Ive been a member of newgrounds for years and years, watching and enjoying many of the films, but Ive never submitted any of my animations - so here it goes! I made this piece completely in Flash CS4 and sound effects in SoundBooth, hope you guys enjoy it, I loved animating it, even though it seemed to take forever...

Cheers for watching!

You are a wonderful animator!

Here is everything I liked:

- The visuals - You did such a fantastic job on this; everything is fluid and the colors are rich and warm. You created a great 'feel' for everything. I especially liked your atmospheric effects, such as the clouds as they whipped by the bird and kite as they flew. You are really good at creating a 'magical' environment, and immersing the viewers into a world.

- The audio - I like your use of sound in this; minimal sound other than a select few sound effects where needed. Music during this whole animation would have ruined it a little, in my opinion. I feel this way because with what you had, it felt like I was there, too. Music would have made me feel more like I was viewing something, rather than 'experiencing' it. That's what you did; you created an experience for the viewers.

-The animation - Very fluid and life-like. It never lagged or seemed fake or bad at any point. You definitely have a very distinct style which I enjoy. The way the girl, the bird, and the kite all sort of danced around in their own little movements, it all worked together. The clouds, too; I really enjoyed how you made the clouds sort of 'interact' with everything, too.

Overall, this animation as a whole was really amazing. You are truly very good at this, and I look forward to seeing more from you. I can't think of any negative feedback to add to this review, because everything thoroughly impressed me.
