The song

What is the name of the first song in this flash (Or the second song, if you count the intro). I think I've heard it before, do you perhaps know where? Name of the song or where I've heard it would be greatly appreciated! It's stuck on my brain.

Other than that I'd like to say it's a great short! Deserves all attention it can get!
the only thing is perhaps the voices being slightly loud and the lines being a bit sloppy here and there.

Other than that, great job!

A treasure indeed.

Once I saw the art I thought: 'Wow, this movie has a very nice atmosphere.' And it did during the whole movie. You had good writing, your audio could've been better and maybe some more emotion in the voices but one thing struck me in particular.
I don't think that this should've been animated. I think if you made it into a comic it would've been better. But that's just my opinion.
You have a good style, good atmosphere and a good story, but I think it would've been better if it was a comic.

I like it

its good, but like others said it needs work on the audio,
its still a great concept though

Thanks man, glad you enjoyed despite the rough audio. This was my first time working with sound, I'm gradually getting better at that as hopefully the later episodes will attest! :D


Was the music from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic???

smbhax responds:

Nope, it's just freely available music composed by Kevin MacLeod. You can get it at his web site, incompetech.com.
