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!

Sir Pierson, this is absolutely perfect! I have NEVER seen a flash executed so flawlessly like this one. The sound effects were well-fitting; I felt like I was there watching her tug on the string, hearing the tension of the string as she pulled it. The musical score was a great touch as well.

The animation...I'm speechless. The animation is absolutely perfect for this story. The motion was incredibly realistic, especially when the string was being tugged or the wind was blowing her hair and the trees. I liked how natural its flight was, especially when the bird started flapping its wings over it. The animation was perhaps the best part of the flash besides the story.

And of course, the story was flawlessly constructed and executed. I could not have imagined a better plot or character construction. It was all very well done and fit the other aspects of the flash, particularly the animation.

All in all, this has got to be one of the best, if not THE best animation I've ever seen on newgrounds, and that's coming from a long-time newgrounds user. I usually provide harsh criticism for even relatively good flashes, but this was just above and beyond. Anyone who rated this flash lower than a 10 clearly has no taste for this genre.

Good luck in making and submitting any future flashes. I happily look forward to seeing more creative works like this. Outstanding job, Mr. Pierson.

The sense of atmosphere, that early dusk feeling on an autumns day, the lovely simple story, the whole design, the animation... just great!

I like the animation


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I loved the colours, the graphics, the story, how the little girl express maturity by letting the kite go. This animation made me happy.
