Took around 2 months to make this one. Outlines aren't exactly "stable", I use tweens and loops, but most of it is done frame by frame.

If any of you are curious, I don't know what I was thinking exactly when animating this. I'm not going to give a long-winded explanation on how it's so so meaningful, but it probably contains more messages than a lot of 4.20+ flash (most are just violence and bad jokes though)

Oh whatever, the animation isn't all that great anyways. I don't expect it to get a 4, but who knows...

4.07 and front page!! Awesome guys!! Now I'll definitely make another one, though I expect it to be much harder work...



Its not everyday an animation like this comes along, its beautiful and rather sad at the same time. Bravo!

very good (but fix how the music cuts at the end)

I thought this was really quite original an I enjoyed it very much, though I do wish the music didn't just end in mid measure when it finished.

This was truly beautiful

For everyone who does not understand or agree with what I am about to say, please don't vote me down, because this does not necessarily represent what this film was about, but just how it struck me.

I thought this film was a masterpiece. It represented how the destruction of innocence and exposure to horrible actions at an early age (his unborn brother eaten), does not necessarily turn you into a bad person, and that the good inside of you can grow and you become a good person, even when you are desperate, as when it was hungry and almost ate the fly, but let it go because it could not bring itself to take a life. It showed that sometimes, being selfless is the better choice for you and the person you are helping, and that physical problems are not always the priority. It also showed a more realistic side of life, where, even after freeing the caged bird, it ate the fly. This shows, to me, that not everything will respond in kind to acts of pure kindness and good heartedness. When the blob appeared and saved the main character from the bird, that expressed to me that there are other people who are willing to help you for no reason other than to right a wrong and be kind. The rest, I want you to see from your perspective, because I want this flash to connect with you the way it did with me.

I don't care if the author or these readers didn't realize it at first, but this is my personal opinion. Please don't hate me for it.
