My 2nd flash movie.
Not really a story... Just one life.

Enjoy :)

"We've come to the time when life stops giving us things, and starts taking them away." We all grow older, but not all of us will get wiser or make it to old age. You have to ask yourself, "if I die today, would I be happy with how my life turned out?" If every day you answer "yes", then if you do reach old age you'll look back and think "I had a good life." Every day gives you an opportunity to change the direction of your life little by little. Learn from the past, live in the present, and plan/prepare for the future. This review is starting to sound like a douche-bag "know-it-all" sig line on some idiots forum posts, so I'll wrap up...

Good flash. Touching reminder that time goes by and in the end, we are judged...by ourselves. Two thumbs up!

YemiOdu responds:

Thanks! And... have a good life ;)

Keep making more

that was probably the best flash I've seen all day and I agree with SpaghettiCowboy about how the music was good and the story a little bittersweet in a sense. Keep making flashes and I'll keep watching! ;D

YemiOdu responds:

Thank you very much ;) I'll try to keep making flashes :p

Top Job

Overall great job the music fit in well with the animation and really set the mood. I felt somewhat sad when I watched this but in a good way though.. Reminded me of observing demetia patients playing catch with a big red ball, they were so happy.. How funny it is that the human mind reverts back to where it starts and finds a love that was previously lost.
Sorry for the longish review just had to get that off my chest.

YemiOdu responds:

thank you for getting that off your chest ;)

good animation

i like how you draw the guys

and it was a good story so 10/10

YemiOdu responds:

Thanks! ^^

Make more

Good video hope to see more from you in the future. Something that I would personally add though would when he had his kids after the third just make him frown. But thats just me good job 10/10 dude

YemiOdu responds:

haha good idea! thanks for the 10! :D
