EDIT: Thanks a bunch for the feature in the Treasure Hunt!

The idea for this movie came to me in a flash (pardon the pun), and I knew I had to make it. Don't ask me what this means. I know, but I can't really explain. I know that it's not an environmental message, though.

Also, Firth makes some pretty amazing music, as well as movies. Go check his shit out.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

im not a fan of saving trees, but...

it was a good flash. the animation was smooth and the music fit perfectly to the story. btw this is much better and deeper than the last treasure hunt 09 flash i saw: dark times - abortion.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It tells a good story.

The unique concpet and storyline of this flash is what makes it so thought-provoking. I thought the artwork was creative, I like the style you used for it. It felt like I was watching one of those David Firth flashes, and then I saw you used his music (which fit the mood of the flash extremely well). All in all, it reminded me of the Giving Tree book, since the tree repeats its course over time.

The flash gave me an emptry feeling, so I felt like the flash was missing something. The ending came along, and I couldn't think of anything to complain about. This is deserving of a perfect score, and I like the symbolism of how you intended the trunk to look like flesh. You do not come across interesting pieces like this too often, I appreciate being able to view a flash like this. Keep up the excellent work.

Peacefull and sad.

I like it, it was sad but true.

And i think trees are alive.
And ofcourse they can feel, like anything else.

Simple yet complex

I like how it isn't directly stating views on tree-cutting, but just tells it as it is in an interesting, narrative way. Nice stylized illustration, and I can see the Firth inspiration in there. Nice work
