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


I love your animation style, I've enjoyed all the Brackenwood movies and this one was no exception. I also enjoy the fact that you've gone back to Bitey and are trying to explain where he came from and why he acts with such resentment and bitterness. It's easy to see once you've watched this movie why he choses to be a mischievous individual. I'm looking forward to the next half! I have nothing but praise for your work. Keep it up!

Another amazing piece in the Brackenwood saga.

Well Mr. Phillips you have done it again. Your work never ceases to amaze me. I'm glad to see some dynamics added to what was a very two dimensional character before. I eagerly await your next piece.

This is one of the best flash movies out there. The amount of detail you put into your flash movies is just amazing. The story is also quite well formed. Not too little happens, but not too much. No episode is like the other, which is a great plus. If i was able to, i'd rate this 100, since it deserves it.
