--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.




i do like this its good but its weird how the train keeps changing???

p.s. i 'kinda' agree with the guy below

Really cool bro

I really enjoyed this one. The animation, the backgrounds, the music. It was all so good and relaxing. I only wish it'd last longer.
Good job man. :D

thanks dude


I thought it was well designed... but pro and cons come with everything so..

1. Music- The fact that you make your own music is amazing. And that song that you put in the flash is something I would expect to hear on a train. Very soothing and calm. Fit perfectly.
2. Drawing style- I'm not sure if this is how you always draw or animate but I love the kind of abstract feeling to it. Where nothing really physically connects together but the bond is obvious.

1. UGH!- I hate hate hated how in one of the begining scenes the color of his head was almost identical to that of the sky. So it looked like a body without a head just standing there. Very annoying.
2. Purpose- Well I do thing I understand what you were trying to accomplish (nothing crazy action packed. a simple calming relaxing train ride) I do believe it could have used something a little more. I can't put my finger on it but it was lacking something like... umm.. "jazz hands" if you get the meaning.

All in all I really enjoyed the music and the flash. The way the face lit up when the train was comming in. I really like your style and I look forward to seeing you improve and create more wonderful flashes. ok im gonna go watch this again!!
