Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 223 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

My first solo flash submission!??! Just kind of a short experiment.. do pardon the file size, I know it's a little on the short side. A five-day exercise based on a story a professor of mine once told me. I'll spare the details so you can decide what it means for yourself.

Done entirely in Flash CS3 and Photoshop CS2 (including the 3D looking stuff, which is actually only some 2D trickery)... rendered to video because the number of simultaneous filters and effects in some parts tend to make Flash players seriously unhappy :0
It actually took me longer to sort out the file formatting than it did to animate and draw... go figure?!

Using the "dim the lights" feature kind of helps too.

Plz do enjoy.
Thx

That baby's lips freak me the fuck out

Nice animation

the meaning to me feels like this
the crib being a metaphor for a prison
and the crane being freedom
the baby reaches for freedom he cannot grasp

Brain explosion... Not sure what that meant. At all. But I feel a little more like I understand life after that o.o

i like the concept not the baby but thats cuzz i hate children XD

Very good flash

From an animation point of view i thought it was very high quality and smooth, very believeable too considering babies are not you're run of the mill job. As for the meaning, it remains to be seen from my prospect aas i have yet to draw a conclusion. Good work.
