Asteraceae is a short film created in spring 2010. This my second animated film created during my first year of animation. It took 850 hours to create. Please let me know what you think!

It's is good, but maybe too short? I think it coul have been a bit longer.

there are 3 more parts to it silly goose


The animation of the bird was very well done.
You still could improve the fluidity while he was flying. I really like your submission!

The animation on this is better than most of the stuff that I see on this site. If I didn't know any better, it looks like a traditional hand drawn animation style that i'm more familiar with while watching looney tunes (Just...not as clean) Still, the only problem I had was your lack of effort on the music, a simple flute playing or a guitar would have worked, heck, most of the audio on this site is up for grabs as long as the artist is contributed for the video as well. Still in all, I liked it and am hoping for a second, even more fulfilling video in the near future, keep it up.

Dreamserum responds:

lack of effort on the music? do you mean the low quality? the song is actually very nice sounding but flash seems to bring down the sound a bit. If thats not what you meant, then I am very confused. there is a guitar and it is original music.

Its all hand drawn and then was scanned into flash and edited.

thanks for watching!


There was not much for this one. The art is magnificent. But this only seems like the introduction to the story title. This is just short. My real review is in the 2nd part.


the animation is so good!
