After a year of production,
i finally completed my Btech project for varsity.
The story was inspired by an exsisting company
called "Umthombo - Street Children, SA"

I have chosen to use Flash in producing my own
animation. Where I tell a story of a street child
and his transition from the streets.
This project aimed to create awareness about the
great work this volunteer organisation is doing.

Spread the awareness and show it to your friends.

Pretty twisted

It' nice to see that this video was for a cause, but I think it isn't very suiting for said cause. To have to ingest an intoxicating substance like shoe glue to have a "freaky dream" like that is beyond me. But everything else about it is all right.



First of all, thanks for using one of my tracks. Appreciate it.

The animation was nice, smooth and had a good moral behind it, a clear message. I love movies with messages. I loved the water effects you did. They did take quite a well I suspect.

A little animation with a purpose.

Your animating skills are far from refined, and the surfing sequence is actually one of your old works recycled, but the little movie is definitely not one of those "hey-everyone-I'm-bored-so-I-spam-NG" pieces. It shows a decent amount of work and care, and boasts a meaningful message.

Zeebra responds:

We all have to start somewhere and with practice we get better at animating. Thanks for watching


touching man. keep it up

Zeebra responds:

Thanks man, some motivation to get me started on the next one :)


Great Animation, i notcied you don't know how to draw, or atleast with flash by the way you made the waves and water, but hell who cares this vid was touching, i'mma look this orginzation up in a year when i get off school works :)

Zeebra responds:

Glad you liked the animation but i would love to see some examples, or recieve hints of what you would recommend for the water and waves. Thank you for the insight.
