This is my first properly created flash movie, it was a project that took place over 2 months of preparation and dedication.

All backgrounds were painted in Photoshop and transferred into flash.

The story is telling the life of a small bird, Mallory who has been bullied all her life. However when a storm arrives only one egg is left surviving. And guess who it belongs to...

Thank you so far for the great reviews and daily 5th! :D

This is beautifully done. The backgrounds are wonderful, and you made an excellent choice with the music. I have to say the ending was confusing, I only know it ends happily because I read the description. But other than that you did an amazing job. Well done


I dont even know what to say, this really hit a nerve with me, made me feel like crying for some reason it was just so beautiful. The art was like a story book and the music also was a great choice. You blew me away amazing work.

Most awesomeness!

A nice, relaxing piece. I especially enjoyed the backgrounds, which added a sort of hand painted feel, and the music was also a very nice fit. It was both peaceful and sad in nice amounts, with a little bit of hope at the end.
However I would like to comment on your animation for the birds. The movements were not very fluent, and the part when the birds were in the park (I'm guessing that it was what that bird was hoping for it's egg right?), used a lot of still images, which I felt took momentum away from the finished product. When I comment on the movement, I'm not referring to the birds head movement, since that's how their heads move.

In short, a most awesome animation which fell short in terms of character movement.
On a side note, not effecting my review, what was up with that blob that lived in the tree?

Lancorz responds:

Thanks, I realise that the bird animations are a little less detailed than they could be however I was only given around 2 months which were soley dedicated to story boarding and design. If I had more time I would have experimented with movement and researching more time on animals etc.
Also the blob was just to add variety to the creature content and to add a little cute-ness to it.

good job.

peaceful, non-violent, relaxing, the graphics are ok, the music fits the style. everything works.
the animation does not seem fluid enough at some points, but overall you put a good effort into this. (not to menchan that this is your first submited animation)
congrats.good luck.

Good stuff

I really liked the animation and art in this one. Very good. However, I was a little unsure about the storyline. I could only determine the finer details because I read the description, ie, that the last egg belonged to Mallory. Still, an 8 out of 10 because of the quality. I wouldn't define it as perfect though.
