The Lady In White

Author Comments

Very well, boys & girls-

As promised, here is my new Flash movie.
It's original title is "Die Dame in weiƟ", which is german for "The Lady In White". The idea for this film came sponatneously out of the blue and is over two years old. I didn't really think I'd really make the film, but you know- sometimes in those glorious moments you have some time left... and bam, there it was. I made lots and lots of drawings and actual animations that aren't used in the movie because in the middle of it, I realized that the music track was too short- but, well, take a look and please give me some feedback how you like it.
Funny is that I drew 95% of it with my mouse until I managed to get a drawing pad. That time, I also was enabeled to make some frame by frame animations. Unfortunately I also did a lot of formtweening in the beginning which is vbery hard to control.
Anyway!
Yaddayaddayadda, I'll be done in a minute.
The awesome music is taken from the soundtrack of the korean movie "Old Boy", the musical piece is called "The Last waltz". If you are looking for a real good movie and you are also fed up with all the Hollywood bullshit, watch that film. It is one of the most brilliant movies I've ever seen.
Please also take a look at my other submissions and maybe drop me a line if you'll be so kind. I am always glad to hear some constructive critiscism, it's the only way I can improve my Flash skills.

Thanks for reading and enjoy,

Yours,

F. Hildebrandt

....

I don't really know what to say to you... You've made it hard to review this one...
Let me start off by saying that the graphics weren't as outstanding as I would have liked it, especially when you consider that this is very profound, and usually those are marked with great graphics.
Second, the movements were very stiff and robotic, and not very human-like.
The idea was good, but poorly executed.
More work, maybe?

While WAY better than bedtime...

I thought the animation was VERY robotic and unnatural for such an emotionally free flash. Every scene made me wish the movement was more smooth, but it just kept repeating the same awkward looping a few times too many.

But this deserves at least an 8, good job.

nice

Not gonna lie i figured all the newgrounds stuff was all crap
this was really good.



Artistic and unique.

Artistic movies on NG, while not unheard of, are rather rare. It seems to me that this is a story about love and loss. I cannot think of any other movie on NG that captures this theme in a similar way. Good job.

There were flaws, however. The biggest flaw that I detected was that the motion is jerky and unnatural. It lacked the fluidity of motion in the real world. It seems that the characters are moving in loops, repeating the motion multiple times as well, exacerbating the problem of the unnatural motion. Watch the movie yourself and you will see what I mean. This jerkiness distracted me while I watched this movie, especially during the dance scene and when the man is walking into, through and out of the dark space. maybe the looping, unnatural movement was intentional, but it distracted me and detracted from the experience.

Still, I think that overall this was a good movie. I hope to see more submissions from you soon.



Nice work!

I like your animation style! Nice work on the clothes.
