[EDIT 5 (May 5th 2019): I know this has been long overdue but I've managed to restore this movie's greatness by re-uploading the sub parts to another domain. The old domain was RIP which was the reason this entire thing didn't work for so long. But it's back now and I hope you'll enjoy it even if it has been long overdue. Unfortunately, the project has been abandoned as is. One small error is that it won't change parts automatically and you'll need to right click the video and click on "Play" in the context menu manually. I will fix this asap!
Play All: Plays all chapters including the intro and the credits
Part A: Plays Part A, B, C and the credits
Part B: Plays Part B, C and the credits
Part C: Plays just Part C and the credits

After a long year of very hard work (I tried, I really did), stuck using just flash happy mouse adventures because unfortunately I have no tablet or any other helpful programs to aid with the animation process, I finally present the first episode of RedHand.

!NOTE: The pieces in this episode weren't exactly animated in order, and the intro part was actually made last so you may notice a slight quality drop during the first piece, but the quality will pick up as the episode goes. Also: I haven't added the extras menu yet and the scene select/pieces menus
aren't yet working fully, plus there is an audio track missing along with a few sound effects, but this project has been delayed enough, though I will be sure to fix up and add those in ASAP.

It was one heck of an experience, both stressful and gratifying. I never expected this to be such a challenge. This would be my first decent animation in my 3 years of animating, but I wouldn't have gotten anywhere without the many months of constant support, advice, and guidance from Oscar as I did this project, thanks a million for all your help bro and to Yurlyn for helping me fix all the major problems with the movie :P

The adventure with getting all my collaborators was quite insane. I was turned down more times than I can tell you, mainly because the moment I told them I was animating with stick figures they completely shut me out, but I'm surprised how many incredible people agreed to help me in the end, especially Michael McConnohie, getting someone like him to do a voice was the LAST thing I every expected to happen. Its an incredible honor to feature him in my work.

This animation took much longer than I ever thought it would, because of many factors. One is I never made a storyboard, only a script, so sometimes I would think/work for hours, even days, to accomplish the perfect camera angle or character movements I thought would fit with the animation. And trying to draw decently without a tablet is not that easy...for me at least. Plus incredible collaborators don't just fall from the sky :)

I've also hid various easter eggs thought the movie, especially (but not just) quotes and references from various movies, games, shows, and animations, some obvious, some hard to find, some long and some short. (of course everything belongs to their respective owners^^, but i don't plan to do that kind of thing with quotes anymore) See if you can spot them all :P

Runtime is a little over 14 minutes, I hope you enjoy it!

I've spent a good 12-15 minutes trying to get this to load, to no avail. Nothing I do allows me to move past the main menu. Scene selection, playing from beginning, part A, B, or C, private browsing, guest account, two different platforms, nothing works. This is a waste of time.

Edit 4-29-19: Same deal. Flash animations from nigh 20 years ago work fine, this one does not.

Shayphis responds:

Hello, Yurlyn here. I'm one of the voice actors for this movie and I also helped Shayphis setting some stuff up as an assistant programmer in order to make this run. Some parts of this movie were loaded from a different place due to NG's size limitation at the time. This also caused some issues during the initial release but it was fixed. Unfortunately, that place is down and out and it will need to be re-uploaded and this video will need an update.
As I'm of the opinion this was truly one of the greatest looking pieces of work and also being interested in the story I've been thinking of reviving this particular movie as I still have all the files. I'll do my best to fix everything and hopefully everyone can enjoy this project again. One might say it's too late but better late than never. Unfortunately this project has been abandoned by Shayphis so there will never be a part two :(

EDIT: Scratch that. I've managed to fix it by uploading the sub parts to another domain. I will redo my voice lines at some point so I don't sound like I have sock stuffed up my nose. Enjoy!

This is awesome! Fantastic job and kudos to all of you!

LOVE IT! GREAT ANIMATION, EFFECTS AND BACKGROUNDS! Besides its 2013 now, where's part 2?

Good stuff, watched this back 2 years ago. I've been going on your site, forums and etc but it seems like you've just.... diasppeared. Redhand 2 doesn't seem like it is ever going to come out, but I don't blame you. You have a life, you have stuff to do and this is your work. Hell of a great job you did so far though. I may be stupid, but I am still hoping for the 2nd one to come out.

Take all the time you need and come back soon buddy :)

For 2 years I've been wondering who the voice actor for the narrator is, I hope someone can help me, if you know who it is, can someone please let me know.
