This film was completed before I started work on Tarboy, and I figured it was about time I packaged and released it. It was my third year animation project in college and the first larger scale short film I completed. It was also the first project completed that Hania and I collaborated on.

The production of this was an absolute nightmare to say the least. Working on this project was the reason I decided to do Tarboy completely in Flash.

My overall pipeline for animation looked something like this: 1.Draw images on paper. 2. Scan into Photoshop for digital paint. 3. Bring into morphing software for head turns 4. Export into Flash for character animation. 5. Export into After Effects for compositing. 6. Export into Premier for Editing.
I'm thinking this will receive a mixed response, but at this stage I'm glad it's finally out.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the bonus features if you want to learn more about my messy pre-production process.


I was wondering when this would show up

I was this a while ago, I've been wondering why it hasn't shown up on Newgrounds before this, overall i love the visual style but the overall story isn't very detailed,

(angel?) banished
(angel?) walks through desolate plane of purgatory
(angel?) is tempted
(angel?) is brought up to the surface by a chain.

Their wasn't any real resolution to the conflict (which in itself was a little hazy)

A decent animation but...

Nothing about it gave any clue as to what the story was about. A description of any kind of what's going on would make the story much more enjoyable.

The video doesn't make any sense and is very depressing.

The animation is unique and very well done however as a WHOLE this video is at best a 5/10.

Great work.

Fantastic animation! Really really great, it looked amazing and the timing was all spot-on, just great.


I thought this was great I would like hear your story behind this flash and see if it's close to what I think the meaning behind this is.
