Daily 3rd Place! Wow! Thanks everyone for the votes and views and reviews! And the TROPHY! Whoo! *dances slightly*

We started this series back in late November and have concentrated almost all of our time into designing the world, characters, voice talents, picking the right music, adjusting volume levels, animation quality, and story development. So we hope this flash is as special to you, the viewers, as it is to us.

Mark of the Beast Snacks

Episode 1 : Dreams of Beyond

Two young boys have always wanted to leave the confines of their village, however it is surrounded by a magic barrier that they cannot pass... However, with the sighting of a strange talking beast and the calamity in the skies, they might just get their chance at adventure...

We would like to thank all the test viewers and people that helped us along the way in getting this series up off the ground and making it a reality. We'd like to thank our girlfriends for sleeping all alone because we were up tirelessly working and pushing toward perfection and utilizing our skills to their full potential. There is always room to grow, but I am unashamed to say that this is our first flash that I feel we poured everything we have into.

About the upcoming Episode 2 : We already have the full script and story line and even the basic outline for Episode 3 and are currently working on the animation and voice acting process for Episode 2. We'll have it launched as soon as we feel it has gone beyond what we have accomplished here for Episode 1.. As they say, practice makes perfect.

Enjoy the flash and let us know what you think.

We hope you enjoy,

Nathan Gibson and Steve Garnett

I quite enjoyed this one.
The only two things that bothered me was the lack of frames in some scenes and the sound quality a bit.
In the next one you should include an menu wich will include an scene selector of some sort.
Can't wait until the next episode :)
p.s.: Front page material from my point of view:)

Its been a while since..

Iv seen a movie as magical as this. It was truly amazing.
A random completely original little cartoon that will recieve a trophy i hope.
My only criticismis that it didnt run very smoothly somtimes, and u should fix tht.

tacobuttfish responds:
