Well, this is my first flash movie. (this is the #1 thing not to say to get good ratings, but oh what the hell) I wrote this poem soley for flash, and when I finally got the program, I spent some great number of hours, learning the program and making this movie which is actually about what I think doubt is and could possibly look like. There are many different interpretations, so don't get confused if all the pictures of doubt look different. I am definitly going to be making more poem movies soon, and they should be better than this as I am getting more and more experience with flash. (Side Note: Very little of the art in this movie is mine, so if you think I'm the best artist in the world, don't)

Good job, but done before

I'd say this was well done for a first flash. But I've seen this type of flash plenty of times before. I liked the way you showed it though, despite the fact that it was only a poem. Maybe next time try using pictures that are liss grainy though, it makes the quality seem much better.

Poem, eh?

My problem with your submission is not your flash skill. For a first movie, it's pretty good. No, the thing this "poem" lacks is actual writing skill. Your poem is angsty, trite, cliched, heavy-handed, and pathetic. There is little doubt in my mind that you are (or were when you submitted this) a "troubled" teen wallowing in self-loathing. Even if you are not now and have gotten past your whiny stage, as a fellow writer, you need a reality check: stop writing poetry. Please, for the love of God and all things holy, do not write poetry again.

good text work

I thought that the text looked really good throught the animation, and the music worked well to accent the mood of the piece, as well as the visual components you provided, the only thing i would say was a little off were the characters that where in the foreground, the one walking across at the beginning seemed a little weird to me, but other then that great job

Not bad, it seemed somewhat hypocritical how you are talking about not letting doubt in, yet there was the presence of at least one but. Althought that could be the point, I digress. Good job, even thought the artwork wasn't yours, how you presented it was cool and the presentation definitely was yours. The music was pretty spiffy. The scene transfers were OK but not the best.

All in all, good job.
