This is my first full submission to the flash portal,
That said my background is in web based flash design.

The version of the film you're about to view is the Cut version, I cut It down to keep the file size in check, The uncut version ran about a minute longer, but it was mostly credits, if you folks really want I'll upload it down the road. That said the menu design is brand new, & PACKED with extras.

The story is meant to unfold realistically, so this is really just to set up the story,
Thats why it probably got a teen rating, instead of a Mature rating since not much happens in this one.

See if you can find the easter egg!

Nice art and menu work, but ruined by one thing

When I was navigating the menus, I was really impressed. It's obviously really well thought out, backstory-wise, and you definitely put a lot of development in ahead of time. I was really pumped to watch the flash movie after looking through this stuff, and I really liked the noir-esque visual style going on, although the backgrounds were a little too minimalist for my taste. Not too much action here, but it was a nice enough setup.

Then the voice acting started.

The voices are absolutely atrocious. It sounded like someone with a cold whispering too close to their bad microphone. They were hard to understand and their voices were annoying. I don't know if you are a good voice actor or not, as you're holding yourself back so much. Just let it out and be as loud as you want to be when you're recording. It'll sound much more genuine, and there will actually be some power to it.

Solve this voice acting issue and you might be on to something. Unfortunately, it's a really big thorn in your side at the moment. Good luck in the future, and I hope things only improve.

Love the storyline and the animations. This is really good :)

Pretty cool

I love the interface to select what you wanted. The only issue I really have for this, is the script/voices. The script is a little weak worded, kinda childish at points. And the voice acting is sub-par, I'm guessing (this is a guess) its because you have some less than great voice recording equipment. Anyway, I like where this is going, and I like the interface, a lot. So keep making them and I'm sure this series will keep getting better.

Hard one

On the one hand I liked your style and menu design. On the other hand, the dialogue and the voice acting need of improvement. Why are they talking in such a whisper. Maybe it was just how close you were to the mike. It sounded too intimate for comfort really.

I think this definately has potential though, so I would like to see more of it. Just ease up off the mike a little. Try to vary your voices somewhat. I know its difficult if you are working on this alone but the effort would be noticable and appreciated.

Also, try to recruit friends to be voices as well. Even if they did a poor job, it would be nice to have some variation to the voices. Some NGer's also do voiceacting for projects, just need to look around. Good luck on future projects!

Seems like it could potentially be cool, but the voices are horrible. You might want to fix that.

Great animation!

You just need a lot of work with the voices, sometimes you're just too quiet, the voices sound too similar, and/or your mouth is too close to the mic which makes stronger "P" "T" and "B" sounds every time you say a word with a p/t/b in it. But all in all, good job!

The Voice Kills it

Why are you whispering? Afraid someone might hear you?!
Let yourself be understood!

RE-DUB THIS FLASH, do it like you mean it and finish it.
Cut version my ass! The file just barely touches 5MB.

The animation here was done pretty well, I liked the little flapping on the clothing. The whole menu idea was cool. It was nice to see some of the base artwork and info about the series. To me it almost looks like you could take this Flash and put it right into a web page about the series which is cool.

Well the move itself was a tad short and hard to really understand without the background info.

A nice flash, pretty interesting.
