Jack of The Lantern

Author Comments

This is my entry for Halloween 2010, so please give it a good recommendation as such. It's an adaptation of the Celtic legend of the jack o'lantern, with a bit of a twist at the end.

It's my third Flash movie, and although it's not terribly long, it was a much more involved process. Most of the work was done during the last week, with a lot of help from deadline pressure. there's a lot of stuff I would have liked to do differently, but there's also a lot that I like about it. I hope you enjoy it, because overall it was a fun experience.

--Figured out a few tricks for shot transitions
--Figured out how to use movie clips
--The use of stills works well in a lot of places

--Narration quality isn't quite what I'd prefer
--The use of stills doesn't work everywhere
--Music isn't perfect

EDIT: fixed the ad, and the automatic restarting problem (hopefully).

Very nice.

Good story, good animation.


Does Jack turn you into a pumpkin or something? He seems good company so if he wanted some company I wouldnt run I would casually walk over and ask him how his life is
