that I am imagining will be anywhere from 8-9min to as much as possibly 15-20, depending on many many factors. The basis of the story is this: The main character, Kate, is in a great relationship. Her and her boyfriend of many years never fight and seem to be in love. However, one day while stopping by his apartment unexpectedly, she finds him in bed with another woman. Now Kate has a very severe case of anxiety and claustrophobia and so with this newly added stress she decides to leave the city and spend a weekend or so at her family's cottage in the mountains. Wide open space, no people around, and she has a brand new kitten that she decides to bring along. Everything seems fine, until certain events start to unfold and slowly confine her to smaller and smaller areas. At first she cannot make it to the nearest town and eventually is confined to her home. This film will be an emotionally driven thriller that I hope will turn out great!

-ANY suggestions or Flash Tips whatsoever are greatly appreciated! I'm such a newbie at this, but so far I'm loving it. I hope you enjoy this short clip! :)

(Also) Proverbs 6:6 Entertainment is stated in the credits. This is a fictional company I've created for myself to be used as a sort of signature for this and any future animations/films I will do. In the bible that verse more or less says hey, don't be lazy. I've taken it as if you want something done, do it yourself if possible. Instead of pitching this idea to someone, I decided to take the initiative and learn Flash and create it myself. Hence the fictional production company name. Just FYI. :D

Song is?

I agree with what Rotinaj had to say. The detail was epic and awesome and all, but with how slow things moved, and the unrealistic way the car turned kind of threw it off for me. It would have been better to put less detail in such things and have it move faster. But I will say, you are damn good at drawing. The only real thing that bugs me to no end is that I can't find the song you used! I looked through the bands site and even searched all of the lyrics their song and couldn't find it! The song is awesome though, and I'd love to go buy the CD it's on... if I could ever find it.

CMFalkenhagen responds:

The song is on a remix cd called Exit Lights by a band called Falling Up. The girl is a guest artist that normally doesn't do that kind of music, but sounds great on this track.

"The Cottage" - (Credits): 10/10

How can you call yourself a noob at animating? This is actually very good. I guess you're trying to play it down so that you will have room for improvement in your mind. This might turn out to be one of the best flash movies ever, judging from this sneak peek. It was awesome to see the iPod Shuffle make an appearance, everyone always talks crap about my Shuffle and says that Nano is better. Also, I don't read the bible much but I think I could use that verse's advice for myself because I'm so lazy. :p


Rated 5 / 5 stars


OMG this looks awesome. Can't believe it's your first. My firsts were lame as. But I usually rush stuff. Can't wait to see more. I'll have to try and take my time and do a good animation one day... too many assignments to do though. Keep up the good work. :) Love the shots and sound effects. And the style is great. I could just keep watching it for ages. And the credits... looks like something straight from a real movie. You rock!
