*EDIT II* If you feel that the part with the dog is a bit out of place, then you must go watch my other flash, this will explain a few end scenes of The Lost Lake in greater detail. Thanks!

p.s I thought my publicity was over after I did my rounds on the front page, but obviously not, thanks for weekly 3rd! Wooo!

*EDIT* F-F-F-F-FRONT PAGE?! Woohoo, thanks NG. And thanks for all the great reviews, amma go through em all now :D:D:D - Woo for daily 4th too, but cmon, front page!

Hi all,

Its been 5 months in the making but its finally finished! This is a music video I made for a local band, don't worry Newgrounds I have permission to upload ;)

So I hope you all like it, lotsa blood, sweat, tears and cups of tea went into making it.

Oh, and the band love it by the way! Cheers Number!

Length: 5:08

p.s thanks Tom for allowing me to slightly over-step the filesize limit! And viewers, don't click scene select unless the video has fully loaded, thanks!

This is kind of a sequel (although it can standalone) to my last submission so if you like it, please feel free to check the other one out too, thanks!

By the way, if youre experiencing slowdowns (old computers/laptops) then you can go watch it on youtube, just search "lost lake number" (without quotations) and it'll be one of the first results, look for a thumbnail of trees

This is a nice animation. :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice.

I can see a lot of thought and work went into this piece. The music fitted perfectly, and like Coracti said, a little more detail on the characters would be nice, maybe less characters with more of a story to each one? I dont know, that just my opinion.
What i do know is that you have created something that is great, and the band should be proud to have this as their music video. 10/10

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Imaginative interpretation

The flash captured me from the very start and managed to wrap things up at the end. You had all those little hints scattered around leading to the reveal, after which you involved some more elaborate storylines. Possibilities for the subject you chose are probably endless and you managed to portray all those that matter. I don't know if you did it by instinct or careful planning, but good job either way!

I like how your ideas went together with the song. You didn't just make it flow along nicely, you made it better. I would have loved to see additional detail on the characters, but the lack of it didn't make my experience any worse. You might consider improving in that department as a future step, though. Just to make your work solid.

Other than that, very impressive! You're on to something with this, so you earn all 10 of my points for hard work and talent.

Thanks for the great review. Im glad this is still getting coverage, altough I think Ive progressed quite a bit since, animation wise.

I knew from release that the only thing letting this down was the visuals and its been a priority since to improve.

Anyway thanks a lot, this was a delight to read


Rated 5 / 5 stars

one of my favorites by far

i love that the train is a symbol of their journey to the afterlife. The soldiers story is sad. i love how the old couple died together and also the part where the one guy is brought back to life and gets off the train. great symbolism, great song, great band, and most of all great job! 10/10

i dont understand how some people cant understand the meaning of it. it's fairly easy to comprehend.
