the Last of the Dashkin

This is the story of the last of the dashkin. The people are all gone and in a world of innocent animals, the solitude, the sadness and bitterness have corrupted his view of life. What does the future hold for such a tragic creature? Will he wander the planet, forever alone until his death? Will he always be the wild King of Brackenwood?

It's a massive honour to be nominated for a 2nd Tank Award, thanks NG! Thank you for front page, all the great reviews and the incredible score for Daily Feature.
Thanks to Brackenwood fans and donors for all the support not only during the 4 weeks I spent making this, but also in the 2 years since I submitted Waterlollies.

Since then I've been working on the Brackenwood feature film outline with my good friend Ryan O'Loughlin. With no plans for a new web episode in the meantime it occurred to me that Brackenwood fans could be waiting years for the feature. I didn't want to abandon them altogether, so this new movie is my way of staying in touch with them and the NG audience.

This is the first Brackenwood short to break away from the "character introduction" style movies that had little or no character motivation and plot. This is a story, not only answering a lot of questions, but asking just as many new ones.

I used Flash CS3, the .fla is over 300MB (half of that is audio) and it took me 4 weeks.
Don't worry I won't be leaving it another 2 years. I plan on starting storyboards on the conclusion in jan-feb 2010.



This animation is very well done.
I like the amount of detail you put in, it makes the animation look great.
This is very mystic and profound. ( in a good way).
Keep up the great work.

Truly Inspiring

You Brackenwood animations are simply amazing and I beg you to please get this turnt into a series that will be shown on TV!, I cant stand just 5 minutes of this raw talent being shown, with a amazing story.

Audio is great, the Narration was also a great addition but in some ways, Maybe BrackenWood and Biteys story would be more effective if you let people draw their own meaning to it (if you get what I mean).

Like Always your animation is simply to die for, Gorgeous like always. I hope theres ALOT more coming from Bitey.

Thank you for this and your other Brackenwood films :)


I can't wait for it.

luvd it

i think that was one of the best flash video on this site..good job man cant wait to see more of your work!!


Everything was perfect except for the way Bitey runs. It looks a bit sloppy. But that is according to the standards I hold for your animation. Still a beautiful piece of art.
