Alright, So I have been holding on to this one FOREVER... But I'm really nervous about submitting this because I don't know... It's not exactly my normal work... But since my last flash that I submitted yesterday did alright I figured what do I have to lose by submitting this one...

Please Comment! I can only hope you will enjoy this....
Thanks Always!

Oh yeah the music is by Sufjan Stevens called "All The Trees Of The Field Will Clap Their Hands"

Phylosophically deep

Your revisitation of infinity and life in the form of a cyclic clip (which has already been done before) is strangely (and enjoyably) refreshing and conceptually deep.

The simplicity of your style seems extremely appropriate in a music video (well chosen song btw). The video progresses slowly and well in synch, giving the perfect impression of how time and space, from nature's perspective, is eternal and cyclical.

The file size is ridiculously small, making your flash one of the few efficient ones to date in NG (smart move in reducing the quality of the song: it did lose a tad too much, but it still worked for me ^__^).

Excellent job.


this is awesome! i love your work! you have a unique style! i love it!

Another Triumph

This piece encapsulates the miracle - and also insignificance of - life very well. Another excellent use of symbology, coupled with good style, intuitive music selection, and impressive flash skills make this quite enjoyable. From the flash standpoint, I saw only one flaw, and it may have been intentional, anyway. It seemed that the orbit of the blue planets three satellites stuttered for a bit when it first began to zoom out. It seemed to clear up after that, though.

I really have nothing to add for you to improve your style, unfortunately. Although I can say I enjoyed your presentation of the rain clouds, the formation of the rainbow, and the disappeaarance of the rainbow with the rising of the sun.
Great job.

Thanks!!! Yeah I think the planets thing is a problem with the file... they shouldn't do that... I actually dont have the original file anymore... It went corrupt... so yeah... Bummer there... i was really upset about that for a while... i really didnt have time to get the finishing touches on it... But maybe it just works... I dont know... Lol I should try to fix it... maybe open the file on another computer will do the trick... thanks for your long recview!!! Lol and for the 8!!!
