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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

a great flash story on NG

You can watch it many times and every time it intercedes an epic mood =)

I love it

I hope to see more of the dashkin in future =D

now that the storm is over..

ok, now that the big storm is finally over.. i have a pretty good chance of the author actually reading my comment.
uhm, as many people here i have seen all the bitey of brackenwood episodes.
and i must say, i never really enjoyed it.
altough this is absolutely the most graphic stunning flash i have ever seen (again and again, clip after clip of subliminal quality )
the story.. from my point of view could have been a little.. well more organized.
this feels like star-wars all over again.
if this where the first episode, and the others followed, the previous episodes would have made much more sence.
and thats basicly what makes it "bad" as a series.
BUT that is also, the only thing i can put you down for.
sound, animation, graphics.. its all there, and detailed to the max.
nothing has been left out..
this flash is worthy of being on nr1.

well done..
