I guess with all the request, Now I have to make a sequel :). But first, I must finish my schedule projects before I come back to this. Anyways, that was just a quick update after reading all the reviews and pms

*Thanks for the daily award you guys

* Thanks for the front page Tom! And thanks to all the voters on newgrounds

Let me clear things up really fast. This is not actually based on the great Howard Hughes. I just used it as an name because I wanted to keep the aviator theme going by adding that little reference. It is NOT based on Howard Hughes


Let me give you guys a quick run down of where I got the idea for this story. When I was a little boy, my mother would read me this poem about this kid who dreamed of following in his hero's footsteps. Everyone as a child had dreams about becoming someone they looked up to or thought was really cool. Some might want to be astronauts... or a hero of some kind... However, the boy in this story wants to be an Aviator

So that's where the basic idea came from. I took a tiny bit from my life and applied it to this animation. I want to thank Deven Mack (also known as D-mac Double) for doing the voices of the little boy Howard Hughes and his father Jonathan Hughes. Francine Louise did the voice of Laney Hughes, the boy's mother. She nailed it in like two takes. I'm glad to be working with these voice actors yet again. It was tons of fun

Andrew Sinclair, a really talented musician, created the musical score for the animation. I didn't want to rush him because I felt like if the music was bad, then it would just ruin the submission. However, he did a bang up job on the music in this piece and hopefully I'll be working with him again sometime in the future. He really needs to be doing this for money like Cambo said because this guy is amazing :)

This is the first animation I have ever done using a tablet. For the backgrounds, I used Corel Painter X and Flash was used for the animation and effects (such as snow). This story is really close to my heart, so I hope you guys enjoy it. I started this on the week of Halloween and finished two day prior to today. Anyways, like always, I'll be reading all the reviews and trying to reply to everyone of them,

Running Time: 2 minutes

Video clips used in this movie are from King Kong, the original 1933 version created by RKO pictures



This was actually really good. It had amazing animations, and super voice acting. It was cute, and really nice, even tho it wasnt funny.


nice and animation and storyline is superior sorry but ending kinda lacked there but still great.keep it up, its nice to have people like you with stories like this it was great. like i said keep it up. dont forget to make a sequel. kinda like the kid growing up or something and becoming an aviator. just giving you a little tip there.

actually, the sequel i had in mind takes place right after he throws the plane. So it will start where this one left off


really nice piece of work. good one. :)


What I like about this piece in particular isn't just the awesome story, good animation, or the good audio and soundtrack. It was the stylization that you put into it. This animation had a unique feel that made me think of watching movies on TCM. I think you nailed the time period and also make a distinct style for your animation that makes you stick out above a lot of other artists.

This was my first animation of yours that I've watched on newgrounds, but I promise you it won't be the last. I can't wait for the sequel, whenever it comes out, and I'd be glad to help you with any voice acting you might need (I'm a Junior at a college for radio so I have access to facilities to record my voice and send it to you).

KartuneHustla responds:

Ill definitely let you know if I'm ever looking for parts

Beautiful But Short

This really sent an emtional chill over my body. The voice acting was AMAZING and the graphics were BEAUTIFUL. But when it ended.. I was like WTF? It seemed more like a very good intro than a movie. If you continue this, and enter this in as an intro, you will win things my friend.

Good luck.

KartuneHustla responds:

I don't get what you mean by win things hahahaha, but okay
