--woah, thanks Tom. I was REALLY not expecting front page for this!

This is my newest animation. I started it near the end of january and finished it up leading up to now.

I ended up with a lot of time off (well.. a week) after exams were done with so I got back to my cave and felt like animating a little. I know its been ages since I've submitted anything, let alone something solo. I want to be more regular about it for the next little bit and I've got some ideas to work away at.

As for this piece, I like how it turned out. Its definitely a calm, relaxed experience. You ultra-violence folk might not like it much, but thats alright.

I think it's the first time I've used Flash's blurs in anything. Usually I don't like them much but they fit in a couple places here.

Its up to you to read into the 'story' if you choose to. There's only one subtle thing that makes it kind of clever. Maybe someone will catch it, maybe not.

Its pretty long for me, actually. Its 112 seconds. Usually I'm lucky to beat 1:15. AND its 24 fps, so thats like, 2684 frames. woah dude.

oh also I made all the music. its very plunky! I only had garageband and my computer keyboard to work with, but yeah, that was fun too.

Anyways, hope you like it. Leave reviews with your thoughts, I usually respond.




This was a neat little cartoon. Very futuristic and simple. And looks like you were experimenting with multiple things in one flash. Which was not always a good thing. At some parts you would just tween the train while at other parts you would animate it as a bunch of rectangles.

The music fit the theme well but was very monotonous. It got stale after a while and I really wish you would have put more in it.

thanks man, good advice.




I read back in the reviews like you told Jefpef to do and... is the "subtle thing" how he gets on the train just to enjoy the ride? because thats the only thing i can see it being...
anway... I liked the soft feeling the abstactness to the whole thing and this helped me get more tired because I was actually about to go lay down from a long night lol so thanks? =P nice job

thanks boregamer
thats not the 'subtle thing', but someone else got it.

lmao usually you don't want your animation to put people to sleep but I guess in this case its a good thing :)

Wow. I am amazed

The quality of the animation is not very good but... one thing i cant quite catch makes up for it all! this is just beautiful, this has a kind of beauty so light only some can understand. it just lightens my day.

I love this. And i wouldnt get tired of seeing it one million times!!!

I guess I enjoyed this movie. And I loved the style, simple but accomplished what it needed.

My critique: Could of had a little more story behind it, possibly he meets a girl on the train and you could show them holding hands or viewing out the window.
Though the music was fitting, tit could have had more variety, it got repetitive around the end.
Also, the imagery got a little repetitive as well, though every scene was pulled off nicely there could of been more variety (e.g. the part about him meeting a girl).

All in all a nice movie that I'm giving a 4/5 for the effort, just remember to work on your storyline and your movies will be great.
